  • Jessica Ennis-Hill

    Olympic champion Jessica Ennis-Hill has given birth to a baby boy.

    The 28-year-old heptathlon gold medallist announced the happy news on Twitter. She and husband Andy shared an adorable first black-and-white photo of their newborn baby boy, who they've called Reggie. 

    "Our beautiful baby boy Reggie Ennis-Hill was born yesterday. We couldn't be happier,” athlete Jessica wrote alongside the pic.

    In the snap, Jessica and Andy’s son looks precious in a stripy babygro with a lion embellishment on the front. We can’t see little Reggie’s face in the picture, but there is a glimpse of a tiny ear and hand.

    This is the first child for childhood sweethearts Jessica and Andy, who wed in May 2013.

    Congrats!

  • Billie Faiers

    Billie Faiers is no stranger to a cheeky Instagram selfie and now the reality TV star has shared her first since giving birth to her baby girl one week ago.

    The TOWIE star looks like she's made a very speedy return to her pre-pregnancy form. Dressed in a bright purple dress, she tells her followers that she’s going ‘out and about with my little princess!’

    Billie and fiancé Greg Shepard revealed the first picture of their brand new baby girl on their OK! Magazine cover shoot.

    Though the couple have yet to decide on the perfect name, they have been gushing about their new arrival on social media and think they’ll choose something classic for her middle name.

    “All the women in our family have 'Elizabeth' as their middle name so I think that will be hers,” Billie told OK!

  • Jessica Simpson

    Jessica Simpson and hubby Eric Johnson have returned from their honeymoon – and it seems they couldn’t wait to get home to daughter Maxwell and son Ace.

    The singer/actress shared a photo of her two blonde tots on her Instagram page, where they look rather forlorn and wanting their mum back.

    “There is no way these kids could be more adorable. OMG! So happy to be home snuggling!!” she wrote beside the pic.

    Jessica recently wed her former American football player fiancé on July 5th, in a lavish ceremony at San Ysidro Ranch in Southern California. The newlyweds jetted off to a Four Seasons resort in Mexico for their honeymoon straight after their ‘I Do’s’.

  • Rebecca Ferguson

    27-year-old Rebecca Ferguson recently shared a new picture of her 5-month baby bump on Instagram.

    In the snap, the singer looks glamorous in an embellished gown, which she wore for her performance alongside The Overtones at the Henley Festival in Oxfordshire.

    Rebecca, who rose to fame on the X Factor in 2010, is around 5 months pregnant with her third child.  She announced the news in April, after she fainted during a performance on on Loose Women and has revealed she’s due in the first two weeks of November.

    The new arrival will be a little sister or brother to Rebecca’s daughter Lillie-May and her son Karl.

  • Jennie McAlpine

    Pregnant actresses often have to find creative ways to cover up their bumps whilst they’re working on a film or television show, especially if the pregnancy hasn’t been written into their storyline.

    Actress Jennie McAlpine, perhaps better know as Coronation Street’s Fiz Stape, is no exception to the rule.

    Though the Corrie favourite is only 4 months along, 30-year-old Jennie wondered out loud how she’ll have to keep her bump hidden on telly, coming up with a novel hiding strategy...

    “Luckily I work behind a sewing machine,” she told The Mirror. “I’m always propping the bar up – so there are lots of things I can hide behind to cover up the baby bump.”

    Either that, she says, or she’ll have to “get a bigger handbag probably.”

    Until that day comes, Jennie is juggling working on the cobbles alongside her pregnant co-star Paula Lane and at her Manchester restaurant, alongside her partner Chris Farr. Hopefully, she’ll continue to enjoy the second trimester of her pregnancy.

    “I feel good,” she said to The Mirror. “I feel glowing.”

  • Danni Park-Dempsey

    It’s a big week for TOWIE babies!

    Billie Faiers' former co-star Danni Park-Dempsey has used her Instagram page to share a candid first look at her newborn baby girl.

    The reality TV star, who kept her pregnancy a secret for the first 8 months, posted a black-and-white photo of her holding her currently unnamed baby girl’s tiny feet in her hands. 

    New mum Danni wrote alongside the pic: ‘My baby girl makes everyday feel like a dream #toes #mummy #daughter’

    Danni and partner Fabian also used an Instagram picture to announce the birth just earlier in the week.
