The Emmerdale actress – who has played Vanessa Woodford in the ITV soap since 2012 – shared a sweet black and white photo of her after the birth and another photo of her newborn daughter.

Michelle penned: “Introducing Betty Brooks to the world! Betty made a cheeky early appearance on Tuesday 15th November weighing 5lb 10ozs. We all love you so much our beautiful Betty B.”

Her famous pals flooded the comment section with touching messages, with newsreader Lucrezia Millarini writing: “Many congratulations – what a beaut! x”

Another said: “Congratulations, what a sweet little blessing she is”

Michelle and her wife Kate announced in July that they were expecting their second child together.

Later that month, the pair joined the The Loose Women panel to reveal the gender of their baby.

Wearing a floral maxi dress, Michelle showed off her perfectly growing baby bump at 23 weeks pregnant.

The soap star told the panel: “It’s 23 weeks this week and it’s seemed to have flown by, the first 12 weeks this time round…quite a bit of morning sickness.

“So, with Teddy it was just a bit of quipping.”

Michelle then opened up about the donor process and said: “We were at the clinic but we didn’t know much about it and it, we did a little bit of research.

“It was as simple as what characteristics, like colour hair and we didn’t know really…just as long as they’re kind really and a lovely person.

“They sent through two donor CV’s.”

Kate added: “For us it was important that they [the donor] was very kind, intelligent, just good family values and the guy we chose had all those attributes.”

Michelle explained that the donor is willing to meet the kids when they are old enough.

The couple were thrilled to share the gender news live on-air and revealed: “So baby number two is…a little girl.”

Michelle and Kate already share son Teddy, who was born in October 2020.
