The Essex girl is already smitten with Jac and Dan's newborn

It looks like Jacqueline Jossa and Dan Osborne‘s daughter Ella is VERY popular.

Despite being just 10 days old, the little girl has already made some VIP pals. One celeb who’s particularly smitten is Dan‘s TOWIE co-star Danielle Armstrong.

Danielle, 26, has shared a snap online of herself cuddling the adorable bubba. Nawww.

In the photo, Dani gazes lovingly at Ella as she cradles her in her arms. While the newborn’s face can’t be seen, her mop of dark hair is visible and she happily sucks her thumb.

It seems the two have already formed a close bond!

Danielle captioned the shot: ‘Loved having cuddles yesterday with beautiful baby girl Ella. So happy for @DannyO @jacquelineMjoss #BabyEllapic.’

Teeny Ella is likely to meet more of the TOWIE crew in the near future. Dan, 23, has revealed that she’s expected to have a cameo on the show.

‘They want to get her on there as soon as they can, as everyone’s excited to meet her. They’ve all got in touch. They’ve all Tweeted to congratulate us,’ said Dan.

EastEnders actress Jacqueline, 22, added: ‘I can’t wait for everyone to meet her, I just want to show her off!’

We wonder if she’ll become pals with Billie Faiers‘ seven-month-old daughter Nelly?!

Jacqueline has been on maternity leave from her ‘Enders role as Lauren Branning since December and was seen emotionally leaving the Square in last night’s episode.

Lauren and on-screen love Peter Beale – played by Ben Hardy – decided to swap Walford for the rather more exotic climes of New Zealand.

Coincidentally, the fictional couple are also expecting a child.

Despite Jacqueline‘s departure from the soap, her castmates are just as excited about Ella‘s arrival as the TOWIE lot.

‘The whole cast have sent flowers and I’ve spoken to Jo Joyner, who plays my mum, briefly to Ben and a few people who work behind the scenes,’ she says.

‘I’m hoping to see them really soon.’
