After seeing the heartwarming photos on their screen, fans headed straight to the comment section to congratulate Owen and Michelle. One social media user wrote: "Followed ur story from day one, so happy for u both."

Another fan penned: "The best Christmas gift you could both get! Welcome to the world baby girl."

A third said: "Oh my word she's so perfect. Congratulations to you both." Meanwhile a fourth added: "Oh she’s so gorgeous!! Congratulations you two, Michelle you’re a superhero."

Earlier in the day, Owen shared a video on the platform which saw Michelle cradling her daughter while in her hospital bed. The caption of the clip read: "Introducing Jessica Charlotte Amytis Jenkins, born on the 17th December at 11.11pm. She is the most perfect person in the world and we are feeling so very lucky."

In the video clip, Owen also revealed that he gave up on drinking Irn-Bru throughout Michelle's pregnancy but the TV star seemed delighted that he could now drink one of his favorite beverages. Adding to caption, the pair wrote: "P.S. This post is in no way affiliated with @irnbru however I am sure Owen wouldn’t be opposed to any gifting towards celebrating the birth of his daughter @irnbru!"

Owen and Michelle are the second couple from the UK franchise to have gone the distance and welcomed a child. Season six stars Adam and Tayah announced the birth of their daughter in October this year.

The news comes after Owen previously revealed he signed up for MAFS UK while drunk. Sharing his story, Owen disclosed that he was out having a drink with a mate when he saw the ad for the show.

He told The Sun: "While he was out for a cigarette I was scrolling on Instagram waiting for him to come back in. The MAFS advert was the last thing I saw, and I joked, 'Wouldn’t it be funny if I signed up?'

"A few beers later when I was back at home I sent in the application, and the rest is history." The reality star explained.
