Cara De La Hoyde and husband Nathan Massey have become proud parents again after their daughter was born following hospital dash.

Nathan took to Instagram to update fans on his wife's progress after she was rushed to hospital at the weekend just days after Cara revealed on Thursday that she had been diagnosed with pre-eclampsia, a complication causing high blood pressure in pregnancy.

Another added, 'You are actually amazing having the energy to post and look so fabulous being 4cm!! Wishing you a speedy and safe delivery.'
