Billi Mucklow and her footballer fiancé Andy Carroll are the proud parents of a baby boy. The new parents announced the safe arrival of their son on Monday, sharing a beautiful family photo showing them doting on their tiny newborn.

"Welcome To The World Our Beautiful Baby Boy," new mum Billi, 26, proudly captioned the snapshot.

Father-of-three Andy, 26, also shared the picture - and hinted that the new arrival's name could begin with the letter A. "Welcome To The World Little AC," the West Ham United star wrote. "9 Months Of Cooking And What A Wonderful Job You Have Done @billimucklow."

Billi, who previously appeared on The Only Way Is Essex, and Andy started dating in the summer of 2013, but they only went public with their romance in February the following year. They got engaged last November, after the romantic sportsman whisked Billi away for a surprise birthday weekend in Rome.

"Last Night The Love Of My Life Asked Me To Marry Him," the delighted reality star posted on Instagram. "I'm So Happy! @andytcarroll You Are My Everything And I Can't Wait To Be Your Wife! #MrsCarroll."

One month later, Billi - who left TOWIE in 2013 to focus on her Bikram yoga studio and her Beaus and Belles beauty salon - happily announced her pregnancy. The couple broke the news by sharing a sweet seasonal photo showing Billi wearing a festive jumper with the words "Making my little pudding", while standing next to Andy who is smiling and pointing at her tummy.
