Jack Whitehall and Roxy Horner have announced the arrival of their first child.
The comedian and model first announced they were expecting a baby earlier this year on 15 May, with posts to each of their Instagram pages showing them and their baby scan photographs.
Horner opened up about suffering a miscarriage in 2022 in an interview with Hello magazine, reflecting how much of a 'relief' it was to 'finally fall pregnant'.
And their baby has now arrived - the 35-year-old and 32-year-old becoming parents for the first time, taking to social media to share their happy news!
Taking to Instagram, the comedian shared a couple of sweet pics of him with his newborn alongside a selfie of his partner holding 'baby rice'.
"Well this just happened! Utterly overwhelming and joyous in ways I couldn’t have even imagined," Whitehall wrote in his caption.
"In awe of my partner @roxyhorner who has been amazing throughout this journey and is going to be the greatest mum ever. So excited to have started a family of my own.
"Having vowed I’d never be that guy I am now 100% going to be the parent that shows everyone endless pictures of their kid. I also wore skechers to hospital, I think I must accept I am a full blown dad now.
"Name wise after this weekend I think ‘rice, rice, baby’ has a nice ring to it."
In the weeks leading up to the birth, Horner shared that she was 'impatiently waiting' for the arrival of the pair's child, opening up in her Instagram story about her struggles with symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD).
She said: "Thank god for my mumma looking after me during this final trimester, I actually don't know what I would have done without her.
"Getting everything baby ready with SPD has not been easy but my mumma has really helped me get things organised this last week and I'm staring to feel a bit more at ease with that.
"Just can't wait to have this baby girl here and not feel this way anymore.
"It really is excruciating to walk or move right now but not long to go and apparently all symptoms of SPD go away once bubba arrives."
According to the NHS, SPD - also known as pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain (PGP) - 'is a collection of uncomfortable symptoms caused by a stiffness of your pelvic joints or the joints moving unevenly at either the back or front of your pelvis'.
Thankfully for Horner, the pair's baby is now here and they couldn't be more overjoyed.
Fans, followers, friends and family of the couple have flooded to social media to congratulate them on the new arrival.
