MADE in Chelsea star Louise Thompson has just announced the birth to her first child with fiance Ryan Libbey over on her Instagram.
The pint-sized star is a prolific Instagrammer and loves to keep fans updated on her glam lifestyle.
Who is Louise Thompson?
Louise was born on March 28, 1990, in London.
She has a brother, Sam, who also appears on the show.
She owns a successful clothing line called Pocket London and has fronted campaigns for Boux Avenue, Cadbury's Crème Egg, Magnum Mini's, Goddiva, and Gorgeous Couture.
Her book Live Well With Louise: Fitness & Food to Feel Strong & Happy was released June 28, 2018.
When did Louise Thompson have her baby?
On December 23, 2021, Louise announced the birth of her son, Leo-Hunter Libbey.
The Made In Chelsea star announced the news with fiance Ryan Libbey on Instagram as she told fans the birth was anything but easy in her post.
She revealed that she had secretly gave birth five weeks ago, but kept away from social media as she and her baby battled a series of terrifying complications.
Sharing the photo of her son Louise began the post: "The reason I have been absent for weeks is because I have been very unwell.
"5 weeks ago I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy Leo-Hunter Libbey weighing in at 7lbs. Unfortunately it wasn’t the easiest start for either of us. One ended up in NICU and the other ended up in ICU.
"Whilst Leo made a fairly quick recovery, I have been recovering in hospital for a month with various serious complications.
"In all honesty I never imagined that so many bad things could happen to me, but to dance with death twice brings a whole new view of the world – a stark reminder of how short and sacred life really is.
"We need to start living, we need to start loving, we need to start enjoying every minute detail in life (certainly easier said than done when you’re stuck in mental and/or physical purgatory or dealing with serious illness, depression or the fear of the unknown), but if you DO have the capacity, then try and cling onto any nuggets of good… and please please please be grateful for good health. The hard truth is that you don't know how lucky you are to have it until it's too late," she said.
When did Louise Thompson start dating Ryan Libbey?
The loved-up pair have been dating since Louise's split from American Alik Alfus in 2016.
Louise has since admitted they first meet in 2015 when Ryan gave her a personal training session.
He then made his debut on the show in August 2016 in the special South of France spin-off.
The pair announced they are engaged with Ryan popping the question on his birthday on August 4, 2018.
Louise said she "cried for three days" after he proposed.
She told OK! magazine: "I’m still shell-shocked.
"It’s the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to me in my entire life."
The couple now live together in a beautiful London townhouse which is next door to Louise’s brother Sam and his girlfriend Zara McDermott.

How long has Louise Thompson been on Made In Chelsea?
The 31-year-old can't claim to have been there from the start, but she joined E4 show Made in Chelsea for its second series back in 2011.
Her first ever storyline saw her battling for lothario Spencer Matthews' attention, while he also courted Caggie Dunlop.
She later went on to be at the centre of a love triangle between Spencer and his best pal Jamie Laing.
Louise, who quit Made in Chelsea in 2019 after eight years, told the MailOnline: "I love reality TV but with Made in Chelsea when I'm not in it I imagine it's this big thing but when I want back I actually felt deflated afterwards.
"It's hard to do something half-hearted and sort of dip your toe in; it's not really for me,
"If I'm going to do something I'm going to do it properly and being on the side lines, I'm going to be honest it doesn't make me feel very good.
"It's a great show but it's very time consuming. I don't know anyone now and everyone's sort of moved on." she explained.
