Feel old yet...?
Very happy times for Tracy Beaker star, Dani Harmer, as it has been announced that she has just welcomed her first child!
The 27-year-old actress gave birth to a baby girl at 5.00pm on Tuesday (28th June) and the joyful news was told to the world the following afternoon.
Dani’s mother, Jill Harmer, told Hello! on Wednesday: ‘Mother and baby are doing well – the baby is beautiful like her mother!’
This is the first child for both Dani and her partner of just over a year, Simon Brough. According to reports, their little one’s name is Avarie-Belle Betsy Brough and weighed 6lbs 9oz.
Both parents were, understandably, very excited before the birth, with Simon tweeting that she was ‘due any day’ just last Thursday (23rd June).
When news of Dani’s pregnancy was first announced in January, some were a little shocked – as she’s best known for her starring role as mischievous foster child Tracy in CBBC drama The Story of Tracy Beaker, people still see her a child, she’s admitted!
Contrary to popular belief, she’s most definitely an adult now – but don’t expect to hear wedding bells any time soon.
In January, Simon told press: ‘Starting a family is something we’ve joked about pretty much from day one. But we don’t want to get married just because we’re having a baby. Dani wants the little one to walk up the aisle with us, so we’ll have to wait a fair few years for that.’
Adorable. Now sends the biggest of congratulations to them both!
