Last week she gave birth to her first child with fiancé Ben. 

In an emotional interview with OK!, she revealed the couple are ‘overwhelmed with love’ following the birth of the child, whose gender is yet to be confirmed. 

Sharing an image of the baby’s tiny hand with the publication she said: ‘And then there were three. Welcome to the world, we are utterly overwhelmed with love’.   

Louisa announced her pregnancy in a heartwarming Mother’s Day post in March and unveiled her bump in a sweet video.

Scored with Stevie Wonder’s classic track As, the screen star’s fun-filled footage showed the card she’d sent to her own mother, which read: ‘Just a little note to say, there’s a baby on the way.’ 

Their announcement video included footage of dad-to-be Ben reading a pregnancy book, while their adorable pet pooch sported a neckerchief, which read: ‘My parents are getting me a human.’ 

However, Louisa’s growing baby bump soon stole the show, when she lifted her floral patterned shirt to show it off in all its burgeoning glory.

Weeks after her baby announcement, the soap star spoke about her pregnancy news on Loose Women.   

Louisa said she was now ‘feeling fine’ after getting through the first trimester, which saw her eat junk food ‘non-stop.’ 

She said: ‘I’m fine, I’m through the hurdle of the first 12 weeks. I feel a lot better now. We found out on Boxing Day. And I was drinking tequila the night before!’   

 ‘I was just non stop eating junk food for 12 weeks. I’d have dinner and then go for a drive-thru straight away afterwards. My appetite went crazy but it’s coming back down now though which is good. ‘

The star also discussed her current soap storyline mirroring her real life, saying: ‘It was a strange time I found out I was pregnant and knew I was going back to film being pregnant.

‘I was more stressed as it was at the forefront of my mind. I told the bosses early on. My character’s endometriosis story was important to me. I didn’t want it to be put on hold. She is diagnosed this week, and that’s where the complications come from.’ 

Louisa and Ben got engaged on her 30th birthday while enjoying a romantic break in the Maldives in the summer of 2019, after a year of dating.

They were forced to cancel their wedding last August due to the Covid pandemic and had pushed the date back to July this year. 

However, Louisa said the pair have now cancelled their wedding because they want to focus on the pregnancy.

She said: ‘We have cancelled it. I said let’s stop trying and now officially it could go ahead but it’s too late now, it’s all gone out of the window!’   

It comes after, Louisa revealed she has left her gown still in the shop due to the uncertainty if she can marry this year.  

Louisa shared a picture of her trying on a bridal dress as she wrote on Instagram: ‘Going to try on wedding dresses feels like a lifetime ago. My mum came to every appointment. 

‘I loved every dress. She chose the winner. (This ISN’T it) My dress is still in the shop as I feel so anxious about collecting it? 

‘Not knowing if I’ll even be wearing it this year? Brides . . How are you feeling? Are you still counting on 2021 for your big day or are 2022 new dates being discussed? (sic)’.
