The former 'Only Way is Essex' star and his wife Becky welcomed a baby girl into the world on Monday (29.05.23) and they have named their daughter - a sibling for their four-year-old son Parker - Cali Roux.

Mario shared a photo of Becky cradling their baby in her hospital bed while holding Parker close and wrote on Instagram: "Cali Roux Falcone

"The Falcone family welcomed a beautiful little girl into the world on 29/05/23 at 10.19am. She is perfect.(sic)"

Fellow 'TOWIE' faces Billie Shepherd, Georgia Kousoulou and Jess Wright all sent messages of congratulations, as did Ferne McCann.

The pregnant star wrote: "Ahhhhhhhhhhh wow…..Cali. We can’t wait to meet her. Congratulations darlings.(sic)"

'Geordie Shore' star Vicky Pattison added: "Cannot wait to meet the little princess."

Mario announced Becky's pregnancy during an appearance on his sister Giovanna Fletcher's 'Happy Mum, Happy Baby' podcast in December last year.

He let the news slip as he discussed his mental health and said: "Even now, with the next baby that's coming..."

As everyone cheered, he continued his story and admitted he and Becky had felt they were "letting Parker down" as they struggled to conceive a second child and even went through a devastating miscarriage.

He continued: "This baby that's coming, we had IVF.

"That was a really really ... I had this thing in my head when we were tying for baby two, we had this added pressure we were letting Parker down.

"He's so ready for a sibling - when he comes home from his cousins and he loves being there, he says 'why haven't I got a brother or sister?'.

"That literally kills you as you're like I can give you anything you want as my son, but this is the one thing I actually can't give you."
