"My waters broke at my Baby shower last Wednesday and one thing lead to another.... we are delighted to announce we have a beautiful very little baby boy with the loveliest little soul."

The star revealed Reggie-James was born on Sunday (September 9) and praised the hospital staff, calling them "truly amazing".

The reality star, who won the 2010 series of the Channel 5 show, announced that she was expecting a baby back in May, leading to congratulations from a number of stars including Ashley James and Chanelle Hayes.

"We are so excited," Josie said at the time. "I feel so relaxed and calm. Although I think I'm still in shock.

"We left our first scan and I just looked at Terry and said, 'What have we done?!' Life is going to change a lot, but we are so happy."

In other big Big Brother news, it's been revealed that Channel 5 is ending the series and sister show Celebrity Big Brother, with the upcoming civilian show serving as the last.

"The forthcoming series of Big Brother will be the last – of either celebrity or civilian versions – on Channel 5," the broadcaster said in a statement shared with Digital Spy.

Big Brother's final launch night airs tonight on Channel 5 at 9pm.
