“He’s here”

Irish model Kelly Horrigan has shared the good news that she has given birth to her first child.

The Kildare gal welcomed a baby boy with her longterm partner Steve Moore and shared the couple’s latest addition on Instagram.

Sharing the post on social media, the new mum opted for a black and white picture of her snuggled up to her newborn as she was in hospital.

Kelly captioned the post: “He’s here the absolute best day of our lives. I couldn’t love you any more.”

Flooding the comments section, other famous Irish names came running to congratulate the model on her new arrival, with influencer Rosie Connolly writing: “Ahhh huge congratulations.”

Lisa Jordan commented: “Oh my goodness I am thrilled for you xxxxxx.”

Joanna Cooper said: “Ahh congratulations.”

While James Patrice wrote: “Congraaaaats Kelly.”

Kelly announced she was expecting her first child back in April as she shared a picture of her and her growing baby bump, writing: “Four months growing our little love we can’t wait to meet you.”

Kelly is typically very shy when it comes to posting about her partner Steve, rarely sharing pictures of him on social media. Recently, however, she confirmed that the two have been together for nine years.

Kelly has made herself a huge name in the modelling industry in Ireland over the last number of years, being the face of some huge campaigns and working with major fashion and beauty brands like Charlotte Tilbury.
