"It's a Girl," he wrote. "Welcome to the world Zofia Aniela Buswell born at 5.33 this morning 20th August 2021 weighing 3380 grams and 51cm long - she already has rocked our world and melted our hearts, our long awaited Baby Buzz, named after Mel's grandmother."

Mel later made her own heartwarming post, with some snaps of her newborn cuddled up with both her and Andrew.

"And then she decided to join us on the other side - our precious little Zofia Aniela Buswell {20.08.21} and our lives will never be the same again," Mel wrote.

Dianne was over the moon with the joyous news, and quickly took to her Instagram Stories to share her joy with her followers.

The Strictly professional also shared some beautiful photos of her parents cuddling the new family member, before apologising for the "baby spam".

Dianne's family live in Australia while she is based in the UK with boyfriend Joe Sugg, but we're sure she's planning a trip out to see her new niece as soon as she can!

Dianne isn't the only Strictly alum to have celebrated some baby news recently, as new It Takes Two host Janette Manrara's friend, Anna Haugh, welcomed a baby boy.

Janette shared a picture of the new mum cradling her son shortly after his birth, and added a giant 'Congrats' banner to the adorable snap.

Her Strictly co-stars also rushed to congratulate the new mum, with Katya Jones commenting: "Huge congratulations Anna!!!! Such a perfect little guy!!!" Oti Mabuse added: "Congratulations," followed by three heart-eyes emojis.
