Charlie made the Welsh presenter giggle while she was in a birthing room, as he started rearranging things on the shelf before things got too much and he had a doze.

As he slept on the bed, Alex joked: "But even he got a bit bored as we waited for contractions. Reminded him later of how many babies have probably been born on that beanbag!"

She then shared a photo of as she went into labour, and captioned it: "Finally we had a bit of action. Got to love a bit of gas and air…"

The star also posted a heartwarming photo of her holding her newborn daughter as she breastfed, and a picture of midwife Audrey, who helped deliver the baby.

In a post announcing her daughter's birth, the 44-year-old gushed: "We have some news... Our beautiful daughter came safely into the world on Saturday afternoon 21.08.21.

"Tiny, but perfectly formed we are all beyond happy and besotted by her, especially Ted and Kit. Watching them with their brand new little sister is just the best and we can’t believe how lucky we are to have the 3 of them and to be a family of 5."

Confirming they will announce the name shortly, the proud mum added: "It still doesn't feel real!!! Thank you to everyone at the Queen Charlotte hospital for all your support again, especially super midwife Audrey. Name will be incoming soon xx."
