Posting a cute snap of the adorable baby girl in a white blanket, Tom wrote: ‘You should have been here tomorrow, but you just couldn’t wait to get here. // Our beautiful daughter arrived on Sunday morning at 8.30am weighing a wonderful 7lbs.

‘You gave Mummy & Daddy a little scare on the way in but you definitely made a big entrance. // I can’t wait to see you grow in to a wonderful human being.

‘My ❤️ is full of love. // A massive thanks to everyone at PRUH hospital for being so wonderful and caring to both mum and baby // To my beautiful wife. My love for you grew stronger than ever before after watching you give birth to our daughter. I’ll always be here to love and protect you both. // Aurelia Rose Parker - 30.06.19 #babyparker#babyaureliarose.’

During her pregnancy, Kelsey was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia (opens in new tab), caused by a defect in the placenta resulting in blood flow between a mother and baby being disrupted.

Fans and friends were quick to congratulate the pair on their happy news.

Made In Chelsea star Ollie Locke said: ‘Such huge congratulations to you both!!! All my love Xxx.’

Singer Samantha Harvey said: ‘Congratulations she is beautiful! So happy for you both 💕.’

Tom and Kelsey announced they were expecting in February on YouTube – much to the delight of fans.

In the video, the couple are stood between a board, which read, 'Baby Parker Due 08 July 2019' and Kelsey holds her first baby scan.

Before sharing the big news, Tom teased his fans and friends with an Instagram post of the phrase 'Something's cooking...' spelled out in spaghetti shapes.

The pair tied the knot in the grounds of Ridge Farm, Surrey, (opens in new tab) last July, after Tom popped the question in 2016.

In an interview with OK! Magazine, Kelsey said: ‘It was literally love at first sight.’

The happy couple have been together since 2009.
