Their new addition arrived back in December!

Kelvin Fletcher and Eliza Marsland have welcomed a little boy to their family and he arrived back in December!

Actor Kelvin Fletcher, perhaps best-known for his stint on the popular ITV soap Emmerdale, announced he was going to become a father-of-two back in August. (opens in new tab)

Kelvin and Eliza hadn’t confirmed if they were expecting a little boy or girl (opens in new tab) and although they documented the pregnancy on social media, they kept their little one’s arrival pretty low key.

Kelvin only confirmed the news on his Instagram in January, posting a photo of Eliza holding their new addition and wearing elephant shaped glasses from what looks like the popular kids game Doh Nutters. (opens in new tab)

The couple recently shared with fans on Instagram that they had bought a farm together, with many fans asking where is Kelvin Fletcher's farm? (opens in new tab)

Kelvin and Eliza are already parents to two-year-old Marnie but they haven’t shared any pictures as a family of four just yet. The couple have decided to call their little boy Milo but haven’t revealed if he has any middle names.

They haven’t explained any special meaning behind the baby name but according to the Baby Centre Milo is the Latin form of Miles and could be linked to the Slavonic word milu, which means merciful.

We don’t know Milo’s exact birthday but we are sure Kelvin and Eliza will let us know nearer to the time…
