Coronation Street star Nicola Thorp has welcomed her first baby with Nikesh Patel.
Nicola Thorp, 35, took to social media to reveal the happy news.
Nicola Thorp penned a lengthy note. She said:
‘We are delighted to say that we recently welcomed our beautiful baby daughter into the world.’
‘Everything they say about birth being a rollercoaster of emotions is true. We’re shattered and smitten and everything in between.
‘Social media is a difficult place right now. If your timeline is anything like ours, it’s filled with images of babies and children dying in conflict or living in fear and unimaginable danger.
‘It doesn’t feel right to share our news on her without also acknowledging how fortunate we are that our baby is safe.
‘If like us you feel helpless, please consider donating to the United Nations Sexual and Reproductive Health Agency, who are responding to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and supporting pregnant women, new mums and their babies.
‘Every child deserves to be born into safety.’
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) an unprecedented 93% of the population in Gaza is facing crisis levels of hunger, with insufficient food and high levels of malnutrition.
