Kellie Bright has welcomed her third child with husband Paul Stocker, OK! can exclusively reveal.
Sharing the happy news, the 45 year old told us: "We're thrilled to announce the safe arrival of the latest addition to our family. Mum and baby are doing well."
EastEnders star Kellie and Paul are already parents to sons Freddy, nine, and Gene, four.
The pair previously opened up on the IVF journey to conceive their new arrival – after successfully using it to conceive Gene.
Having frozen three embryos, the couple decided at the end of 2019 to try for a third baby.
In September last year they began their IVF journey but the first two embryos didn't work.
Kellie told OK! when announcing her pregnancy back in March: "So this baby inside me now was the last one we had – the last chance of a pregnancy, because at 44 we were not going through IVF again. I believe it was meant to be."
However, the pregnancy wasn't without its struggles, as actress Kellie began bleeding.
Recalling the moment, she told OK!: "With the third one, I didn’t think that had worked either because I had a bleed two days before I was due to take the pregnancy test.
"It was significant enough for me to be in floods of tears with my husband cradling me."

"It stopped quite suddenly," continues Kellie. "So I still did the test, even though in my heart I thought it hadn’t worked. So when it said 'pregnant' I almost fell to the floor."
Kellie continued: "I was so shocked and thrilled, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I ran downstairs to Paul.
"I just stood crying – really crying – and he couldn’t understand a word I was saying! It took my breath away.
"I knew it was my last chance, so the fact it was a positive was so unbelievably wonderful. A truly wonderful, crazy life moment."
