Former TOWIE star Amy Childs has welcomed a beautiful baby boy.


The 27-year-old announced the good news on Instagram, posting a picture of his cute little baby head snuggled up in blue blankets.


She captioned the snap, ''my beautiful son. Welcome to the world darling .... Born Saturday 1st September 4.12am.''


Amy, who is already mum to one-year-old daughter Polly, revealed her pregnancy in April, however she refused to divulge who the father was.

However, her friend Chloe Sims let slip to a newspaper that the man was in fact someone who used to live next door to her cousins Frankie and Joey Essex.


It is believed that Amy started dating the Essex businessman, whose name is Ritchie, a year ago following her June 2017 split from Polly's dad Bradley Wright.


She told OK! magazine that, “me and my partner are over the moon about having a baby, but he’s not in the least bit interested in being in the public eye, which is so nice and refreshing.''


“We're extremely happy and can’t wait to welcome a brother or sister for Polly.”

After she made the announcement about the birth on Instagram, her followers were quick to congratulate her.

One wrote, ''ah he's so beautiful, congratulations to you both'' while another said, ''aww look at all his hair'' followed by the love heart eyes emoji.
Huge congratulations to Amy - we're sure Polly is delighted to be a big sister!
