In an accompanying caption, Hollie confirmed her baby now “looks healthy” as she thanked the medical staff at Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow.

She admitted it had been “very scary and emotional” for a few weeks but gushed about how much she loves her baby boy, whose name has not yet been revealed.

Hollie wrote: “At 28 weeks, 12 weeks early, our beautiful baby boy was born on 2/11/23 at 6.08am weighing 2.4 pounds.”

“Certainly surprised us but cannot thank @princessalexandranhs midwives, nurses, doctors and everyone involved enough for making such a difficult time that little bit easier. They really were amazing.

“The last two weeks have been manic to say the least and very scary and emotional but all we can hope for is that our ray of sunshine just keeps getting better and stronger to come home for the next few months please God.

“Our little boy looks healthy and we just couldn’t love him anymore.

“To our family, friends and loved ones who have been by our side, you know you mean the world to us and we can’t wait for you to meet him.
