Vogue Williams and Spencer Matthews have just welcomed their baby daughter to the world.

The Irish presenter announced the news to her Instagram on Thursday 23 July with a snap where she looked radiant alongside Spenny as she revealed that they were proud parents of a newborn.

She captioned the picture: "Last night we became a family of four. Our beautiful daughter arrived safely and happily into the world".

It is hard to believe that the pair, who also have a son called Theodore, 21 months, have two children when it seems like just yesterday the Chelsea Lothario and Ireland’s sweetheart shocked the nation by revealing they were a couple.

But it was actually over three years ago that the unlikely duo met.

We take a look back at the couple’s romance from the very beginning.

How did Vogue and Spencer meet?

Vogue and Spencer met on the Channel 4 reality show The Jump back in the early months of 2017. The programme saw celebrity contestants compete in a variety of winter sports including bob sleighing and skiing.

However, their journey in the Alps was not as smooth as Spencer’s flirting, for Vogue was forced to pull out of the show before it had even begun because she injured herself in rehearsals.

Although Vogue could not compete in the contest Spencer definitely competed for her love, as she revealed in an interview with EVOKE.ie: “He kept ringing me after we’d done The Jump ad together and I was like ‘this guy is so strange’ – he hadn’t grown on me yet!

“He’d call me and say he was out and about in Chelsea and I’d be like ‘I live in East London, there’s no way I’m travelling 45 minutes to hang out with you.’ We were just really good pals for ages.

“Then we were in Austria, we were having a few drinks and that’s the way it goes.”

How did Spencer propose to Vogue?

Just over a year after they began dating Spencer decided to take the jump and get down on one knee.

The reality star is known for being quite bold in his decisions and his choice of proposal certainly didn’t disappoint.

Spencer proposed live on stage at the Lyceum Theatre after the pair had watched a performance of The Lion King.

Speaking to Heat World about why he decided to take their relationship to the next step, he said: "I’ve known Vogue was the one for a long time. We’re very happy and in love. She’s my best friend and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her.

"The engagement had to be special, and as our first trip away together was to Disneyland Paris, it felt like the perfect fit," he said of the proposal.

"The Lion King is also one of the greatest stories of all time, so I figured that having just had a romantic evening watching it, she’d probably say yes!”

Some critics were quick to slam the proposal, calling it a PR stunt but Vogue refuted this in an interview with Fabulous magazine, saying: “Spencer loves it. He was doing Lion King quizzes at home recently – how sad.

“He’s seen the show two or three times. I don’t know how many times he’s watched the movie. We were watching it over Christmas and he was annoyed that I’d fallen asleep. He was like: 'Wake up and watch it!'”

Spencer and Vogue’s wedding

In the summer of 2018 Spencer and Vogue married in a secret ceremony in Scotland. Vogue was already six months pregnant at the wedding that took place outdoors on the banks of the loch on Spencer’s families 30,000 acres estate.

The beaming bride wore a bespoke Paul Costello gown that covered her baby bump and Spencer looked dapper in a stand-out midnight blue suit made by Taylor Lutwyche. Families of the couple are believed to have been in attendance with Pippa Middleton's husband James Matthews, who is Spencer’s brother, playing the role of best man.

The Made In Chelsea star and pregnant Vogue were reportedly keen to marry before the birth of their first child that September. A source told The Sun Online before the wedding: “It is understood the wedding will be private and low-key. They are keen to make their union official before becoming parents.”

After the wedding, Spencer gushed about how excited he was to have children, saying: “I can’t wait. I’ve always loved children and been fascinated with them. I have three nieces, a nephew and seven godchildren so I’m always around them. I can’t wait to watch my son grow up, to play sports with him and see his first day at school.”

The birth of their first child, Theodore

Vogue announced the birth by posting a sweet snap to her Instagram account of her touching the tiny tot’s leg. The caption read: "This morning at 3:55am, we welcomed our son into a quiet London hospital… He is beautiful and healthy. We feel truly blessed”.

Vogue reportedly used an Epi-No to make giving birth more bearable, explaining on the Made by Mammas podcast: "I didn’t have any tearing. I used an Epi-No. I hated using it but I used it for three weeks before the birth.

"It’s a balloon that you put inside you and you do your kegel exercises. You blow it up and it exercises you… Lube is essential by the way. It really worked, it gets your muscles ready for it, it really worked for me.

"I was terrified of tearing badly. But it still is painful down there obviously."

Thankfully, however, all went to plan and the couple have been loved up with their bundle of joy ever since. They even starred in a TV show about their new family life called Spencer, Vogue and Baby Too where fans could follow their journey into parenthood.

Writing on her Instagram some days after the birth Vogue said: "My whole world has changed with the arrival of our beautiful boy Theodore.

"The last two weeks have been the best of my life. I am loving every minute of being a mother, even the very sleepy wake up calls at night.

"Spencer and I have never felt love like it, Theodore you are our world… ”, accompanied by a red heart emoji.

Vogue's pregnancy with their daughter

Vogue announced that she was pregnant with the couple's second child, a daughter, back in March. She then took to Instagram to confirm the news, a topless Spencer is seen resting Theodore on his chest at their home, with their dog Winston hilariously looking stunned at the camera.

Vogue wrote to her 726,000 followers: "Winston looks pretty shocked in this picture shortly after Ts arrival!

"You should have seen him when we told him the news," alongside a trio of laughing crying emoji faces.

Bak in February, Spencer opened up to OK! magazine about how he and Vogue couldn't wait to welcome more children.

He said: "We would like three or four kids and hopefully we will have another one soon.

"Theodore makes it very easy to love kids. He's an extremely happy little boy, although I think that he might need a haircut soon.

"His hair is rather long and he looks like a little girl. The other day he got sent a bracelet with 'Theodora' written on it."

What has Spencer said about the birth of his daughter?

On Thursday Spencer shared his joy at the birth of his baby daughter.

Taking to Instagram he shared two snaps, one of himself looking lovingly at his wife and smiling.

The other of his hand clasped around Vogue's wrist, which is adorned with her hospital bracelet from Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

Beneath the images he wrote a heartfelt ode to his gorgeous wife, exclaiming: "Wow, we officially have CHILDREN!!

"So much has happened in the last three years. Real positive change, a son and now a daughter.

"I couldn’t be more thankful to my incredible wife @voguewilliams for all that you do for our family, in particular the laborious pregnancies which us men will never fully understand."

He then went on to praise the presenter for helping him in other aspects of his life, writing: "Thanks also for making me see the light through my rocky relationship with alcohol.

"@cleanliquor, which fills me with so much drive and purpose would never have existed without you…

"I have always dreamt of being a great father and because of you, that is now achievable. Feel lucky ever day to be married to you."
