Kara Tointon has reportedly given birth to her first child.
The former EastEnders actress is believed to have welcomed a baby boy last week.
"Kara gave birth on Thursday to a little baby boy," a source told The Sun.
A family member told the website she and her fiancé Marius Janeson are both ‘very happy’.
Kara confirmed she was expecting in October, when she described motherhood as the ‘biggest life changing moment’.
"It’s an incredible, time. It’s the biggest life changing moment when you have this little human being coming into your life that you are yet to meet. I can’t wait for motherhood and all the challenges it will bring," she told Hello! magazine.

She first sparked pregnancy speculation in August when she cradled her stomach on the red carpet at The Festival premiere.
In a double whammy of happy news, it turns out she also got secretly engaged in March after Marius popped the question with a vintage ruby and diamond Bavarian engagement ring.
"I had planned for a big proposal on the beach in India on holiday but I am not very good at keeping secrets. I’m someone who gives people their Christmas presents a week early… and so instead it just happened here at home, one Sunday morning, the week before we went away," chiropractor Marcus said.

Kara, 35, recalled, "We were having a lie-in and I had no idea he was planning to propose. It was so perfect as I am not someone who likes big moments, and it was just very Marius – He says it as he feels it. It was very lovely, very relaxed.’
The actress previously dated EastEnders co-star Joe Swash for two years until 2010, followed by professional dancer Artem Chigvintsev or four years after winning Strictly Come Dancing together in late 2010.
