Katherine Ryan has announced that she’s welcomed her second child- just two weeks after revealing her pregnancy.
The comedian, 37, shared the happy news on Instagram Stories on Monday, posting a radiant snap of herself cradling the newborn.
She also posted a short clip of beau Bobby Kootstra holding their little one while watching a Euro 2020 football game, saying their baby arrived ‘just before kick off’.

Katherine, who did not reveal if she had welcomed a boy or girl and is already mum to Violet, 11, looked sensational as she lay with her little one and smiled for a selfie.
She sported a pretty floral robe while the newborn was wrapped up in a cream blanket and sweet beige hat.
The star, who had been sharing updates to Instagram throughout Sunday about her podcast, penned: ‘I have a really good reason yesterday’s podcast was late.’
New dad Bobby seemed to already be taking to fatherhood like a pro as he was seen cradling the baby while watching the Netherlands and Ukraine match at the hospital.

The announcement comes just a day after Katherine shared a photo of her bump on Instagram – and only two weeks after she confirmed her pregnancy during a live recording of her podcast.
Katherine surprised the audience at a recording of her Telling Everybody Everything podcast in London when she stepped out on stage in a tight-fitting dress that clung to her huge baby bump.
She refused to share her due date with the audience as she told the crowd her main piece of pregnancy advice was to never reveal that piece of information.
She also praised the Duchess of Sussex for having only said she will give birth to her second child in the ‘summertime’.

Katherine explained being vague stopped people asking too many questions and comparing the size of her bump to other pregnant women.
She later brought out her daughter Violet onto the stage, and the youngster said she was ‘very excited’ to be a big sister.
Fans had been speculating Katherine was expecting since March, when she shared an image of herself on Instagram sitting on a chair in a yellow dress.
After Katherine announced she was expecting, Bobby shared a bump shot of Katherine’s growing stomach.
She first revealed her baby bump during an appearance on Celebrity Juice, but did not discuss her pregnancy during the show.

Some followers said that they thought they’d caught a glimpse of a bump, but the recording was the first time Katherine had confirmed the news directly.
The baby’s arrival also comes shortly after Katherine hit back at ‘sexist’ questions asking if she’ll cancel her upcoming tour because she’s pregnant.
The comedian defiantly told her followers: ‘I’m just gonna let that sexism wash over me. I’m not gonna let it affect my zen. No, I’m not cancelling my tour.’
Katherine recorded the frustrated video in a cosy plaid padded jacket and went make-up free as she explained her plans to her followers.
Filming outside in front of a horse pen, the irritated comedian said: ‘I’ve received a lot of really touching nice messages and a lot of rude messages…
