Jorgie Porter has had a boy with her fiancé, Ollie Piotrowski.
The Hollyoaks actress took to Instagram on Wednesday morning to announce the happy news, sharing a picture of herself and Ollie leaving the hospital with their son.
The couple announced they were expecting the baby in June in a video on Instagram that showed Porter, Piotrowski and their dog each waving their hands to reveal the sonogram photo.
It came just eight months after Jorgie, 34, lost quadruplets in a devastating miscarriage at 14 weeks.

The short clip, which the soap star captioned “Hopeful beginnings…[sic]’ captured a sweet revelation of a baby scan.
Oliver, Jorgie, Oliver’s son from a previous relationship and their pet pooch took turns removing their hands – and paws – to reveal the scan underneath.
The couple later revealed they are expecting a baby boy and are “thrilled” by the news.
In an interview in March, Jorgie revealed she had no idea she’d lost her quadruplets from a previous pregnancy because her body was “still pregnant” after a missed miscarriage.
The actress explained that she chose to have it surgically removed, while her fiancé, Ollie, spoke about feeling “helpless” during the ordeal as the pair appeared on Loose Women together.

She had a second miscarriage at six weeks of another pregnancy in February – on the day of the couple’s engagement party.
Announcing the news of re-pregnancy in HELLO! magazine, the couple said having a “healthy baby was a dream come true” as they shared their heartbreak after a series of miscarriages.
What is a missed miscarriage?
A missed miscarriage, also known as a missed abortion or silent miscarriage, occurs when a fetus dies but the body does not recognize the loss of pregnancy or expels the pregnancy tissue.
As a result, the placenta can continue to release hormones, so the woman may continue to show signs of pregnancy.
It’s usually diagnosed during a routine exam, where the doctor doesn’t see a heartbeat. A subsequent ultrasound shows an underdeveloped fetus.
Porter told the magazine: “We are very pleased to announce that we are expecting a baby boy. Of course, Ollie and I didn’t mind. All we wanted was a baby.
“He’s definitely very active and I can feel him doing somersaults and backflips. It’s amazing to think what we’ve created.’
Real estate developer Piotrowski, 33, described her emotions during routine ultrasounds after miscarriages last year.
He said: “We had been through so much to get to this point and had learned not to take anything for granted. Just having a healthy baby was a dream come true.”
In October, Jorgie enjoyed an expansive baby shower at the Firefly in Manchester, where she was joined by her friends, family and co-stars.
Guests were greeted upon entry by a large balloon arch and enjoyed a sumptuous meal to celebrate Jorige’s birth of a baby boy.
The actress, best known for her role as Theresa McQueen on Channel 4 soap Holyoaks, became engaged to Ollie while staying at the Gleneagles Hotel in Perth and Kinross.
The former Dancing On Ice star and her fiancé have been a couple since 2020 and officially took to Instagram in October this year.
