Laura Whitmore has reportedly welcomed her first child with husband Iain Stirling.

Laura and Iain have yet to publicly confirm their new arrival, however, the couple were seen with their baby daughter in photos published by the Daily Mail.

Laura is believed to have given birth in recent days and did not present her BBC radio show as usual on Sunday.

The Bray-born presenter and her husband, a comedian and narrator on Love Island, looked proud and relaxed with their new-born as they went for coffee in London.

Laura and Iain first met in 2016 and started dating about a year later.

The couple got married in Dublin last November and shared their first photo of the wedding on New Year’s Day. Laura then confirmed they were due to have a baby.

Laura previously confirmed that she was expecting a baby girl.

Writing in her new book, ‘No-one Can Change Your Life Except for You’, the ‘Love Island’ presenter says: “There’s a new chapter coming in my life in the form of a baby girl currently growing inside me.

“And that scares the s*it out of me. I once swallowed a fly and was freaked out that there was a live bug inside me. A little live human is a whole new level of freaking out. But I’m excited. Because there is a lot of good in the world, there is a lot of potential and I want to bring up a child knowing that she has her own story to write.”

She adds: “She will be supported and loved but she is the heroine of her own life, no-one else."

The couple suffered a miscarriage in 2018, with Laura penning a deeply personal and moving piece about the experience for Hot Press magazine a year later.

Later, on The Late Late Show, she described how she had felt overwhelmed after sharing her story.

“It took me a long time. I didn't talk about it for like a year or so and I also found out from my doctor that one in three women experience a miscarriage,” she said. “I am sure a lot of miscarriages are not knowing or not telling as well and that really surprised me I didn't know that figure.”
