Holly Branson looked every inch the proud auntie as she held her newborn nephew, Bluey Branson, for the first time. Taking to her social media sites on Saturday, Richard Branson's daughter gushed with pride as she cuddled up to the family's newest addition. "Meeting my little nephew Bluey for the first time. So happy to finally get a snuggle. He's Divine. @bransonsam," she told her followers. Her brother Sam Branson and his wife Isabella Calthorpe welcomed their son in January. The new arrival is a baby brother to Sam and Isabella's two-year-old daughter Eva-Deia.

Shortly after Bluey's arrival, Holly filmed her father's reaction to becoming a grandfather again. The 66-year-old entrepreneur was overcome with so much emotion that he burst into tears. "We all love surprises in my family, and have a tradition of keeping the gender of our grandbabies a secret until they are born," he told his followers. "When baby Bluey was born, I accidentally let the cat out of the bag!" Sir Richard went on to reveal how he accidently let slip the gender of the baby, as his daughter was waiting to find out herself.

The businessman was in the middle of kitesurfing when he received a call to return back home. "I answered the phone to receive the news that Blue had just been born," he wrote on his website. "As you can hear in the video, Sam, baby Bluey and I were all crying with joy. Poor Holly was waiting on to talk to Sam and didn’t yet know the news that Bellie had given birth to a beautiful, healthy baby boy. In my excitement I let it slip before Sam had a chance to tell Holly himself. But as you can see, we were all absolutely overjoyed."

Sam and Isabella - the older sister of Cressida Bonas - welcomed their first child together in February 2015, two years after the pair tied the knot in South Africa, in a romantic ceremony held at Sir Richard's private game reserve. Holly, meanwhile, is mother to two twins, Etta and Artie, aged two. The 35-year-old and her husband Freddie Andrews welcomed their twins on 20 December, 2014 - the same date of their wedding anniversary, and also that of Holly's parents, Sir Richard Branson and Joan.
