Sam Faiers has opened up about her daughter's "peaceful" birth, following her baby girl's arrival last week. The proud mum took to her Instagram account on Saturday to share a new photo of her baby – which saw her wrapped up in a pink blanket with her eyes wide open. The former TOWIE star captioned the photo: "Exactly 1 week ago, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. 11-11-2017. I had a home water birth, it was such a lovely experience. We are so in love with you." The photo then got fans guessing as to the name of the newborn, with many suggesting that she should be called Poppy, due to her birthday falling on Remembrance Day. Others observed that Sam's little girl looked just like her mum, with one writing: "She is absolutely gorgeous, and looks so much like you."

The reality TV star wrote in the caption: "I must have watched this video over a hundred times already. I am so proud of my babies. Paul is already so loving towards he’s little sister. my heart is bursting xxx."
