The Strictly: It Takes Two co-host concluded her brief update by writing: “We are both doing well.”

Earlier this week, Fleur took to social media to reveal she had given birth to Nova at home. The singer had initially kept the majority of her pregnancy a secret, only choosing to confirm her baby news on New Year’s Day.

“And just like that, our baby girl, Nova, is here!! Our daughter entered the world via squat position into the arms of my Husband and I on our living room floor!” she exclaimed at the time.

“One day I will share my birth story with you (what a RIDE!), but for now, we are resting and doing well. So thankful to the amazing midwives who were by my side, my birthing partners (my auntie Tina and my Husband) and all of our family who have been helping out and showering us with love. It really does take a village!” she continued.

Confirming her daughter’s birth date, Fleur added: “So grateful to God for this blessing. Our little Nova was born on the 22nd March and it feels like she’s always been here.”
