The TV star who shares sons Tyde, 16, and Evan, 14, with her ex-husband, had kept her pregnancy a secret, revealing she had suffered a number of miscarriages in recent years.
In the caption, she gushed over new daughter Etta-Blue, writing: “I've waited 10 years to finally hold you in my arms.
“With every miscarriage I tried to learn to be grateful and accepting of what I had.”
“I tried to dampen my desire to be a mother to another child, to find peace in my natural infertility and yet it felt so unnatural all in the same moment.
“I have spent the last 9 months hiding my pregnancy, travelling the country with my theatre show, filming my YouTube crime content, and working on as many projects as possible in a bid to distract myself from the growing hope and possibility that this time you may just become a reality, and that this time things will end in the sweetness of joy, instead of the agony of loss.”
She added: “For the past 38 weeks you have grown quietly, you have allowed me a symptomless and easy pregnancy, and whilst your arrival was by far the most dramatic, I feel a blindsiding giddy glee knowing you finally decided to announce your presence in a way that none of us could ignore.
“Your beauty is breathtaking, your company perfect, your presence utterly profound, and whilst I grieve the years I wish we could have had together, I know that you are meant to be mine right now, and not a minute sooner.
“Etta-Blue, you have healed more than you'll ever know, and reminded me of the wonder of being, even in the face of loss and suffering.
