YouTuber and Instagram star Elle Darby has taken to social media to share a gushing post about her boyfriend Connor Swift after he became a first-time dad to their son Saint in July.

Uploading a series of photos of Connor and friends modelling his new leisure wear, Elle wrote, “Find someone you can build a whole world with ❤️ beyond proud of you, now & always @connorswift1. I can’t put into words how much you inspire me. Shop @swftstore - launching at 8pm tonight. Boyfriends in the back.. it’s a must 😙”.

Fans of the couple flooded the comments with messages of support with one writing, “Saint staring and smiling right at Connor😍”, and another saying, “The way saint is looking at con in these pics🥺”.

Others were more obsessed with the collection itself, with one commenting, “Yesss so 🔥🔥 for all the bf in the back 💓💓💓” and another writing, “Boyfriends in the back gonna be looking fresh! 😍”.

Over on his own Instagram, Connor told his 188k followers, “Guys, where do I begin.

“Thank you all for the support on @swftstore on its first launch tonight, this is something I’ve had a dream of for over fives years. Tried once and failed a few years back, but this time.

“This time it’s different, SWFT is here and I’m so proud of the brand and products. Trust me when I say, I’m putting everything into this. Thank you again to everyone who’s shown love for the brand. The first step into a new adventure and a whole lot of fun.”

It’s safe to say that Elle and Connor have been keeping busy recently as they adjust to life with a little one – but they’ve also been busy planning their wedding, which is set to take place next year.

Earlier this month Elle teased some snaps of her wedding dress as she attended a fitting in London, and fans couldn’t wait to see what she’s picked.

“Considering I cried at your engagement video and pregnancy video and birth vlog…I dread to think about the wedding video🤣 I’ll need a bucket to catch my happy tears😭💖”, gushed one excited fan, while another said, “You look stunning! Congratulations on finding your dress I remember when I found mine & it's just sooo exciting!”

Back in August, Elle posted a series of pictures of the first month of baby Saint’s life and reflected on her time as a new mother.

“How do I find the words to explain the most magical moment of my life, the moment it felt like life actually began?” she said.

"The cliché everyone tells you about the new, overwhelming, all-powerful love you unlock when you hold your baby for the first time is the truest thing ever but you never really get it until the little life you created is in your arms...”.

She added, “HOW this is possible after 7 years of the deepest love I will never know, but my love and adoration for @connorswift1 has just sky rocketed after watching him become a father - I genuinely am the luckiest woman in the world to have you & you’re already our baby boy’s hero 🥇”.
