Former 'EastEnders' star Belinda Owusu has confirmed she has given birth, just weeks after hinting she had become a mum
Belinda Owusu has confirmed she has given birth.
The former 'EastEnders' actress recently hinted she had welcomed her first child into the world as the 31-year-old star admitted she was "off being a mummy" after bidding farewell to 'Holby City', and she has now shared her first picture of her little one.
She took to her Instagram Stories to point out her baby's adorable "little chunky arm" and admitted she has been in "sleep deprived heaven".
Last month, Belinda bowed out of 'Holby' as her character Nicky McKendrick.
Nicky decided to end her pregnancy after discovering her boyfriend Cameron Dunn (Nic Jackman) was a serial killer, with their whole relationship being a lie.
However, a scare with the baby made her re-evaluate her plan and instead she decided to leave and raise her child on her own.
After her character's final scenes aired, the BBC show's official Twitter account wrote: "I have something in my eye. We'll miss you Dr McKendrick @therealowusu #HolbyCity HR (sic)"
Belinda replied: "Aww you guys.. miss you all... The Holby family is like no other! Thank you to everyone for your lovely comments.
"I had the best time playing Nicky, but now I’m off being a mummy (yep- the bump was real). Bye for now x (Sic)"
The star had played Nicky since 2017 and also portrayed the role in 'Casualty' in 2019.
In February, Belinda – who played Libby Fox in 'EastEnders' between 2006 and 2010 – took to Instagram to reveal she was 40 weeks pregnant.
Posting a picture of her bump, she wrote: “Ready when you are, kid #40weeks (sic)"
