Hollyoaks' Bronagh Waugh has revealed that she gave birth to a baby boy three weeks ago.

The Cheryl Brady star, who has also appeared in titles such as The Fall, Unforgotten and most recently Viewpoint, took to Instagram on Wednesday (May 26) to post several snaps of her with the adorable newborn.

In the caption, Waugh wrote: "3 weeks of Heaven with my wee man, my little #cinquodemayo Baby. Mind blown. Heart bursting. I've never known tiredness like it but my God is it worth it! Completely & utterly in love."

She rounded off the upload with a selection of hashtags, including 'bless the NHS', 'can't believe I'm a mummy' and 'gratitude'.

Several of her former Hollyoaks colleagues shared their well wishes in the comments section, from Jessica Fox (Nancy Hayton) and Jazmine Franks (Esther Bloom), to Claire Cooper (Jacqui McQueen), Sophie Austin (Lindsey Butterfield) and Andy Moss (Rhys Ashworth).

Fellow Northern Irish actor Louisa Harland, who Waugh worked on one episode on hit comedy series Derry Girls, wrote: "We are sending you so much love."

"Congratulations darlings! Beautiful," Coronation Street's Catherine Tyldesley added, while her The Fall co-star Jamie Dornan replied: "This makes me happy..."

Waugh announced that she was pregnant on International Women's Day back in March, saying: "Over Lockdown I've been busy preparing for my next role (spoiler alert: it's pretty major - I'm going to be a Ma!)

"Women's bodies are incredible with what they can do and what they withstand. Absolute miracle machines and strong as an ox!"

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, and at 7pm on E4.
