"We are taking a week away from social media to enjoy our newborn love bubble but I promise to share all the details once I’m back online next week."

Dr Zoe, 41, hasn't yet shared whether she had a boy or a girl, or what the baby's name is, as she takes some time to enjoy her new family in private.

On Monday's This Morning, the new mum's co-stars Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield offered their congratulations and wondered whether the new arrival was a boy or a girl.

Willoughby said: "Congratulations, Zoe, we're looking forward to seeing you."

Schofield added: "We don't have any details other than that, we don't know if it's a boy or a girl."

Dr Zoe first announced her pregnancy in January, saying she had been keen to become a mum for a while and had even looked into going down the sperm donor route before meeting McKay.

Recently, she told Hello! magazine: "I'm feeling a bit apprehensive, but also there's a small side of me that's looking forward to the birth and I can't wait to meet the baby.

"I can't believe I am saying that! I've witnessed my body go through this incredible thing and have got this newfound trust and faith in what it's capable of."
