Following the incredible support, Laura took to her Stories on Thursday morning to thank everyone for their messages.

"Have had the best few weeks of my life and couldn't have done it all without the support of my family, friends, work colleagues. Surround yourself with people who lift you. Thank you for all the love. Wishing you all a great week and so much love."

Laura and Iain confirmed the birth of their daughter last week, with an adorable picture of the proud mum carrying her newborn as they headed out for a walk.

"Thanks for all the kind messages at this time. We are in love x." A day earlier, the new parents had been photographed with their baby.

Laura only announced her pregnancy in December, when she was six months pregnant. She wrote on Instagram: "I want to now share good news as it’s our news to share - and I'm gonna be honest it's starting to look like my lockdown beer belly is out of control.

"Iain and I are expecting a baby early 2021. It's been hard to keep such happy news quiet. Especially the times when I've had to run out of live radio to get sick in a bin or my penchant for a bowl of mashed potato in the morning.

"I wasn't hungover like everyone thought. In fact I was completely sober filming the entire series of Celeb Juice, which is quite the accolade!

"We'd appreciate our privacy respected but just wanted to spread some love and a reminder of the beauty of life."
