No name for the baby has been revealed yet.

Lucy-Jo had told Twitter followers last week she was trying everything she could to hurry along her daughter's arrival, including going on long walks and eating hot curries.

She wrote: "Had two hot curries this week, lots of pineapple, long walks, hot baths, been bouncing on my gym ball, been taking raspberry tea leaf....

"Literally tried everything, so I give up! She'll come when she's ready!!!! X."

Congratulations to Lucy-Jo and Alan!
