This Morning star Sian Welby has confirmed the arrival of her first child. The radio and TV presenter announced the news that she and partner Jake Beckett are expecting their first child back in February.

Sian announced the news live on the Capital FM Breakfast show alongside former host Roman Kemp and co-star Chris Stark. She said at the time: "I’ve got a bit of an announcement for you... I’m pregnant! I don’t know how I’ve managed to keep it from you for so long..."

Then earlier this month, Sian became emotional as she was thrown a baby shower on air as the team doted on the mum-to-before she revealed her baby's gender for the first time alongside co-stars Chris and Jordan North, who replaced Roman as host of Capital Breakfast earlier this year.

Sian said on-air that it has been "an absolute pleasure and honour to share this pregnancy with you all". She continued: "I'm at that point where I'm 38 weeks - I've got 11 days to go. Before I go off on baby leave I've decided I want to share one more thing with everyone. We are a family. And I have told my nearest and dearest what me and Jake are having because we did find out the sex...

"So I've decided as a huge thank you to all of you that have been on this journey with me, I'm gonna tell you what I'm having." She then exclaimed: "It's a girl!" which was followed by screams from Jordan and Chris as well as well aa a whole lot of confetti in true Capital style.

And on Saturday (June 29), Sian confirmed the safe arrival of her baby daughter, confirming her name as Ruby and shared the first adorable snaps of the bundle of joy. The first photo showed the newborn curled up with her back to the camera, showing a personalised brown cardigan with her name across the back.

Two other photos showed Sian and Jake, a radio producer, beaming with joy as they cuddled and held their first child. "Our little Ruby," Sian wrote alongside the post before adding it to her Instagram Story and writing: "Here she is!"

And her celebrity pals were quick to respond. Former Capital FM co-star Sonny Jay, who recently became a first-time dad, said: "Ruby & Mia are already besties and they don’t know it yet." Singer Pixie Lott replied: "Congratulations so beautiful!!" Presenter Julia Bradbury commented: "So many congratulations. Welcome to the best club in the world."

This Morning shared: "A massive congratulations to you both, from the whole team here at TM! We can’t wait to meet little Ruby!" Chris Stark posted: "Welcome to the world little Ruby. Cannot wait to meet you." Joe Dommett typed: "Such great news!" This Morning's Ashley James added: "Congratulations, so happy for you! Love her name x."
