Samantha Faiers shares pictures of her birth and her new baby

Sam Faiers has shared the first photo of herself cuddling her new baby boy.

The former Mummy Diaries and The Only Way Is Essex star gave birth to her third child on May 15.

She hasn’t revealed her name yet – but the newborn is already a hit with her older children, Paul, six, and Rosie, four.

In a video montage announcing his birth, the children are seen hugging their new baby brother.

Her daughter Rosie even held her mother’s hand while she was in labor as Sam opted for a home birth in a swimming pool in the living room.

Posting a no-makeup snap holding her little bundle of joy, Sam had a message for her 2.5 million Instagram followers.

The 31-year-old reality TV star and podcaster said, “Hey everyone. Just wanted to say a big thank you for all the amazing messages of kindness.

“My heart is so full right now. I absorbed every second of the beauty of a newborn baby.

“I am totally in love with our little boy, and seeing Paul and Rosie with him is simply the most precious thing in the world.

“So much to tell you soon…but for now I’m taking this time to relax, be home and just enjoy being a mom of 3.”

The tot is the third child of Sam and his longtime partner Paul Knightley who is a real estate developer and real estate agent.

The couple met at a party in Chigwell in 2014 shortly after Sam split from her TOWIE co-star Joey Essex.

They had only been dating for five months when Sam found out she was pregnant with their first child, Paul Jnr, who was born in December 2015.

Daughter Rosie arrived two years later in November 2017 – and Sam had her first successful home birth with the NHS.

Speaking from her own positive experience, she encouraged anyone at low risk to do so.

Writing in her book My Baby & Me, Sam said: ‘I was nervous, but that was only because I didn’t know anyone else who had one.

“It felt so relaxed and I fell in love with the idea of ​​being in my own surroundings with all the comforts of my home close at hand.

“I could be responsible for how everything turned out, have whoever I wanted there and make it as stress-free as possible.

“The idea of ​​being in my own space for such a change of life even really appealed to me, as did the idea of ​​being able to go straight to my own bed with fresh sheets and a cup of tea and biscuits – that seemed idyllic!”
