Casey urged her baby to hurry up but he decided to take his time...

Casey has  been very open about her journey into motherhood and is often very open and honest on her social media. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long until we see some proper pictures of her little one and find out what name she has decided on.

Do you think she'll go for a traditional baby name or something more unusual?

Congratulations to the new parents – we cannot wait to see some pictures of the adorable little one!
