"I’ve finally gotten round to reading all of them and am bowled over by everyone’s kindness. It means the world. Huge love to you all from the 3 of us!"

The message comes after the pair shared the first photo of their child the day before.

Taking to her official Instagram page, Sheridan and Jamie shared a picture of their baby's tiny hand and ear with the caption: "Our little man had arrived! We are both completely overwhelmed with love."

Jamie and Sheridan are believed to be at their shared home in North London where the pair have lived since the beginning of their romance.

30-year-old insurance broker, Jamie, proposed to Sheridan with a £10,000 ring last year, three months after meeting on dating app Tinder.

The Gavin and Stacey star has previously said she felt "lucky" to be pregnant during the coronavirus pandemic as it has given Jamie and her something to focus on during such a strange time.

Congratulations Sheridan and Jamie!
