Katie Piper Gives Birth To Her Baby Girl

TV presenter Katie Piper has confirmed on Twitter that she’s given birth to a baby girl

TV presenter and campaigner Katie Piper gave birth to a baby girl early this morning – her first child with partner James.

The 30 year old took to Twitter today to reveal the news, and also unveiled her daughter’s name – Belle Elizabeth.

She wrote, ‘I am delighted to tell you that our daughter Belle Elizabeth was born today! Overwhelmed with happiness. We can’t wait to get to know her!’

Her little girl weighed 7lb 1oz and was born by Caesarean.

‘I am so overwhelmed with happiness,’ Katie told Hello!. ‘I literally can't stop looking at her, she's just beautiful. After all the operations I've had, this one has given me my daughter. It's just the most special feeling in the world’

Katie’s updated her Twitter feed throughout her pregnancy – with everything from how her baby’s getting on (‘This Baby is getting so strong it nearly pushes my hand off when I rest it on the bump! No more spinach for you missy!’) to how she’s finding life as a mum-to-be (‘Constantly hungry! Have just brought a sandwich so I will have something to eat before dinner!!! Third trimester sending me crazy!’).

This post to announce her baby’s arrival came after Katie tweeted a Turkish restaurant in Essex last night to thank them for a wonderful evening there – including a note that ‘the bump loved the food as much as me!’

Congratulations Katie and James!
