Sheridan Smith Finally Reveals Son's Name As She Shares Adorable Pic
The actress, who turned 39 on Thursday, shared an adorable picture of her cuddling the newborn, writing: "Best birthday present I could've asked for!"
It's the first proper glimpse fans have had of the little one, after Sheridan and partner Jamie Horn welcomed him back in May, and came just hours after she finally revealed his name: Billy.
Speaking on BBC Radio 2's Zoe Ball Show on Thursday, Sheridan couldn't resist gushing about her new arrival as she talked about starring in Joseph opposite Jason Donovan.
The Two Pints of Lager star confirmed she was expecting a baby with fiancé Jamie in November 2019.
Since then, she's been keeping busy with her acting work from home, recently portraying a single mum-to-be in ITV's Isolation Stories.
Self-filming in her own home in Kent, Sheridan played Mel, a heavily pregnant woman isolating alone, who is facing the prospect of having to go through childbirth without a birthing partner.
Speaking about the episode, Sheridan - who enlisted Jamie to help film - said: "I am heavily pregnant and have been isolating at home so I jumped at the chance to make a drama about the massive drama going on all around us right now.
"I think it's really important to try and reflect what's happening to us whilst it is still actually happening."

It's Sheridan's first child with Jamie, who she met at the beginning of 2018 on dating app Tinder.
Fans began to suspect that the actress may be expecting when she shared a cryptic post about throwing up back in October.
Sharing a snap of VIP passes for the musical theatre cruise she is currently singing on, she wrote: "About to set sail for 4 days, wish me luck with my morning sickness."
Since then Sheridan has dropped other not-so-subtle hints about her new addition including posting an image of a baby blanket.
Sheridan also posted on Twitter about becoming a new mum alongside a pregnant woman emoji.
"Super excited for 2020, gonna finally get to work with a producer I admire hugely! But first, my most important role to date..."
Her happy news comes after Sheridan admitted she was feeling "broody" after working with a group of adorable children on a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
"I can't tell you how much I love the kids. I am gonna miss them so much. They are all an utter joy and have made the whole experience for me," she told The Mirror.
"I will cherish the memories and watch their careers flourish. Me and Jamie now are thinking of making me a mamma."
Sheridan met Jamie now live together in her country home in Kent. The pair got engaged after just three months of dating in April 2018, as Jamie pulled out a dazzling £10,000 ring to pop the question.
