Amy Childs smitten with Sam Faiers' baby boy

Amy Childs has enjoyed her very first cuddles with friend Sam Faiers' newborn son. The former TOWIE star, 25, shared a sweet snapshot after being introduced to one-month-old Paul Tony on Tuesday, showing her carefully cradling the baby boy as he sleeps peacefully in her arms.

"So I got to finally meet baby Paul today. He is absolutely beautiful @samanthafaiers1 can't wait for more cuddles tomorrow… #auntieAmy #baby," she wrote alongside.

Sam and her property developer partner Paul Knightley welcomed their son on 29 December - just two days before her 25th birthday. The little boy has been showered with love from the couple's friends and family, including Sam's sister Billie Faiers, who is clearly totally smitten with the new arrival.

Just a few hours before Amy's visit, Billie – mum to 18-month-old Nelly - uploaded a photo of herself gently kissing Paul, which she captioned: "My darling little nephew I love you so much."

Sam has treated her followers to a number of photos of her son since his birth, and proudly marked his one-month birthday with a sweet collage of snapshots. "Can't believe our little man is 4 weeks old today… one month," she wrote. "You bring us so much happiness x."

Fans will soon get a glimpse inside Sam and Paul's experiences of starting a family in a new ITVBe special, Sam Faiers: The Baby Diaries. The one-off show, which airs on Sunday 7 January, will document Sam's pregnancy, scans and baby shower, through to the baby's arrival and the couple's first few days as parents.

Sam and Paul confirmed they were expecting their first baby together in August, 10 months after they started dating. Sam announced the arrival of their son with a sweet black and white photo which showed the new parents holding his tiny hand. "Welcome to the world our beautiful baby boy💙 29.12.15," she wrote alongside.
