The 27-year-old reality star revealed on Instagram on Thursday (01.11.17) she had welcomed a baby girl into the world a week ahead of her due date.

She shared a picture of the sleeping tot - with her head cropped out of the shot - on Instagram and, alongside a string of heart emojis, wrote: "Wellcome to the world my darling. Didn't expect to see you a week early. I'm so in love & bursting with pride. It's a girl (sic)"

Ferne, who has the baby with her ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins - who is currently on trial over a nightclub acid attack - was said to have been planning to film her birth for her upcoming 90-minute TV special 'First Time Mum'.

A source said recently: "Ferne has got an all-female team on standby ready for the baby to make an appearance, made up of friends and birthing partners, midwives and an all lady TV crew at the ready. There are discussions, but it might not happen.

"If it happens, it'll be a warts and all show - nothing will be missed. But if The 'This Morning' showbiz presenter hasn't been seen on screens since she confirmed her pregnancy and spoke out about Arthur allegedly throwing acid at party revellers earlier this year.

Ferne was forced to announce her pregnancy early after Arthur was arrested on suspicion of involvement in an acid attack at London nightclub Mangle in April.

The brunette beauty dumped her now-former flame almost immediately but admitted at the time that the incident had added extra stress to her pregnancy.
