The Vampire Diaries star Candice King (nee Accola) has announced the birth of her baby daughter, Florence May King.

Earlier this month on 15 January, Candice (who plays Caroline Forbes on the hit US show) and her husband Joe King welcomed their first child together.

However, she and The Fray guitarist chose to keep their baby girl's arrival to themselves for a little while, announcing her birth ten days later on Instagram.

Taking to the photo-sharing app yesterday (25 January), Candice posted a photo of her daughter's teeny-tiny feet. Keeping her face hidden, Candice snapped her little one's toes as she lay down on a personalised blanket.

The blanket revealed Candice's daughter's name, as it had Florence May King embroidered onto it in pink lettering. Cute!

Alongside her photo, Candice simply posted a love heart emoji to tell fans she is already smitten with her bundle of joy. Since posting, the US actress has received nearly 300,000 likes on her photo and many of Candice's followers made sure to send her their congratulations.

Joe, meanwhile, shared the same snap to his own Instagram account, adding the caption: "I'm in love again."

He and Candice first revealed they were starting a family together in August last year. At the time, Joe (who has two daughters from a previous relationship), gushed on Instagram: "So proud to welcome this new life into the world with my beautiful wife and daughters. I truly am a lucky man & dad."

Candice, meanwhile, chose to debut her baby bump with a cute family snap, joking: "#ThatAintNoBurritoinMyBelly..."

She and Joe have been together for four years now, and tied the knot back in October 2014.
