Katherine Ryan has given birth just two weeks after revealing her pregnancy.

The comedian shared the news by debuting her blossoming bump at a live performance.

This morning, she took to Instagram to reveal that her second child had been born.

Posing up with the little one in her arms, she joked: "I have a really food reason why yesterday's podcast is late."

She shared a second snap of her beau, childhood sweetheart Bobby Kootstra, holding the baby in his arms, joking that the youngster arrived just in time for the football.

She has not yet revealed the gender of her child or the name she and Bobby have chosen.


It was just over two weeks ago that Katherine unveiled her pregnancy by stepping out on stage with a huge bump.

The comic and TV presenter, 37, was staging a live recording of her podcast Telling Everybody Everything when she dropped the bombshell.

The star, who hosts Your Face Or Mine with Jimmy Carr, is already a proud mum to Violet, 11.

She welcomed her second child with Bobby, the childhood sweetheart she recently reunited with.

They'd reunited the year previous after a chance encounter brought them back into each other's lives.

She told the Mail at the time of her wedding: "I don't want a big occasion because of the history of it and the fact women used to belong to their fathers and then belong to their husbands and put on a white dress because they're virgins, I mean I think it's gross and I don't want to do it.

Just in time for kick off!

"I appreciate that other people like to have a party but again I get to put on beautiful dresses and not have to make an invite list and arrange seating and hire a DJ, I just don't want to do those things at all."

The Canadian star also once opened up about her previous relationship with Bobby, saying: "When we were young, I was deeply in love with him. We were prom king and queen."

While Katherine only very recently confirmed her pregnancy, her fans had been speculating about it for a while.

Back in March, people began saying they thought they'd spotted a baby bump in one of her social media posts.

She had shared a snap of herself in a yellow dress, sitting down with her arms folded across her lap.
