Ola then shared an adorable image of six-month-old Ella in her highchair beaming at the camera, which she captioned: "And this is today… How lucky are we," tagging her husband.

After revealing their happy news, the couple went on to film their gender reveal for HELLO!, which they shared in December.

James said: "Because we were quite nervous going through IVF we didn't want to jinx anything

"Now we know it's a little girl it just feels very real now. It's amazing. It's brilliant."

Ola added: "As a couple, we always wanted to know what we're having and I think Christmas is the best time to find out. I was so emotional!

A little girl is the best thing that could happen to James, honestly. He's not going to let her go."

Shortly after her birth, Ola said: "It’s been amazing and overwhelming at the same time. We’ve wanted this for so long.

"We had a lovely life, but this is making us feel so much happier than anything else we have done. Nothing in our careers measures up to this. It feels perfect."
