The couple are yet to reveal any further details about their little boy, including his name or his weight, but Cara did send out a tweet with a number of emojis.

The happy news comes just a month after Cara and Nathan confirmed they were dating again, following their split earlier this year.

After weeks of rumours that the pair had sorted out their differences and were back dating, TOWIE** **star Nathan finally confirmed it when he took to Instagram to share a cute photo of the parents-to-be.

Sharing a photo of Cara kissing him on the cheek, Nathan wrote, 'To squash all the rumours me and @cara_delahoyde are back together and stronger than ever !!! Right before xmas 😊😍 #happyfamily' [sic]

Cara then shared the same photo, writing the words, 'The rumours are true 👀 Hands off he’s mine ❤️'.

The reality stars first found love on popular ITV dating show** Love Island** back in 2016. After winning the show things seemed to be going well for the pair until they announced their split earlier this year.

Cara wrote on Twitter at the time, 'Me & nath have split 💔 sometimes love just isn't enough, but what will be will be ❤️ thankyou for everyone's support lately' on Twitter. [sic]

Just a few weeks later, Cara announced she was pregnant with Nathan's child to OK! Magazine, adding, “It’s a shame and a sad situation. I know a lot of people will think, well you’re going to have a baby together so just stay together – but we’re not going to do that just to look like the perfect couple.”

Now, with the couple back together, they will be spending time as a family for their little boy's first Christmas.

Congratulations to the couple! 👶
