Malin Andersson has returned to social media to share the first pictures of her baby daughter.
The Love Island star, 29, also revealed her little girl’s unique name in an emotional Instagram post where she described the birth.
“Here she is,” Malin wrote in the caption. “Meet XAYA.
“Me and Jared have been in the most beautiful, surreal baby bubble and so I took a month out to just focus on our family.
“I can’t even describe the amount of love she has given us, and how it feels to be a mum again - but to a healthy baby. I look at her and I have to pinch myself.
“She’s the spit of her dad, and is covered in black thick hair 🤣 (I’m jealous.)
“Thank-you for all of your messages, it’s been overwhelming - you guys have really followed my journey and I’m in awe of all of your support.”
While fans were quick to congratulate Malin on the beautiful baby news, others were curious as to how to pronounce her baby’s unique moniker.
“No idea how to pronounce the name,” one fan responded on Twitter. “But congratulations.”
However, Malin has shown us exactly how we say baby Xaya’s name correctly.
Typing the name out phonetically, Malin revealed the name is pronounced as: “Zay-ah .”
The influencer and campaigner also opened up about Xaya’s birth in January, where she was delivered by a c-section.
Malin explained it was a “bittersweet” moment following the death of her first child, Consy, in January 2019 after she was born seven weeks premature.
“I ended up having an emergency c-section with [Xaya],” Malin wrote. “They took her out of the same scar Consy came from.. that was a bittersweet experience for me which I needed to take in after.”
Malin's 744,000 followers were quick to celebrate the baby reveal, with Geordie Shore star Holly Hagan writing: “Congratulations babe sending love.”
Love Island alum Rykard Jenkins added: “Congratulations to you and your beautiful family.”
And Tracy Beaker star Dani Harmer sent her warm wishes: “Huge congratulations!”
