Kate Ferdinand has revealed she's given birth to a baby girl.
The former TOWIE star welcomed her second child with footballer Rio Ferdinand, sharing the happy news on Instagram earlier today (16 July).
In the adorable image, the couple could be seen holding hands with their little one.
Having had a few days with their baby, the couple finally felt ready to share the news with the world.
In fact, the former TV star shared a touching Instagram caption about her newborn - even revealing her name.
She wrote: "Shae Ferdinand... 10.7.23 Our strong little girl."
The couple first announced they were expecting in January, with a stunning photo of Ferdinand in a town square cradling her bump - which was later shared on social media.
Her joy was clear, with the TOWIE star beaming for the camera in the announcement, having had a 'devastating' miscarriage only a year earlier.
Her and husband Rio had been looking forward to growing their family, with the couple first marrying in 2019 and welcoming their son Cree shortly after this.
Touchingly, the two-year-old's hand could also be seen in the picture, as they announced the birth of their second child.
Well-wishers have also been flocking to the comment, as they congratulate the 32-year-old and her other half.
Many of the comments have come from her former TOWIE castmates, including Jess Wright and Georgia Kousoulou.
Gushing about the beautiful newborn, the latter wrote: "Awwwww congratulations' followed by a lot of heart emojis."
TOWIE's matriarch, Debbie Bright, also added: "Omg huge congratulations to you all. Blessed with the best."
The news has also delighted Kate's followers on Instagram, as she'd previously kept her due date a secret.
Alongside her regal bump updates, she teased when she would give birth during an Instagram Q&A in May.
In an interview with The Sun, the busy mum also revealed she was enjoying her second pregnancy more.
However, she revealed that her latest pregnancy was much more enjoyable, saying: "It feels completely different this pregnancy."
She added: "I’ve been really busy, working a lot, and I feel relaxed. Cree’s settled in so well."
