Ash Pollard has welcomed her first child with partner Pete Ferne – a baby girl.
In a sweet Instagram post shared on Friday, the former My Kitchen Rules star posed with the tot laying on her chest.
In the gorgeous black and white image, the 34-year-old lay down with her newborn baby cradled under a blanket.

The radio host wrote simply in the accompanying caption: ‘She’s here! #Obsessed’.
In Instagram Stories shared in the evening, Ash showed off the gifts she had already received from loved ones.
They included lush bunches of flowers and a lavish selection of meats, cheeses and crackers.
She captioned one of the photos: ‘So many beautiful florals to celebrate our new bundle!’
Ash thanked a number of her friends for the food delivery and seemed to be in great spirits.
Last week, the cook revealed the bub was already overdue – joking that her baby has ‘bad habits’ and is tardy like their mother.
In an Instagram post shared on Saturday, the star shared a selfie in which she flaunted her baby bump.
She wrote in the caption: ‘Y’all I’m still here! Baby is late (like its mother to a meeting). Father unimpressed with bad habits already starting in utero!’
Ash recently revealed she learned she was expecting while on the set of Seven’s All New Monty: Guys and Gals.
In between rehearsals for the strip show and early starts on Sea FM, the radio host thought she was just exhausted.
‘I get up for breakfast radio every morning and was absolutely burning the candle at both ends, so I just thought it was that,’ Ash said.
Instead of pulling out of the show, Ash soldiered on, saying: ‘I just thought, ‘whatever, this is a great experience. Whatever is happening to you now is not that debilitating, just work through it’, which I did.’
Ash announced tat she was expecting her first child with Peter on her HIT 101.3 breakfast show in March.
The chef and former cooking show star has been dating the builder since 2017.
