This Morning presenter Sian Welby has revealed she's given birth to her first child.

The 37-year-old, who co-hosts Capital Breakfast with Jordan North and Chris Stark and also appears on the ITV show, is in a relationship with Heart Breakfast producer Jake Beckett.

Taking to Instagram today (29 June), Welby posted images of her newborn daughter, wearing a knitted jumper revealing her adorable name.

She also shared pictures of herself and Jake cradling their child at home.

Sian wrote: “Our little Ruby.”

Underneath the post, co-host Chris commented: “Welcome to the world little Ruby. Cannot wait to meet you.”

Many have flocked to the comments section of the Instagram post to congratulate Sian on her recent arrival.

"Awwww what a beautiful first photo to see as I opened Instagram Sian. Congratulations, Ruby is such a gorgeous name too. You both look a picture of happiness," one person commented.

Another added: "Yayyyyyy been checking every few hours. Welcome to the world Ruby, congrats Sian and Jake, hope you are all doing well."

While a third remarked: "Aaaaaawwwww congrats!!!! She’s gorgeous well done mama!!!! Lots of love to all 3 of you xx."

Sian had announced her pregnancy live on air in February, saying: “Being serious guys, I’ve got a bit of an announcement for you… I’m pregnant.”

The Nottinghamshire-born broadcaster also told Roman Kemp, who left the radio show earlier this year and was replaced by Jordan, and Chris that she did not how she 'managed to keep it from you for so long'.

Sian also said: “The stress I’ve gone through trying to pretend… to be drinking.”

Following the news, Sian's former co-host Roman said: “Oh my god! Oh mate I’m so happy for you and Jake as well!”

Sian explained to her colleagues how she had managed to keep the news a secret, revealing she had even intercepted a drinks order at the Christmas party so as not to raise suspicion.

"At the work do, I ran downstairs and I intercepted the order and asked them to make one a virgin mojito," she said.

"It's crazy to finally tell you."

Sian also shared a cute post on social media at the time, posting a series of polaroid photos of her and Jake, her baby bump and some scan snaps, too.

"We have some news," she captioned the post.
