He then teased fans with a glimpse of the newborn in the hospital in a boomerang video clip which showed him cradling Maddox, followed by a selection of close-up shots to reveal more details including the weight and unusual baby name.

'Welcome to the world baby Maddox.' he wrote. 'He’s 5 and half weeks early but he’s a healthy 5.5lbs and Mam and baby doing amazing.'

Both Aaron and Talia had kept fans updated with the pregnancy by documenting the long labour after she was taken into hospital several weeks early as the baby wasn't due to arrive until May.

Aaron shared a snap from one of their last date nights and captioned it, 'Last night literally was our last date night for a while, I think the hot food broke Talia’s waters early this morning.'
