Emmerdale's Hayley Tamaddon has given birth to her first child

Congratulations!

Former Emmerdale and Coronation Street actress Hayley Tamaddon just announced some very exciting news to her fans today via social media.

The 42-year-old delighted her followers by revealing that she has just given birth to her first child and we couldn't be more made up for her.

The new mum shared a beautiful photograph of her holding her newborn baby boy's hand with the caption;

"He’s here. He’s incredible. And we are besotted."

She wasn't the only one besotted as friends and fans were quick to congratulate the popular soap star on her bouncing baby boy,

"Welcome to the best club in the world. Congratulations."

"Massive congratulations Hayley! Thrilled for you both."

Others left messages of a more comical effect including EastEnders actor Shane Richie who had just one question to ask.

Earlier in the year, Tamaddon said she took 18 pregnancy tests to confirm the news after years of believing she could not conceive.

We're so excited for Hayley and wish her all the best with her adorable new addition to her family.
