“Thanks for all the kind messages at this time. We are in love x” Laura captioned the lovely post.

Of course the Irish presenter’s Instagram was then flooded with messages of congratulations and comments of well wishes from friends, family and fans alike.

British presenter Davina McCall was quick to comment, “Yaaaaaay,” followed by a stream of cheering and heart emojis.

“Congrats guys,” wrote Irish football legend Robbie Keane, followed by a red heart emoji.

News broke yesterday afternoon of Laura and husband Iain Stirling’s new little arrival, when the two were spotted out and about getting coffee and securing their baby girl into her car seat.

Congratulations to both of the new parents on their little bundle of joy and we wish them all the best on this exciting new adventure.
