Tess Holliday gives birth

Tess Holliday has given birth to a baby boy.

The 30-year-old model - who already has a 10-year-old son, Rylee, from a previous relationship - and fiance Nick Holliday welcomed Bowie Juniper into the world on 6 June.

The tot weighed 8lbs 10oz and measured 22 inches long, a spokesperson confirmed to People magazine.

The couple shared a picture of Tess and Bowie with the publication, and the brunette beauty later revealed it had been taken while they were preparing to leave hospital.

Tess posted the picture on Instagram and wrote: "Our handsome little guy is here. Bowie Juniper Holliday

Tess - who has been dating Nick since 2012 and began using his surname professionally in 2015 - previously admitted the baby wasn't planned but she was "excited" about the new arrival.

She said: "It definitely was not planned and I was a little nervous when I first found out, but I'm excited!" 

And Tess - who is due to give birth in June - was hoping to enjoy having a newborn more than she did when Rylee was born.

She said: "When I had my son, I was 20 and I didn't know what I was doing and I didn't have help. I'm really excited to be doing it again and have support, and be able to enjoy having a baby, because I couldn't last time."

Though she already has one child, the model feels she has a lot to learn.

She said: "Anyone who is having another child, or even their first child, is lying if they're saying they're not nervous.

"I am worried about my ability to detach from work, and being able to focus on my family.

"It's [also] been 10 years since I had a kid, so there are so many things that are new. My friends that have babies are posting all of these new swings and breastfeeding techniques and new bottles, and it's really overwhelming because I thought, 'I've already done all this,' but it feels like I haven't. I'm having to relearn a lot!"
