Louise Roe announces arrival of her first child with adorable family picture

The TV presenter shared a sweet family snap and revealed her daughter's name

Louise Roe has revealed that she's become a mother for the first time.

The 36-year-old shared the happy news on social media yesterday, taking to Instagram to upload an adorable post.

'The last few days have been a life-changing whirlwind and the best of my life. Welcoming our daughter, Honor Florence Crosby Hunkin, born January 11th', Louise wrote.

'We are both doing well, and enjoying getting to know each other. @mackenziehunkin and I are just besotted ❤️.'

Louise accompanied her words with a couple of gorgeous snaps, the first of which shows her beaming as she cradles her newborn daughter in her arms while wearing a hospital robe.

The TV star's husband Mackenzie gazes lovingly at his wife in the photo.

Louise's second shot is just as cute - the new mum can be seen resting in bed with Honor close to her chest.

The beautiful baby girl sports a pink striped hat in both images.

Italian fashion icon Chiara Ferragni - who is currently preparing for the birth of her first child with rapper fiancé Fedez - led the way when it came to sending a congratulatory message.

'Can't wait to meet her babe', she said while popular US blogger Julia Engel added: 'Congrats Louise!!!! I'm so happy for you and your family.'

Louise has shared numerous updates about her pregnancy on Instagram in recent months, after announcing she was pregnant back in August.

'Christmas was lovely but low-key, I got wiped out with a cold and bronchitis, which has totally taken all my energy! I haven't been able to work out for two weeks (have barely got out of bed actually) but Mackenzie has kept me entertained', she said in December.

'I lost four pounds that week which scared me a bit, but I put it all back on by yesterday. The baby is in the correct position and bigger than average- she's in the 85th percentile! Which is good news - apparently she has a chubby tummy 💕. Her nursery is finished and we will show you pictures very soon... Casa Hunkin is ready for her to begin her arrival in a couple of weeks.'

Congratulations to the new parents!
