EMMERDALE'S Michelle Hardwick has given birth to a baby boy with producer wife Kate Brooks.

The 44-year-old star made the announcement with a sweet Instagram post this evening.

In the first black and white snap, Michelle is beaming in her hospital bed with the little boy snuggled beside her wrapped in a towel and wearing a knitted hat.

The second photo is in colour, with the little one under a rainbow blanket as Michelle gazes down adoringly at him.

The actress captioned the post: "On Friday 9th October, this handsome little chap entered the world.

"Edward 'Teddy' Peter Brooks we are so in love with you 💙 #ourlittleTeddyboy"

The new mum, who plays Vanessa Woodfield in Emmerdale, shares a stunning home with wife Kate and their dog Fred, after they moved in together two years ago.

The couple married a year ago at Graceland when they eloped to America.

Michelle recently posted a throwback snap from the big day alongside a picture of her growing bump, writing at the time: "What a difference a year makes!

"Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary to my soulmate, best friend and beautiful wife. Here’s to the next chapter Brooksy. We love you so much #fredlooksthrilled #countingdowntheweeks."

She and Kate announced that they were expecting their first child together in April.

The loved-up pair shared a photo of Michelle's bump and their beloved pooch, simply adding: "Fred's big brother duties commence in October #BabyBrooks."

Michelle has played Vanessa in Emmerdale since 2012, while Kate is a producer on the soap.
