Hollyoaks star Chelsee Healey is celebrating the birth of her baby daughter and says she's "never felt a love like it".
Chelsee has revealed that she suffered a traumatic labour which resulted in an emergency C-section at the weekend.
But she has now been able to return home from hospital with her baby girl - and it has been love at first sight for the star.
Former Waterloo Road star Chelsee posted the first photo with her daughter on her Instagram account today, an adorable image of the tot's tiny fingers wrapped around her own.
She also posted a photo with her daughter in hospital, surrounded by presents and balloons, with the message: "Home time for me and my Princess!".
She said: "So lucky, blessed and grateful. Overwhelmed, I've honestly never felt a love like it!

But she added: "You was worth it my baby doll! We love you so much already precious baby."
Strictly Come Dancing favourite Chelsee has yet to reveal the name of her little princess, her first child with boyfriend Jack Molloy.
