Jessie Ware has announced the birth of her first child, a baby girl that arrived on Monday 5th September.
The 31-year-old singer and songwriter took to social media to announce the exciting news of her arrival and thanked the NHS and her midwife for supporting her through the birth.
Jessie tweeted a sweet message, four days after the birth, alerting fans and followers to the arrival of her new baby. She spoke of her ‘beautiful baby girl’ and personally thanked her midwife Emilio for her help.
Jessie wrote, ‘We had a beautiful baby girl on Monday. Just want to give a huge ❤️ to our midwife, Emilio at UCLH for helping us through it! Love the NHS X’ in a tweet that has had over 2k likes.
The singer welcomed her baby girl with childhood sweetheart Sam Burrows at the University College London Hospital. The pair tied the knot two years ago on the Greek island Skopelos, waiting just over a year before becoming pregnant.
Fans and followers are delighted for the musician, flooding her tweet with comments of congratulations.
One Twitter user wrote, ‘congrats Jessie!! So so happy for you 💗’ and another, ‘congratulations!! ❤️❤️❤️ You deserve all the happiness lovely lady!’.
Jessie’s celebrity pals were also keen to wish her congratulations with DJ and presenter Nick Grimshaw writing, ‘ahhhhh congratulations Jessie xxx 💕’ and BBC Music sharing a collection of sweet emojis, ‘💞 💞 💞 👏’.
Even Jessie’s midwife responded to her tweet, thanking her for the shout out and calling the little girl a ‘princess’ writing, ‘I am really happy that you mentioned me. You made my day! It was my pleasure to meet you, Sam and welcome the princess :-)’.
Jessie has used social media to keep followers updated on her pregnancy throughout, announcing her baby news in April with an Instagram post that read, ‘Dropping this year, and it’s not the album X.’
