Tina looked smitten with her much longed-after daughter as she cradled during her appearance on ITV’s This Morning.

Tina was joined by her husband Paul Chase, who is nearly 20 years her junior.

The actress said: ‘I feel privileged and charmed and so lucky to have her. She’s so content, she’s not a crier – yet.’

Flame slept throughout the interview.

Tina sparked controversy over her decision to receive IVF treatment in her 50s.

She responded to critics, saying: ‘I’m not saying you should run out at 50 and get pregnant, but we should encourage debate on older women who are now more successful in the workplace, more educated, can make better choices with men and relationships.’

Tina continued: 'Why shouldn’t you have the opportunities in your 40s to go for IVF, either with your own eggs or egg donation?’

Tina underwent IVF treatment in order to conceive.

Tina’s unusually named daughter was dressed in a pink baby-grow and slept right through the interview.

The TV actress was unwell before the arrival of her daughter but baby Flame looked the picture of health in her first public appearance.

Tina finished off her interview on a positive note, saying: ‘I have proved my critics wrong... I’m healthy and happy.’
