When Scarlett Moffatt announced that she'd had a baby with her boyfriend, her social media was flooded with well wishes from friends and fans.
Sharing the news to Instagram, the 32-year-old gushed: "My darling boy I can’t stop crying looking at you as I can’t quite believe you’re mine. You wanted to meet us early at just 35 weeks.
"Me & your daddy love you so much that I can’t even put this feeling into words. Our heart and soul feels complete & ready to burst. I will forever and always be grateful to be your mammy.
"I Can’t thank @scottdobby enough & to the midwife’s Helen & Charlotte & all of the NHS team at Durham Hospital.
"You will all forever hold a special place in my heart for looking after us all with such compassion. Let the baby bubble commence."
The heartfelt statement accompanied an adorable photo of Moffatt holding her son on her chest, with Dobinson grinning in the background.
