"So grateful for you," she captioned it. "I'm so glad you chose me to be your mummy Nala Rai."

The Leela Lomax actress announced on December 9 she'd welcomed a baby with partner Paul Barber after a secret pregnancy.

She shared a black-and-white picture of him carrying the car seat out of the hospital alongside emojis of a baby and a rainbow.

She recently shared a sweet image of her baby's tiny hand gripping her thumb, writing: "You made me breath again."

Kirsty-Leigh also shared a post about her daughter Penny-Leigh, who was tragically stillborn in 2019.

She wrote at the time: "Our beautiful baby girl, Penny-Leigh Barber was born sleeping on the 21st of December 2018 at 6.49am, 29 weeks & 3 days young.

"My heart has never felt pain like it. Sleep sweetly our angel. We will always love you. Love your Mummy & Daddy. My Everything."

Kirsty-Leigh joined Hollyoaks in 2013 as part of the Lomax family, and the half-sister of Ste Hay.

Leela's years in Chester have typically been quite dramatic right from the start.

It was revealed that Peri wasn't actually her younger sister but her daughter following a teenage pregnancy, her partner Cameron was found responsible for the death of her parents, and she welcomed her son Daniel prematurely following a relationship with Louis Loveday.
