"We'd always said that if we were fortunate to be blessed with a child, that would be wonderful, but we were very aware that it's not a given."

Martine gave birth ten days before her due date – baby Rafferty was originally due on Valentine's Day.

The new mother has been keeping us up to date with her baby preparations throughout her pregnancy. In her final blog before welcoming baby Rafferty, Martine revealed that the little boy's nursery was complete and ready for the new arrival.

"Baby boy's nursery is all done apart from curtains, our baby bath arrived for him and my bags are packed and ready to go," she wrote.

Martine previously said that she was excited to be having a boy, and revealed that she enjoys being the only female in her house.

"With my husband, my brother and my two American Spaniels Harry and Fred I am already surrounded by boys… And if I'm honest I kinda like it!!" she wrote.

Rafferty is the first child for both Martine and Jack, who married in a fairytale wedding ceremony in Lake Como in September 2012.
