Lexi is the couple’s second child and a younger sister to the couple’s three-year-old son, Zander.

Her post continued, “Mum is very glad she decided to come out over 2 weeks early as she weighed in at 4.06kg (8’15”) so didn’t need any more cooking!”

Finally, the television presenter shared, “Dad, @theherdonline participated in delivery & is besotted whilst Zander is yet to meet his little sister but ‘doesn’t want to talk about it anymore’ apparently! All doing very well & enjoying our little blissful bubble!”

Rooney announced her pregnancy in late December, sharing a photo of herself alongside Zander, who was trying to drill at her stomach.
