Chanelle Hayes and her partner Ryan Oates have welcomed a baby boy into the world
Chanelle Hayes has given birth to a baby boy.
The former 'Big Brother' star - who already has six-year-old son Blakely with her former partner Matthew Bates - has announced she and her boyfriend Ryan Oates welcomed their son into the world in the early hours of Tuesday (29.08.17) morning.
Taking to her Twitter account, the 29-year-old television personality said: "Ryan, Blakely and I are absolutely over the moon to announce that the new addition to our little family has arrived safely and in a perfect package on Tuesday 29th August 2017 at 1:34am. #ThreeBecomesFour, (sic)" followed by a family of emojis.
The brunette beauty has had somewhat of a difficult pregnancy as she's been riddled with acute morning sickness and has spent a large amount of time in hospital.
She said earlier this year: "I was really really sick. I was sick all day and all night. I was in hospital on a drip. I've been really really poorly. I've been on drugs for chemotherapy patients.
"I've lost loads of weight. I've lost a lot of weight but baby has everything it needs. I lost about two stone. You can't really tell because i've got this big belly."
Chanelle announced her pregnancy back in March and admitted at the time that her baby news came as a huge surprise because the doctors had previously warned her that she may struggling to conceive because of her weight.
She explained: "I didn't have a period since may last year. It didn't even cross my mind that I was pregnant. I have polycystic ovary syndrome anyway so I've always known about that. I didn't think I was infertile but I was made aware that when I was putting all this weight on that unless my weight is manage, the chances get smaller and smaller to conceive. I wasn't very happy about that."
Chanelle found out she was pregnant when doctors carried out routine blood tests to find out why she wasn't having a period but her boyfriend Ryan didn't believe her when she told him they were having a baby - their first child - together.
She said: "Ryan didn't believe me. He thought I was lying. I'd literally just opened a speeding ticket and the doctors were like you need to come in. My heart dropped."
