The Only Way is Essex star Mario Falcone has welcomed a baby girl with his wife Becky Miesner.
Towie legend Mario made the sweet announcement on Tuesday, along with a photo of the family gathered around the new arrival.
The doting dad wrote: ‘The Falcone family welcomed a beautiful little girl into the world on 29/05/23 at 10.19am. She is perfect.’
He also revealed the baby girl’s sweet and unique name – Cali Roux Falcone.
Mario, 34, and Becky, 33 are already parents to five-year-old son Parker Jax, who they welcomed in 2018.
The sweet snap of the family sees Becky cuddling her newborn daughter in a hospital bed, while Jax, also snuggled up in the bed, looks the picture of proud big brother.
The happy couple have been together since 2016, becoming engaged the following year.
They were married last year in a lavish ceremony in Sorrento, where Mario’s family are from.
Their new arrival comes after Mario opened up on their struggles to conceive their second childon the Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast.
He revealed the couple had felt ‘added pressure’ at the time as they worried they were letting their son down by not giving him a sibling.
Mario explained on Giovanna Fletcher’s podcast last December: ‘When we were trying for baby two, with this added pressure we felt like we were letting Parker down, that he was so ready for a sibling when he’s around his cousins and then comes home and says “Why haven’t I got a brother or a sister?”
‘And that kills you, it literally kills you inside because you’re like, “I can give you anything you want as my son, but this is the one thing I actually can’t give you.”’
During their first round of IVF, Becky suffered a miscarriage at around eight weeks, which Mario said was ‘probably the hardest thing I think that we’ve had to deal with in our relationship.’
‘We got really excited about telling our families at Christmas – we had these little cards made that unfortunately came the next day.’
After taking some time off from trying to conceive so that they could enjoy their wedding over the summer, the couple tried IVF again, with the third time being successful.
