Jacqueline Jossa has given birth to her second baby girl – just weeks after husband of 11 months Dan Osborne walked out on her, and exactly a day after their first wedding anniversary.
The ex-EastEnders star, 25, confirmed the happy news to a newspaper but is yet to announce it online.
The little one arrived early this morning, said the Sun.
But proud dad Dan nearly missed the whole experience, as he’d been on a stag do in Las Vegas last week, only arriving back home on Thursday.

He’d been spotted cosying up to a bevy of bikini-clad lovelies at a Vegas pool party, where he and a group of lads were celebrating their friends’ impending nuptials.
"There were plenty of girls eager to join the stag party at their private cabana at the Daylight Beach Club held at the Mandalay Bay hotel," a source told the Sun.
"Dan was seen chatting to various women, holding their hands and putting his arms around them, including one lady in a white bathing suit.
"The group of girls clearly enjoyed the boys’ company as when the beach club came to an end they were seen leaving with them on their party bus."
But Jac shrugged off the reports with just days to go before she reached full term in her pregnancy – although she did remove her wedding rings for the first time since their split.
Happily, Dan returned to the marital home just a few days before she went into labour and will be staying with her for a while to enjoy the newborn stage.
Jac and Dan’s new arrival, whose name is yet to be announced, will join Dan’s four-year-old son Teddy from his previous relationship with Megan Tomlin and their three-year-old daughter Ella.
It’s believed Dan will be staying with Jac and Ella after leaving his mate’s house, where he’s been staying in the wake of their split.
The pair married in June 2017, but in May 2018 announced they were separating.
In a searingly honest interview, Dan said it was time to put himself first and focus on his own happiness after feeling trapped in their "unhappy" marriage.
"I left because we were arguing and it is such a waste of energy," he told Daily Star Sunday.
"The way I look at life is every day spent unhappy is a wasted day, and we were both having a lot of unhappy days. I still obviously care for Jacqueline but if we can’t make each other happy then we shouldn’t stay together. Life is too short."
Referring to the dramatic end to his relationship with Megan, which culminated in him getting fired from TOWIE over audio recordings of him threatening her, he said: "I went through hell with my ex.
"After that, the most important thing for me is to be happy."
And he vowed to put himself first, revealing he’d rather go out with his mates than stay at home with his wife and children in a toxic atmosphere.
"We argue at home so I go out because I don’t want to be home arguing when I can be enjoying myself with mates," the reality star added.
"I will move back to help before the birth and with the baby, but I don’t know after that. The main priority is the kids."
But, weeks later, Jacqueline hinted that their split had been put on hold.
"We’ve been through a rough period but right now we’re getting on well.
"Neither of us knows what’s going on at the moment but we’re spending time together and seeing how things go," she told OK! magazine.
Since their split, Dan and Jacqueline have been seen spending time together with Teddy and Ella – with Jac still wearing her wedding ring in spite of their separate living situations.
A pal of hers told Closer magazine that Jac was left hurt by Dan’s interview.
"Jacqueline is confused about why Dan would speak out like this and not talk things through with her first. But she still loves him and is about to have another child, so the last thing she wants is for things to be acrimonious," said the source.
"She knows they’re both hurting and angry, but she hopes once the baby arrives it’ll give them more of a reason to fight for their relationship."
The insider continued: "Jacqueline’s a strong, proud person and she’s not afraid of being a single mum, but that isn’t what she wants.
"She and Dan are speaking every day but she’s not ready to sweep everything under the carpet. She thinks they need to take their time, but is hopeful they can be a family again."
