Shelby Tribble has given birth to a baby boy with boyfriend Sam Mucklow.

Sam announced that the 27 year old TOWIE star has welcomed their son in a lengthy post on his Instagram stories on Tuesday evening.

He sweetly called Shelby a "soldier", telling fans that her labour was not straightforward and that she has been in hospital for five days.

Weeks before giving birth, Shelby gushed over becoming a first-time mum, as well as praising all pregnant women.

The star wrote a lengthy message alongside a stunning picture of herself showing off her bare baby bump in a white bra and jeans, which she wore unbuttoned.

Shelby wrote: “I still can’t believe I’m going to be called Mummy, it really is the best feeling in the world and there is no love like it.

“Don’t get me wrong the bigger I’m getting the more uncomfortable I’m feeling and don’t get me started on the horrendous heart burn but I wouldn’t change it for the world because I’ve been growing and nourishing my perfect boy for 8 months now.

“I know I mentioned it before but women are truly remarkable, strong and the rest!!

“The fact our body goes through all these big and sometimes complicated changes to grow another human life amazes me, the way it prepares itself for the birthing of your baby and not forgetting the way your instincts kick in to care, guide, love and protect your little miracle just blows my mind.

“Women are unbelievable. I know sometimes it will be tough but always stay strong Mumma’s because you’ve done amazing so far and will continue to be amazing.”

Shelby and Sam, also 27, shared the sweet news they were set to welcome their first child back in May as the UK was in full lockdown swing.

It brought some happiness for the couple, who first met on TOWIE, following their shock decision to quit the reality show last year to focus on their "fairytale" relationship away from the "pressure and anxiety" of sharing their lives on screen.

Taking to Instagram, brunette beauty Shelby shared a snap of herself and her beau, who was holding an ultrasound picture of their unborn child.

She also shared a second image in which a blossoming baby bump was clear to see and smiling Sam had his arm around her proudly.

They later shared that they were going to have a boy in a sweet clip, opening up a large zipped bag which contained a rail of blue baby clothes, gifts and blue balloons.
