Helen Skelton received a pretty special Christmas present after giving birth to her third child.

The Countryfile presenter has welcomed another baby with husband Richie Myler, and shared the joyful news on Instagram with the first photo of the newborn.

Without revealing the gender or name, Helen’s little one was seen tucked up in a car seat carried by proud dad Richie.

She captioned the post: ‘Can always count on dickie …. of all the things he’s said (there’s been a lot) “don’t worry I will be your lido…” while on route to hospital might be my fave. The man meant Doula. From the mouths of men.’

The TV star explained that the photo was taken earlier this week but hadn’t posted sooner as her mother ‘likes the family what’s apps to be ahead of insta’.

Helen added: ‘But mainly because I am still failing to find appropriate words of thanks for our @nhsengland @nhsmillion …. legends the blooming lot of them). #grateful #thanks #pregnancy #birth #newparents #newbaby #husbands #doula.’

Congratulating the happy couple, Strictly Come Dancing star John Whaite commented: ‘Welcome to the world beautiful baba. And congratulations family.’

Ben Fogle added: ‘Congratulations Helen 🙌 x.’

Helen, 38, and Richie, 31, are already parents to son Ernie, six, and Louis, four, and announced her pregnancy in September.

They shared the news with a photo of their children touching her baby bump, while stating how ‘grateful’ they were to be adding to their family.

It seems baby was a slightly early arrival as Helen previously said the due date was New Year’s Eve.

She previously told ITV’s Lorraine Kelly: ‘The other two were early and my husband keeps saying can we not do Christmas because he missed the last one.

‘I said that’s fine you do the dinner then I’ll sit there with my feet up!’

However, it’s not known if Helen’s delivery was quite as dramatic as with Louis, who was born on the kitchen floor with Richie away in France.

Helen and rugby star Richie have been married for eight years, tying the knot in December 2013.
