Ellie Warner just welcomed her first child, son Ezra, with her boyfriend Nat Eddleston, and she delighted her social media followers when she posted a sweet post-birth snapshot for a very special reason. 

Taking to Instagram, the Gogglebox star shared an image of herself in her birth pool at home, holding up her little by and gazing at him adoringly.

 Ellie captioned the picture: "International home birth day [heart emoji]. Was literally the best day of my life [smiling face emoji]."

The star's fans were delighted, and in some cases surprised, that Ellie was able to give birth at home, with one writing: "Amazing, so inspirational! Are you allowed home births when it’s your first now? I hope it went as smoothly as possible for you x."

A second commented: "I had all 3 of my children at home in a birthing pool. Amazing experiences, each one of them. I feel very lucky to have had them at home as I had many friends who wanted to do this but ended up in hospital. Congratulations and well done! Xx."

Previously, the new mum had shared a post marking her and her son's trip out of the house, with baby Ezra adorably wrapped up in a leopard print baby carrier. She wrote in the caption: "Took the stretchy wrap for a test drive." 

Fans were quick to react to the first snap, a mirror selfie that showed Ezra's baby wrap matching the carpet in Ellie's home. One wrote: "Love that it's animal print and matches your carpet!!" while another added: "Matches your carpet - outstanding."

Ellie announced the arrival of her first child during last Friday's episode of Gogglebox. The hairdresser introduced her newborn while sitting on her sofa before handing him over to her sister, Izzi, for a cuddle.
