The clip shows the star holding up a tiny pair of blue dungarees and a t-shirt and was captioned: “It’s a....BOY!!!”

The star, 38, added a string of blue hearts to her message.

Smith had been teasing her baby news for a while, but took her time when it came to confirming it.

Rumours started to swirl back in October when she shared a picture of her VIP passes for a cruise, telling fans: “About to set sail for four days, wish me luck with my morning sickness.”

Later there were reports that she had told some of the cruise passengers that she “had a baby on board”.

The West End favourite also shared a couple of pregnancy memes with her fans online, which fuelled the gossip.

However, this week she left nothing open to interpretation as she shared a photograph of a gift box containing a white baby blanket with ‘Baby Smith-Horn’ embroidered on it in silver thread.

“This is too cute,” Smith captioned the image.

“Thank you so much @my1styears very lovely surprise.”

Smith is thought to have started dating 28-year-old Horn early last year after they both swiped right for each other on the Tinder dating app. The couple are now engaged.

A source close to the couple previously told The Sun: "Sheridan is head over heels in love. 

“Jamie is very serious about her. He has introduced Sheridan to his mum already."
