She took to Instagram to open up about the experience

X Factor star Fleur East has just welcomed her first child as she reveals the unique way she gave birth in a sweet post.

Fleur, 36, first competed on the second series of the singing competition back in 2005 as a member of the girl group Addictiv Ladies - and again as a solo artist in 2014 where she ended up being the runner-up.

Since then, she's been releasing music, putting on her dancing shoes for Strictly Come Dancing, hosting Hits Radio UK and documenting her pregnancy journey for her adoring fans.

Fleur East gave birth a few weeks back (22 March).

Fleur took to Instagram yesterday to share with her 834k followers the exciting news.

She posted a series of snaps and a video holding the newborn tot alongside her French celebrity fashion designer husband, Marcel Robin, whom she tied the knot with back in 2019.

Fleur penned: "And just like that, our baby girl, Nova, is here!!"

The 'Favourite Thing' singer continued, sharing exactly how little Nova was delivered: "Our daughter entered the world via squat position into the arms of my husband and I on our living room floor!

"One day I will share my birth story with you (what a RIDE!), but for now, we are resting and doing well."

She was sure to thank the 'amazing midwives' who were by her side alongside her birthing partners, her auntie Tina and Marcel, and all their family who had been 'helping out and showering us with love'.

Fleur and Marcel tied the knot back in 2019.

"It really does take a village!" Fleur praised. "So grateful to God for this blessing."

She rounded off the heartfelt post: "Our little Nova was born on the 22 March and it feels like she’s always been here."


And it's clear fans shared similar sentiments, with one Instagram user writing: "CONGRATULATIONS. Welcome baby Nova!!!"

"The biggest congratulations. I’m so so happy for you both. Welcome the world Nova," gushed a second while a third chimed in: "Ahhhh congratulations you two! And what a gorgeous name you’ve chosen!"

A fourth echoed: "Congratulations to you both! Such a beautiful name!"

"Congratulations!" exclaimed another. "What a beautiful journey you’re embarking together!"

And a final Instagram user added: "Welcome to the world Super Nova. So much love to you and your gorgeous little family!"

Fleur first announced her pregnancy in January of this year, sharing a snap cradling her bump on New Year's Day, writing: "2024 is gonna be different."

Congratulations, Fleur and Marcel!
