Laura Whitmore shares the first picture of her baby girl and says 'we are in love'

LAURA Whitmore shared the first picture of her baby girl and said: "We are in love."

The Love Island presenter, 35, and her husband Iain Stirling, 33, welcomed their first child together at an unconfirmed date last month.

Laura has introduced their baby to the world with a sweet Instagram post, showing the little one strapped to her front.

The proud mum – wearing a blue denim jacket and sunglasses – looked sweetly down on her newborn.

She captioned the image: "thanks for all the kind messages at this time. We are in love x"

Friends were quick to send their love, with Love Island winner Paige Turley saying: "Amazing .. congratulations guys!!! 👶🏼❤️ Xxx"

Singer Jessie Ware said: "Mazel tov Laura!!"

While Bake Off's Candice Brown said: "Oh my darling am so so happy for you both ❤️ congratulations xxxx"

It is not known when Laura gave birth, but she missed her BBC Radio 5 show on Sunday when Stacey Dooley stepped in.

Laura was pictured grabbing coffee while Iain put their baby in the car as they headed home.

The couple, who are host and voiceover man on the ITV's hit show, got hitched in Dublin in November.

Laura and Iain revealed that they were expecting their first child, posting a picture of a Guns N Roses babygro on Instagram in December.

She wrote: "I want to now share good news as it’s our news to share – and I’m gonna be honest it’s starting to look like my lock down beer belly is out of control.

"Iain and I are expecting a baby early 2021. It’s been hard to keep such happy news quiet.

"Especially the times when I’ve had to run out of live radio to get sick in a bin or my penchant for a bowl of mashed potato in the morning."

Laura also wrote about her baby girl in the final chapter of her recently released book.

In a moving ending, she wrote: "As I finish this book, it doesn't end at chapter nine, there's a new chapter coming into my life – in the form of a baby girl currently growing inside me and that scares the s**t out of me. 

"I once swallowed a bug and freaked out there was a live bug inside me. A live human is a whole new level of freaking out but I am excited because there's a lot of good in the world, there's a lot of potential.

"I want to bring up my child knowing that she has her own story to write."

She added: "She will be supported and loved. But she is the heroine of her own life, no-one else."

The sex of their daughter was accidentally revealed by Lorraine Kelly during an interview.

Talking about her book, Lorraine said: “This book this comes from personal experience, it’s lessons you have learnt along the way, isn’t it? And also advice you want to pass on to your baby girl.”
