A baby boy has been greeted by Kellie Shirley.
The 41-year-old mother of three made the joyful announcement on Sunday and shared a precious photo of the infant wrapped in a blanket.
In November, Kellie, who is best known for her role as Carly Wicks on EastEnders from 2006 to 2008, said she was “shocked” to discover she was expecting a second child.
Over the weekend, Kellie posted a picture of her baby along with the caption, “So there’s this new fella in my life… and wow!” #babyboy.’
The television personality and her spouse Phil Davies are already devoted parents to twins Pearl and Louis, who are seven years old.
The actress said of her pregnancy in a late-year interview with OK!: “Since the pregnancy was a shock, I felt like I wanted to be able to bond with the baby more. I have no preferences; all I want is for the infant to be healthy.
The celebrity wrote in December and discussed giving her twins’ umbilical cords to individuals who had blood cancer.
In order to replace cancer patients’ damaged cells with normal, healthy ones, Kellie stated that stem cells that are abundant in blood stored in newborns’ umbilical cords are transplantable into cancer patients.
I assumed the umbilical cord was just a piece of flesh connecting the child to the mother’s placenta, the woman continued. After giving birth, it is typically discarded in clinics (unless it was blended into a smoothie, of course!).
But after speaking with Miriam Gonzalez Durántez, the spouse of former deputy prime minister Nick Clegg, I was astounded to learn just how miraculous and beneficial umbilical cords actually are. how they could prolong the life of someone who has blood disease.
Donating your baby’s umbilical cord is a no-brainer, she continued, and it’s an amazing feeling to know that it can be put to such excellent use.
