Kara Tointon has welcomed her second child with fiancé Marius Jensen.

The Mr Selfridge actor announced the baby boy had arrived last week on 8 January as she thanked the hospital staff who helped deliver him.

"Our second bundle of joy arrived on Friday 8th at 9.46 am weighing 7.25 pounds. Couldn’t be more excited to start 2021 with this incredibly cool little man joining our family.

"Thank you to the amazing team at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital for bringing him into the world safely. 08/01/2021," she wrote on Instagram.

The ex-EastEnders star posted it alongside a black and white photograph of the tot's tiny hand.

Tointon and Jensen are already parents to two-year-old son Frey who was born in 2018.

Norway-born Jensen popped the question to Tointon back in 2018 too, although their wedding plans were disrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

They had planned to tie the knot in Norway at some point last year but had to reconsider.

Speaking back in 2020, she told OK! Magazine: "It’s going to happen, but probably not this year now. We’re both quite last minute people and don’t overthink these things.

"So I think it will probably be a quick 'let’s just do it' moment. I think it will be in Norway. A lot of my family and friends have never been there so it’ll be a nice little trip for them all.”

Prior to meeting Jensen, Tointon had relationships with her EastEnders co-star Joe Swash and Strictly Come Dancing partner Artem Chigvintsev.
