Congratulations to Maddy Smedley, star in The Traitors, who has given birth to her own Faithful.
In May, the reality personality revealed that she and her partner Tom were expecting their first child.
And their bundle of joy has finally arrived, with Maddy confirming the birth of a baby girl called Shelby Rae.
The Hollyoaks actress took to social media with the wonderful announcement, sharing a series of photographs of her infant seconds after she arrived.
Shelby couldn’t have looked sweeter with a purple crocheted hat, proving herself to be quite the fashion star.
Maddy subsequently released a video of herself in her hospital bed, cuddling up to the babbling bubba.
She added in her caption: ‘Shelby Rae our little girl – feel so lucky – 23.09.23 – 6lb 3 🎈💫’
Maddy received a flood of compliments, even from her fellow Traitors and Faithfuls.

Alyssa Chan commented a crying emoji with two pink hearts.
Rayan Rachedi wrote: ‘im so happy for you, congratulations ❤️❤️ ‘
‘Maddy! So so chuffed for you all! So beautiful! Can’t wait to meet her! All the love to you three 💕💕’, added Coronation Street actress Alexandra Mardell.
Maddy released a tearful video of herself notifying her closest friends and family about her pregnancy news in the spring.
‘We can’t wait to meet you! Love you so much already’, she wrote to her then unborn baby.
Maddy captivated the nation over a year ago when she participated in the first season of Claudia Winkleman’s new reality TV programme.
Millions tuned in to witness a bunch of strangers battle for a share of over £100,000 in demanding feats and mind-bending games in The Traitors.
Despite ultimate Traitor Wilf blagging his way to the final unnoticed, it was the Faithfuls who won, with Aaron Evans, Meryl Williams, and Hannah Byczkowski claiming the prize.
Maddy, who had previously starred in one episode of EastEnders and Casualty, became known as Maddy Marple because to her investigative work and hypotheses, which spawned online memes that are still popular today with her roundtable finger-pointing.
Maddy has earned a part in Hollyoaks following the huge success of The Traitors, which has been renewed for a second season.
She portrays talent agent Faye Fuller, whose name is a brilliant play on words referencing her time on Traitors.
