Stacey Dooley gives birth to first child with Kevin Clifton and shares name

Stacey Dooley has confirmed that she has given birth to her first child with boyfriend Kevin Clifton.

The documentary maker, 35, took to Instagram to share the happy news that she and former Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Clifton, 40, had become parents to a baby girl.

Uploading a photo of an envelope revealing her daughter’s Disney-inspired name, she wrote: “Our Daughter is here. My little masterpiece! I’m COMPLETELY OBSESSED. Love you Minnie, Love you Kev x.”

The couple’s celebrity friends were quick to offer their congratulations in the comments.

“Huge congrats!” wrote This Morning presenter Dermot O’Leary followed by two kisses.

“Oh congratulations!!! Sending you all the biggest hugs and all our love,” gushed model Daisy Lowe, who will soon welcome her first child too.

While Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Nancy Xu Xi chimed in with five heart-eyed emojis and wrote: “Yeahhhhhhhh”.

Dooley - who won Strictly Come Dancing in 2018 when she was paired with Clifton - first revealed that she was expecting a baby in August.
