The successful delivery news follows the couple's reluctance to overshare as they waited until November to announce the expectance news due to Victoria's health complications.

Victoria had been regarded as a high-risk pregnancy due to her blood cell disorder (sickle cell anaemia) which was discovered back when she was 22.

The happy family suffered further complications as she revealed that her baby had been breech for the last two months.

The couple went on to announce that Victoria would have to undergo a cesarean delivery (opens in new tab) as the baby's position had not changed and her due date was looming.

Victoria, who was due this month, later announced on Instagram that a procedure to move the baby the baby's head down worked and she was back on track for a safe delivery.
