Ex On The Beach star Melissa Reeves has given birth to her daughter
Ex On The Beach star Melissa Reeves has given birth to her baby girl, after spending three days in labour.
The reality star, 26, confirmed her daughter’s arrival on Instagram while sharing a snap from her hospital bed of her holding her newborn.
Melissa penned: ’24/05/2020 My world changed forever my baby girl arrived right on her due date words can’t describe how in love with this little [angel] I am.
‘I feel so happy and blessed.’
Sharing details of the birth, Melissa revealed that she had spent three days in labour and eventually gave birth via a C-section.
She added: ‘I was in labour for 3 days, then we had to opt for a C section because it turns out she is one big baby, she’s 8lb 11!!’
Prior to giving birth, Melissa had been keeping fans updated and revealed via her Instagram story that while she was showing signs of labour, her waters hadn’t broken and doctors performed a sweep on her – a move intended to bring on labour – to speed things up.
It’s claimed that Melissa shares her newborn daughter with footballer Danny Simpson, 33, following a brief romance.
A friend of the reality star allegedly confirmed Danny as the father to MailOnline, with sources telling The Sun that the sports star has promised to support Melissa ‘financially and emotionally’, with plans for the pair to co-parent.
He is already dad to daughter Skye, eight, who he shares with ex-girlfriend Stephanie.
Neither Melissa or Danny have publicly confirmed that he is the father.
Metro.co.uk has reached out to reps for Melissa and Danny.
Melissa first announced her pregnancy in March with a snap of her debuting her baby bump in a leopard print bikini. She captioned her post: ‘Mini me coming summer 2020.’
