Television presenter Holly Willoughby has given birth to a baby girl, after going into labour a month early.
The This Morning host announced the news via her Twitter page, posting:
"Thank you for all your support these last few days. Belle Baldwin finally arrived at 5:10pm today weighing 5lbs 2oz. She's amazing."
The birth marked the end of a stressful few days for 30-year-old Holly and her husband, Dan Baldwin, after the new mum was taken into hospital on 12 April.
Willoughby's due date was not actually until 13 May, but she was noticeably absent from This Morning this week.
Her co-host, Phillip Schofield told viewers on Tuesday that she may or may not be in labour:
"First thing this morning I got a phone call from Holly saying she thought she might be in labour, and as the morning has progressed - not entirely sure - so as it stands at the moment, Holly may or may not be in labour.
"But best not here, we thought."
Holly married her TV producer husband Dan in August 2007.
The couple already have a son together, one-year-old Harry.
