Congratulations are in order for Big Brother 2002 winner Kate Lawler who has welcomed her first child with fiancé Martin.

Martin shared the lovely news in a quick Instagram Story, writing, "Hi everyone, sorry for the radio silence, it's been a long day.

"Nuchky is fine, fit and healthy, as is Kate. We had a bit of complication but Nuchky is ok and on the quick mend and will be with us tomorrow, all being good."

Kate, 40, who wasn't due to give birth for until 15 February, announced that her waters had broken on Thursday morning.

Sharing a snap of herself on a hospital bed after having a pre-labour blood test, Kate told fans, "I guess little Nuchky is ready to meet us! 🥰 [I'm] now waiting to hear from the doctor on whether they can fit me in today for an abdominal birth.

"It’s finally happening!"

Awww ❤️.

Now, 14 hours later, Kate and Martin have welcomed a third member to their family (after their two terriers, of course).

Letting fans know that the Kate and the newborn are both healthy, Martin wrote, "@thekatelawler is absolutely pooped so I've left her to sleep.

"Nuchky is gorgeous and has lots of hair which makes me think Kate definitely has a hairy lover out there (not really)."

Martin explained that he didn't know how to share the news apart from in his "sh-t cab selfies" (bless him 😂) and added that he's already had messages from fans.

"It's been an overwhelming day," he said, "I'm glad to see she has about 200,000 aunties ready to march for her if she ever needs help."

Congrats Kate and Martin 🎉- now just to wait on the inevitable first photo...we will be keeping our eyes peeled, that's for sure.

Previously, Kate has spoken out about not wanting kids, with fiancé Martin - or Boj, as he's more commonly known - telling Hello! Magazine that he had wanted kids "for so long" but that Kate had always told him it wasn't going to happen.

Opening up about changing her mind on the matter, she told the pulbication, "I have never felt more ready [to have children].

“For a lot of my life I did feel pressurised and I wasn't ready. You have to do what's right for you. I think I am going to be a much happier person knowing that I did this when I wanted to."

In May 2020, Kate and Boj launched their podcast, aptly titled Maybe Baby, about "what happens when a woman who’s always known she doesn’t want children starts to wonder if she might want kids after all?"

Seems like they might need a new name for that podcast after yesterday's events...🤔.
