"Biggest thanks to the Lewisham Poppie Homebirth team, Sue, Flo & Lynn, lovely Mary from the labour ward at Lewisham Hospital, Aimee, Anna, dear Gowri @gentlebirthmethod and of course my @samburrowspt for the 5am sideways walks up a hill, the slow dances, the hardcore back rubs and the constant encouragement and confidence you had in me.

"It took a village of mighty women (and Sam) to get this little man here and I'm so so grateful.

"We are so very lucky to have the NHS and the special people that work there."

Melanie Chisholm

Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm, Sam Smith and Lily Allen were among those sending their congratulations.

Chisholm wrote: "Wonderful news! congratulations! Yeahhhhhh!!"

Following the birth, Ware celebrated by eating a burger in bed, joking the meal was an "absolute touch".

She and her personal trainer partner, who she married in 2014, are already parents to a daughter, born in 2016, and a son, born in 2019.
