27-year-old Ferne McCann gave birth to her first child yesterday, a daughter. The little bundle of joy arrived a week early.


The Only Way Is Essex star shared the news via Instagram, telling her 1.8M followers, "Welcome to the world my darling. Didn’t expect to see you a week early. I’m so in love & bursting with pride. It’s a girl."


Arthur Collins, the child's father and Ferne's ex, is standing trial for his part in an acid attack in a London nightclub this past April.



Fans had words of love and support for the I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! star.


"Congratulations and welcome to the crazy, tiring, stressful, amazingly awesome land of parenthood! Welcome to the world baby girl," one follower said on Instagram.


Another added, "Massive congratulations, it’s the best thing in the world. Enjoy every minute."


Congrats to Ferne and her growing family!
