Louisa Lytton has welcomed her first child, OK! can exclusively reveal.
Announcing the arrival of herself and her fiancé Ben Bhanvra’s little one, the EastEnders actress shared the first adorable snap and said the pair are "utterly overwhelmed with love".
Louisa exclusively told OK! of herself and Ben becoming parents to their new arrival: "And then there were three. Welcome to the world, we are utterly overwhelmed with love".
The cute picture sees Louisa’s tot clutching onto her thumb while her hand rests in Ben’s.
The 32 year old announced she was expecting back in March on Instagram with a sweet Mother’s Day post and clip alongside Ben.
In the clip, posted on the actress’ page, Louisa opens a card which says: “Just a little note to say…”
It then reads on the inside: “There’s a baby on the way!”
The rest of the video shows a montage of clips, including a sweet video of Louisa and Ben standing together as she shows off her blossoming bump.
Meanwhile, the couple’s cockapoo pup, Riley, is seen wearing a handkerchief tied around its neck, which reads: “My parents are getting me a human”.
In the video, Ben is seen reading a pregnancy book and Louisa later films the cards and gifts she’s received on Mother’s Day.
Louisa, who plays Ruby Allen in the BBC One soap, and Ben were due to tie the knot last year, but with the coronavirus pandemic leaving things uncertain, the couple decided to postpone their big day until the summer of 2021.
However, earlier this year the pair then discovered they were expecting, and Louisa exclusively told OK! they have decided to cancel their wedding altogether so they could channel their energy into the baby.
Alongside an exclusive shoot showing off her bump, she told us: “We’ve cancelled the wedding altogether now. We’ve decided to scrap the whole thing and start again with our plans.
“We’re going to have the baby and focus on that and then get married once we’re ready.

"This last year has put everything into perspective and there are bigger things going on in the world.”
She continued: “Now with the baby, it will be such a different day and it’s just amazing.
"I was at my mum and dad’s wedding so it’s nice that our baby will now be doing the same.”
