Zoe Hardman welcomed her daughter with her boyfriend Paul Doran-James earlier this week
Zoe Hardman has given birth to a baby girl.
The 33-year-old TV presenter welcomed her little girl - known at the moment as 'Little L' - into the world with her rugby playing boyfriend Paul Doran-Jones on Monday (19.06.19) but she's yet to announce the tot's name.
Taking to his Instagram account on Friday (23.09.16), Zoe uploaded a photograph of her newborn's tiny fingers alongside the caption: "On Monday evening our beautiful little girl arrived into the world... now I know what perfection is. We love u so much Little L @PaulDoranJones" (sic).
The former 'Take Me Out: The Gossip' presenter was delighted when she found out she was expecting a baby earlier this year as she was initially concerned she wouldn't be able to fall pregnant naturally because her sister went through early menopause at the age of just 34.
She said recently: "I have a very low AMH rate, which is anti-mullerian hormone, one of the markers for low ovarian reserves. So basically I don't have many eggs left."
And, although they've only been dating just over a year, Zoe is thrilled she can finally start her family with her beau.
She said: I am in safe hands with this one. He's a good egg."
Meanwhile, this may be the first child for Zoe but Paul has already had plenty of practice when it comes to changing nappies and dealing with sleepless nights as he also has three-year-old daughter Isla from a previous relationship.
He said: "My daughter's the best thing that's happened to me - we're so close. One of the amazing things about Zoe is how close she is with Isla, too. Seeing Zoe around my daughter just confirmed everything for me."
