He told followers he was "so proud" of both Maria and little Evie following a "complicated birth."

Kelvin tweeted: "Finally got my girls home after a complicated birth. So proud of the both of them and thankful things are ok now." He then revealed the couple's chosen name for their daughter, adding: "Evie Paris Batey 25/9/16."

Kelvin has kept any other details regarding Evie's birth private and described Maria as his "soulmate." He added in a second tweet: "To meet my soulmate & be lucky enough to start a family with her is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Nothing can compare. So happy."

In the lead up to Evie's birth, Maria had kept fans updated, revealing that she was overdue after reaching her due date. She joked on Twitter: "She's taking after her mummy already.... LATE."

However, fans had grown concerned following a cryptic tweet from Maria. She posted a quote that read: "Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations," while Kelvin had tweeted her to say: "@MariaFowler just remember what I said to you... so proud and I always will be."

We're glad to hear both mum and baby are doing ok!

Maria initially announced she was expecting in March, earlier this year, on Mother's Day. She and Kelvin revealed they were set to become parents for the first time on Instagram and shared a photo of themselves wearing identical shoes, alongside a miniature pair. Maria had captioned her photo: "As it's Mother's Day, @KelvinBatey555 and I are pleased to announce a new addition is on its way later this year."

Kelvin, meanwhile, gushed: "Really looking forward to finally filling these shoes later this year. So happy and proud of @MariaFowler."

He and Maria have been dating since last year, and speaking about boyfriend Kelvin previously, Maria had said: "This beautiful, kind talented human. I don't want to be one of those that posts my relationship all over here but I never thought I would find someone like this such an honest, loyal, kind, gentleman. I'm very lucky."
