"Couldn't wait to share our lovely news with you all." Kimberley also posted icons of a baby and baby bottle.

Before his birth, she had told Reveal: "I have got so many babies around me at the moment - friends, family and my sister is expecting again, so I'm going to be an aunty for the second time.

"I love kids so it's something I'm definitely going to do in the future."
