‘Our beautiful baby boy’: Footballer Andy Carroll and fiancee Billi Mucklow welcome their first child together

West Ham United footballer Andy Carroll and his fiancee Billi Mucklow are celebrating after the birth of their first child together.

The couple, who have been dating for nearly two years, welcomed a baby boy on Monday.

Announcing the birth on their respective social media accounts, new mum Billi tweeted: ‘Welcome To The World Our Beautiful Baby Boy @AndyTCarroll.’

Father-of-three Andy, 26, posted a photo of the happy family on Instagram, gushing: ‘Welcome To The World Little AC!! 9 Months Of Cooking And What A Wonderful Job You Have Done @billimucklow.’

There’s no detail yet on the name, but it looks like the baby boy’s new name will begin with A just like his father.  

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Billi, 26, and Andy started dating in summer 2013, but didn’t go public as a couple until February 2014.

Andy and Billi got engaged last November after he whisked her off to Rome for a surprise birthday weekend.

In one image posted to her Instagram account, the former TOWIE showed off her sparking engagement ring while standing in front of the Colosseum with Andy.

Captioning the shot, she announced: ‘Last night the Love Of My Life Asked Me To Marry Him – I’m So Happy. You Are My Everything and I Can’t Wait To Be Your Wife! #MrsCarroll.’

Billi broke the news of her pregnancy on Christmas Day by donning a festive jumper with the words ‘making my little pudding’ in an Instagram snap with West Ham United footballer Andy, who posted the picture : ‘Merry Christmas #OurLittlePudding.’

The blonde left TOWIE in 2013 to focus on her Bikram yoga studio, her second business after running Beaus & Belles beauty salon.
