SO sweet, right?

Little Evie can be seen nestled into Maria, and while it's the first full photo of her daughter that Maria has shared, the 30-year-old made sure not to focus on Evie's face - choosing to capture her side profile instead.

Maria and her boyfriend Kelvin Batey (Evie's dad) have already spoken of their wish to keep their baby's face private from social media. In a series of tweets, Maria explained her decision and told fans she didn't want her daughter to be subjected to negative comments online.

Maria said: "Not publishing our baby's face online has nothing to do with a 'mag deal'. She is the most precious thing in our life and we are unsure as to whether we want to expose her images to the nutters & scumbags that seem to crawl out the woodwork on comments sections... she is innocent, tiny and vulnerable and we want to enjoy her to ourselves before we decide whether to share our precious photos online."

"But I can tell you all she is the most beautiful, perfect little girl in the whole world and her safety and happiness is our priority." Maria added.

Alongside her Snapchat, Maria had posted the caption: "Never wants to sleep." It's not the first time she has spoken about her sleepless nights of late, as Maria tweeted recently: "It's so hard to get Evie to sleep at night."

Still, the lack of shut eye is proving worth it as Maria has been gushing about her new addition. Speaking of Evie, she tweeted on Saturday (8 October): "Saturday morning cuppa in bed and cuddles with my little girl. Nothing in life could compare to having a baby."

Maria gave birth on 25 September, but she and Kelvin chose to introduce Evie to fans four days later due to a "complicated birth" - Maria had lost two litres of blood and required a blood transfusion.

At the time, Kelvin had tweeted: "Finally got my girls home after a complicated birth. So proud of the both of them and thankful things are ok now."

Maria, meanwhile, told fans: "Feel like everything I've ever done is so minor & irrelevant to where my life is now, waking up with my soulmate and little girl is life."

She and Kelvin first announced they were starting a family together in March. They have now been dating for over a year.
