"Your brothers, your daddy and I are so in love. Thank you for the most incredible 9 months. Now we cannot wait for the rest of our lives with you."

The TV presenter — who found fame on The X Factor in 2009 — revealed she went to hospital after contractions began to have the baby monitored, but then returned home.

When labour advanced she went on to have her baby daughter at home with the help of the community midwife team and gas and air for pain relief.

She admitted: "Quickly regretted not staying in hospital and getting an epidural."
