Call The Midwife star Helen George has announced the birth of her baby - six weeks early!

Helen, 33, revealed that she had given birth on Instagram yesterday in a beautiful snap with her partner and father of her baby Jack Ashton, who is also her Call The Midwife co-star.

The actress, who also competed on Strictly Come Dancing in 2015, posted four photos of herself with Jack and their newborn baby at their baby shower, alongside which she wrote a hilarious caption.

She wrote: "When your baby turns up early for her own baby shower, welcome to the world little one. What an amazing day, we have the best friends."

How adorable!

Whilst Helen hasn't confirmed any details about her little'un just yet, like the date of birth, name or gender, commenters on her Instagram post seemed pretty certain that she'd had a little girl.

One wrote: "Well a girl doesn't like to miss a party! Beautiful little family snap," whilst another added: "Congratulations to you both. She's gorgeous," and another wrote: "Congratulations!!! What a beautiful little baby girl!! You look FAB!"

But that wasn't the only bombshell that Helen appeared to drop.

In one of the four photos included in the post, Helen's ring finger could be seen - and it had a rather HUGE sparkler on it, sparking rumours that the co-stars have actually gotten engaged too!

Does that mean the couple will be announcing their engagement fairly soon, then?!

Helen, who split with her husband of three years Oliver Boot just before competing on Strictly in 2015, started seeing Jack in secret 18 months ago.

A manager at a hotel resort in South Africa told The Mirror: "They were here together and seemed very close. They spent quite a lot of time by the pool just chilling, doing nothing and being together."

Helen only revealed her pregnancy in September by appearing at the TV Choice Awards in a figure-hugging dress that showed off her baby bump.

And even though she didn't officially confirm her pregnancy in any public statement, a big ole baby bump is pretty obvious confirmation that someone is expecting!
