Announcing the news on Twitter this morning Dan told his followers that he was "proud" of Jacqueline, adding that he loves her. Aw!

Dan tweeted: "So so so so happy to tell you all!! Our baby girl Ella arrived yesterday evening, @jacquelineMjos done SO well, proud of you. I love you." He added a red heart emoticon.

Ella is Jacqueline's first child and Dan's second, as he is also dad to son Teddy from a previous relationship.

Last August, Jacqueline and Dan announced that they were expecting a baby. The couple had rekindled their relationship earlier on in the summer and said they were "thrilled" by the news.

Throughout her pregnancy, Jacqueline kept fans updated with lots of pictures of her growing baby bump and even shared her first scan photo on Twitter.

Despite hitting a rocky patch in their relationship, Jacqueline and Dan were back on track in December and have been excitedly awaiting the arrival of their baby.

After finding out their baby's sex, Jacqueline and Dan kept fans guessing before eventually revealing last month that they were expecting a daughter together.

Along with decorating her bump to look like a Kinder Egg, Jacqueline was also treated to a baby shower by her family and friends.

The star went on maternity leave before Christmas but has vowed to return to EastEnders as Lauren Branning after taking a break.

Last week, Dan and Jacqueline attempted to get their unborn baby moving along by going for a walk in their onesies. It obviously did the trick!

Congratulations, Jacqueline and Dan!
