Chanelle, who is also mum to son Blakely from her previous relationship with footballer Matthew Bates, confirmed the arrival of little Frankie at the end of August, with an Instagram picture of a quote which read: 'So the adventure begins...'

She said at the time: 'Ryan, Blakely and I are absolutely over the moon to announce that the new addition to our little family has arrived safely and in a perfect package on Tuesday 29th August 2017 at 1:34am. ❤️ #ThreeBecomesFour 👨👩👦👦'

Throughout her pregnancy, Chanelle was candid about the challenges she'd faced, admitting during an appearance on This Morning in June that she'd been struggling with morning sickness and body image issues whilst carrying her baby.

'Whilst I would not change it for the world and I can't wait to meet the baby, I don't want to be ashamed to say that I'm absolutely miserable,' she told hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes.

'In no way am I ungrateful. I'm so grateful that I could have a baby especially when I have polycystic ovaries and I' overweight – but it's just a miserable miserable time.'
