Jennifer Metcalfe is a first-time mum after giving birth to baby boy

A spokesperson for the Hollyoaks actress revealed the happy news in a statement on Wednesday (21Jun17).

Jennifer Metcalfe is a first-time mother after giving birth to a son with boyfriend Greg Lake.

A spokesperson for the Hollyoaks actress revealed in a statement on Wednesday (21Jun17): "We are delighted to announce that our client Jennifer Metcalfe and partner Greg Lake have welcome a baby boy into the world yesterday. Mother and baby are doing fine."

The 34-year-old has yet to reveal any more details, such as a name or the tot's birth weight, on her social media page, but she revealed in a previous interview that she and her former Geordie Shore star beau were sorted on a moniker if they had a boy.

“For a boy’s name, we’re sorted," Jennifer told Reveal magazine. "If the baby comes out and it’s a girl, we’ll have to get our thinking caps on."

The couple first announced they were expecting a baby together in February, with Jennifer admitting at the time that she was already six months along. They had been together for five years before the actress fell pregnant.

Jennifer added in the interview with Reveal magazine that neither she nor Greg were swotting up on parenthood by reading baby books.

"He hasn’t read any baby books, either,” she told the publication. “Greg is the same as me – at one point we were both saying, ‘How do we do this? How do we do that?’ But I’m hoping we’ll know instinctively.”

Jennifer also admitted she didn't have a birthing plan and had skipped antenatal classes, instead preferring to put her trust in “mother nature”.

"There are some countries and societies where people can't go to classes, and they get on with it," she explained.

"I trust myself to just get on with it. I think the minute you start going, there's a plan, and plans are rubbish. Nine times out of 10, they go out of the window anyway."
