Congratulations are in order this morning, with the announcement that actress Natalie Cassidy has become a mother for the second time.
The Eastenders star and her fiancé, Marc Humphreys, have welcomed a daughter into the world – Joanie Elizabeth.
Natalie, 33, announced the wonderful news via social media, sharing a gorgeous picture from her hospital bed.
Underneath the shot of herself, Marc and five-year-old daughter Eliza gazing at the newborn, Natalie wrote: “Marc and I introduce Joanie Elizabeth Cassidy-Humphreys…We are all so in love!”
Eliza is, of course, Natalie’s daughter with former partner Adam Cottrell.
Natalie and Marc shared their lovely pregnancy news back in February, just four months after they confirmed their engagement.
The actress has endured her fair share of drama over the past few years, particularly during her relationship with Cottrell. However, she recently admitted to being happier than ever in her life and career.
In a previous interview, Natalie said: “I am the most content I’ve ever been. It’s brilliant. I’m in a lovely place right now.”
We are delighted for her and her family.
