Former TOWIE star Billie Faiers has given birth
Congratulations are in order for Billie Faiers and her fiancé Greg Shepherd who have welcomed their second child into the world.
The mum-of-two previously revealed she was surprised at her scan when she found out she was due to have a little boy. Reliving the experience, she said: "We could stop laughing during the scan, I said to the sonographer: 'No! Are you sure? Can you check again?'
"She checked a few times so it's definitely a boy. We can't stop smiling," she told OK! magazine.
And now the reality star has given birth to her "truly perfect" son. Announcing the news on Instagram, she wrote: "Welcome to the world our beautiful baby boy. We love you more than words can describe, you are truly perfect in every way… 07/03/17."

The happy couple haven't revealed what their little one is called yet, although in the past Billie hinted at baby names: "We want to see him first but we love traditional names like Edward and George," she told the Mail Online.
Billie and Greg are already parents to their two-year-old daughter Nellie and have previously mentioned that their daughter would love to have a little brother who is exactly like her first cousin baby Paul.

The former TOWIE star revealed: "I say to her do you want a baby brother or baby sister and she says: 'I want a baby Paul!'"
Billies former co-star and friend Ferne McCann has congratulated the pair on Twitter. She wrote: "I wanted 2 say a massive congrats to my gorgeous friends @Gregshepherd_ & @BillieFaiers on the birth of their baby boy. I am so happy for u"
Towie fans were left devastated last year when Billie quit the show. An ITV spokesperson said at the time: ""Billie has recently made us aware that she would like to prioritise family life and little Nelly for the rest of the year.
"We are in full support of this decision and will continue discussing with her how best to move forwards.
"Billie is a much loved and valued member of the TOWIE team and we are happy she wants to continue working with us."
Congrats to the Faiers family!
