Jorgie Porter has given birth to a baby boy.

The 34-year-old actress has taken to social media to announce that she's welcomed a baby boy with her fiance Ollie Piotrowski.

Alongside a photo of herself and Ollie leaving hospital with their son, Jorgie wrote on Instagram: "Welcome to the family…. Our baby boy .. Forest (sic)"

In the photo, Ollie is seen carrying the baby in one hand while he wheels a suitcase with the other.

Jorgie - who is best known for playing Theresa McQueen on 'Hollyoaks' - has already been inundated with congratulatory messages from some of her showbiz pals.

Jessica Fox - who plays Nancy Hayton on the Channel 4 soap - said on the photo-sharing platform: "Massive congratulations to all of you and welcome to the world Forest! You are SO loved! (sic)"

Earlier this year, Jorgie admitted that her pregnancy news was "a dream come true" after previously experiencing baby loss.

The actress said: "We're thrilled to reveal that we're expecting a baby boy. Ollie and I didn't mind either way, of course. All we wanted was a baby.

"He's certainly very active, and I can feel him doing somersaults and backflips. It's incredible to think what we've created."

Jorgie went through two unsuccessful pregnancies in less than a year, and she received the news of their second on the same day as their engagement party.

She shared: "I felt we had to go through with the party as we were in a room full of friends and family who love us.

"It was so hard not telling anyone, but we knew we'd have their support when we told them later.

"We've learnt to appreciate every moment and after our experience over the past year, Ollie and I have become stronger than ever. Now we can't wait to share that love with our little one."
