Maria Fowler has given birth to her first child...
The Only Way Is Essex’s Maria Fowler has welcomed her first baby girl. And she has the cutest name.
New pictures show the reality star and her partner, Kelvin Batey, leaving the Royal Derby hospital ward today cuddling their newborn wrapped in blankets and a matching hat.
Although the proud parents have only posted the above snap on social media, Kelvin confirmed that both mum and daughter are healthy with an adorable tweet.
He wrote: ‘Finally got my girls home after a complicated birth.
‘So proud of the both of them and thankful things are ok now. Evie Paris Batey 25/9/16.’
The racer added: ‘To meet my soulmate and be lucky enough to start a family with her is the best thing that has ever happened to me.
‘Nothing can compare. So happy.’
Okay, that is too cute.
Fans have been quick to congratulate the pair, and it seems like everyone is loving the name as much as we are.
One fan replied: ‘@KelvinBatey555 @MariaFowler glad everything is ok. Congratulations and what a beautiful name xxx’.
‘Congratulations guys bet she’s gorgeous love the name’ said another.
A third added: ‘Ah congrats to you both. Cute name to’ [sic].
TV beauty Maria has been looking ready to pop recently, proudly showing off her beautiful baby bump on Instagram. But she’s not had the easiest few months after suffering with severe pelvic pain.
The star was diagnosed with SPD – Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction – a condition that causes pain in the pelvic region, meaning the poorly mum had to use crutches before the birth.
She told The Sun Online: ‘I’ve got SPD, it’s a problem with my pelvis. I went to physio and have to rest now and use crutches until the baby comes.
‘It’s the most painful thing ever.’
Ouch. Well we’re glad to hear the family are all doing well.
