Dancing On Ice's Beth Tweddle reveals she's given birth to her first baby and has named her Freya Allen

BETH Tweddle has revealed she's given birth to a baby daughter – and she's named her Freya Allen.

The gymnast and Dancing On Ice star, 34, announced the happy news on Instagram today with a sweet post of the newborn's hand.

She wrote: "Exciting news! Andy and I are delighted to welcome and introduce Freya Allen to the world.

"Born 16th May, both her and I are doing well. What an unbelievable feeling and we're looking forward to the amazing journey ahead x."

Beth confirmed her pregnancy on Twitter back in December.

She wrote: "Really excited to share the news that Andy and I are expecting our first child in May 2019."

The Team GB star, who represented the UK at three Olympic Games, shared a picture of a Christmas tree and a stack of presents with a sign that reads: "Our greatest gift is due to be unwrapped May 2019."

The happy news came six months after Beth and Andy tied the knot in her home village of Banbury, Cheshire.

Beth, who has appeared in reality shows such as Dancing On Ice and The Jump since retiring from gymnastics, told

Hello! magazine: "The whole thing was just magical, more so than we ever could have imagined.

"On the morning, so many people in the village had come to my house to see the cars off and along the route.

"And I couldn’t believe how many people were outside the church."

She added of her future plans: ""It’s like we’re opening up a new book.

"We’re excited about the future and have loads to look forward to.

"We’re ambitious, love to travel and we’re still bedding into our new house…

"We’d love a family so who knows. Watch this space!"

The three-time world champion also credited her finance director husband Andy with supporting her after she fractured her neck while on The Jump.

She said: "There are still moments where I’ll do something and it hits home that it happened.

"I’m not 100 per cent better yet, physically or mentally."

Beth and Andy got engaged at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, two years after they started dating.
