Kara Tointon has given birth.
The 37-year-old actress and her fiancé Marius Jensen – who have two-year-old son Frey – welcomed their second child into the world last Friday (08.01.21), with the little one weighing in at 7.25lbs.
She told HELLO! magazine: "Our second bundle of joy arrived on Friday 8th January at 9.46 am weighing 7.25 pounds.
"Couldn’t be more excited to start 2021 with this incredibly cool little man joining our family.
"Thank you to the amazing team at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital for bringing him into the world safely."
The former 'Strictly Come Dancing' champion revealed in October last year that she and Marius were expecting their second child together.
She said at the time: "I think this year has brought so many things in different ways. At the beginning of the year I was due to start a play, and now I am at home in a little cocoon and pregnant.
"We really wanted a sibling for Frey. So we said, 'If it happens, it happens; let's go with the flow,' and it happened much quicker than we expected.
"I did the test in May. We weren't shocked but it was a surprise, and we feel so lucky."
Kara – whose sister is 'Inbetweeners' star Hannah Tointon – admitted she was looking forward to welcoming another baby boy into the world, despite joking she will be "outnumbered".
She said: "Hannah and I have such a close bond, so now I am thinking how lovely for Frey to have a brother.
"I'll be outnumbered with Marius and two boys but bring it on."
