Former Love Island star Laura Anderson, 34, has given birth to a baby girl.
The reality star, who shared her pregnancy journey exclusively with OK!, shared the happy news that she had welcomed her daughter, named Bonnie Rose Lucy Anderson.
Laura shared an adorable snap of her ex Gary Lucy holding the tiny newborn who was wrapped in blankets and wore a sweet pink hat.
In the caption, Laura wrote as if it was Bonnie introducing herself, whilst she revealed that she, Laura, was 'hurt' during labour.
The caption read: Hi everyone, my name is Bonnie Rose Lucy Anderson.
"I was born 02/09/23 at 06.03am and weighed 6.10lbs My Mummy & Daddy are sooooo happy and in love with me, this is our first week together.
"I’m sorry it’s taken me some time to introduce myself, I hurt my mummy a little bit and scared my daddy too (oops) we’re all now recovering well at home."
The post ended with: "Please don’t question My Mummy & Daddy on their relationship- This.. is all about me."
Laura then deleted the post.
This is the first child for Laura, while her Hollyoaks star ex has four children, India, Elvis, Sadie and Theodore, with ex wife Natasha.
Gary and Laura shared their happy baby news in February with an Instagram video of her showing off her blossoming baby bump alongside the caption: "Our hearts are full. Baby Lucy due Summer ’23.”
Just days after the announcement the couple confirmed they were no longer in a relationship, with Gary, 41, stating: "I love Laura but we are no longer together.
"My main drive as always is to work together to co-parent our child. I look forward to the arrival of the new baby.”
Laura later broke her silence on the breakup, telling us: "It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster so far," she said. "Going through a public break-up while pregnant and reading mistruths in the media has been a challenge.
"I just want to be positive and move forward, and I'm really excited about her coming along. I think if I can get through this, I can get through anything."
Laura added: "I wanted us to reconcile and I wanted things to work out.
"But because of things I found out since then, and the fact nothing has been discussed or resolved, I think for now I'm trying to just be positive and think about the baby and be strong, because everything became too chaotic."
The pair met while both looking for love on Celebs Go Dating, shortly after Laura's split from ex Dane Bowers.
A source at the time said: "Gary and Laura were all over each other during breaks from filming. They kept going off on their own and it was obvious they were hooking up.
"They're going to go on some proper dates when they're back in the UK."
Gary was previously married to actress Natasha Gray, with the pair calling time on their four year marriage back in 2018.
Laura, meanwhile, previously dated Another Level's Dane on and off, both prior and following her stint on Love Island in 2018.
The couple rekindled their romance in 2021, with Laura moving over to Dubai to live with Dane.
During her appearance on Celebs Go Dating, Laura broke down in tears as she revealed her desire to become a mum, stating that she thought Dane was "the one".
"I think my most recent break-up was the biggest in my life because it was so serious," she told the camera, as she started to cry.
"I thought that he was 'the one'. We were trying for a baby. I'm quite fresh out of a relationship, if I'm honest, which I thought was my life partner," she said.
"We were planning a lot together and it didn't work out. I'm not really sure where I'm going wrong."
