"Marvel Mae Carroll," Andy penned alongside red heart emojis. "Fairy Tales Do Come True Look At Us We Had You," he added.

Fans of the couple couldn't help but point out that their new addition to the family shares the same name as the Marvel Comic Books, which have given us Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, and many more.

Billi and Andy's children

The couple started dating in the summer of 2013 and announced their engagement after a romantic mini-break in Rome in November 2014.

Speaking about her first pregnancy back in 2017, Billi admitted she struggled to adjust to her changing shape.

She told new! magazine: "My body changed quite early in my pregnancy – your whole body shape changes and it took me a while to adapt to that, but I've enjoyed the experience of dressing my bump. I'm finally embracing my bumps, lumps and curves!"
