Sian and her fiancé Jake Beckett welcomed Ruby, their first child, in June. Sian has since said that becoming a mother was ‘the best thing she’s ever done’.

While the Capital Radio star has yet to reveal when she gave birth to her newborn, she revealed in an Instagram post on June 29 that Ruby had been born.

Sian shared her happy baby news along with a bunch of adorable snaps, writing: ‘Our little Ruby [love heart emojis]’.

She continued: ‘I know that showbiz news has to be in good hands and with someone who deals with showbiz stories every morning and works with me most mornings when I work on the radio…

“This is the handover of all handovers! I really think he’s the perfect guy for the job, I work with him every morning and he’s fantastic. It’s Jordan North everyone!”

She said, ‘I’m tired, I’m overjoyed, but it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. I’m absolutely ecstatic.’

‘I’m loving every second of it, even though it’s a bit of a mess sometimes. Jake filmed me holding her and I said, “I can’t believe I’m meeting you, it feels like a dream!”

She said she ended up having an emergency C-section, despite initially planning a water birth.

Sian explains: ‘I said I would do whatever was safest for the baby’s delivery.

‘I planned a water birth but ended up having an emergency c-section. I felt so safe that I was in great hands. The midwives are really great but of course I feel quite stiff.’

Of her supportive partner Jake, she added: ‘He’s such a natural – you fall in love with your partner all over again. He’s taken over when he needed to.

‘He supported me when I needed it and also when I was emotional.’

Sian’s upcoming return to This Morning comes as Cat and Ben take a seven-week break, just four months after landing the job.
