Kelvin Fletcher baby news
Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher has welcomed his first child with wife Liz Marland.

The couple announced the arrival of their beautiful new daughter on Kelvin's Twitter page, with the soap stay posting: 'Our hearts are filled with love. She's the most beautiful little thing I've ever seen'

His wife Liz also revealed the news, sharing a picture of a bouquet of pink flowers on her Instagram page. She captioned the photo: 'Everything pink for the little cherub #bestfeeling in the world!'

The little one's arrival comes as great news to the couple, who announced their pregnancy last Christmas. Kelvin revealed to OK! magazine that Liz actually became pregnant on their wedding night in November.

He said: 'We're pretty sure Liz fell pregnant on our wedding night. We then flew to Rome for three nights. Little did we know, there were three of us on our honeymoon!'

The new dad must be over the moon as he added: 'The day I found out Liz was pregnant and our wedding day were the most amazing days of my life.'

However, Kelvin and Liz decided to keep the sex of the baby a secret, so the arrival of a daughter will have been a huge surprise to the couple as well as friends and family.

Liz appeared on Loose Women just three weeks before giving birth, saying she's been keeping Kelvin close by in case the time comes. She told the panel:
'I've become Kelvin's side-kick in case anything happens. I'm just following him around!'

The couple married last November after dating for nine years. They decided they wanted to wait until they were in their 30s to start a family so they could enjoy their twenties together as a couple.

We're used to seeing Kelvin as Andy Sudgen in Emmerdale, but he recently left the show after appearing in the soap for 20 years. But it seems to have come at a good time, as he'll be settling into his role as a dad instead!

Congratulations to the new parents!
