Former EastEnders star Belinda Owusu has hinted that she has given birth to a baby girl after surprising fans by announcing she was 40 weeks pregnant with her first child.

Best known for playing Denise Fox's daughter Libby, affectionately called "Squiggle" in the hit BBC soap, Belinda is now starring on Holby City.

The 31 year old took to social media to announce the happy news of her full-term pregnancy at the start of the month and has since gone silent.

However, she made a return to Instagram on Sunday to drop the hint that she has welcomed a daughter.
