Harry Styles’ older sister Gemma has announced that she has given birth to her first child following a secret pregnancy.

The writer and podcaster, 33, took to Instagram to share the happy news on Friday along with pictures of her and partner Michal Miynowski with their newborn daughter.

She captioned her post: “Hello from maternity leave! Took some time off to ensure the safe arrival of our baby girl, who is adored by her whole family.

“I know that this news can be difficult for many people and I'm sending you lots of love.”

Gemma and Michal have been together since 2015. One of their earliest dates was watching her younger brother Harry, 30, perform with his former boyband One Direction.

During the gig at the Apple Music Festival, Harry told the crowd: “I'm sorry if I seem distracted. My sister's here on a date, and I'm trying to keep an eye on it.”

His ex-bandmate Liam Payne then jokingly added: “We're watching you!”

Harry is extremely close to his sibling and the new family member means that he has been promoted to uncle.

While the Watermelon Sugar hitmaker has yet to comment on his exciting new role, his fans were absolutely thrilled for both of them and rushed to offer their well-wishes in the comments section.

“Congratulations Gemma! Love to you and your family,” wrote one person.

“Obsessed with this!! Congrats you wonderful lady,” penned another, following by two heart emojis.

“Harry is a girl uncle!” declared a third excitedly. “Let that sit. Oh my god baby girl!”

Gemma later took to Instagram Stories to say “thank you for the love”.
