Strictly star Nicola Adams welcomes first baby with girlfriend Ella Baig and shares pic

Nicola Adams and her girlfriend Ella Baig have welcomed their first child – a baby boy.

The couple announced the news in a sweet post shared on Instagram as they posted a black-and-white photo of their hands wrapped around the feet of their baby boy.

"We are so excited to announce to the world that @babyadamsadventures has arrived," Nicola captioned the post.

"The first moment we laid eyes on you we felt an instant love and the strongest bond. We went to the moon and back to get you and we can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives watching you grow #babyboy #twomoms #twomums."

Nicola, 39, and Ella, 24, announced that they were expecting their first child earlier this year following three rounds of IVF, which they began in 2019, and revealed in April that they were expecting a baby boy.

Discussing their IVF struggles before getting pregnant, Nicola told Vogue: "In 2019, we started our fertility journey. We had a lot of appointments and did a lot of tests before the actual process started. We decided that Ella would carry the baby, that we’d use my egg, and find a sperm donor that resembled Ella.

"The main hurdle was not knowing as much about IVF as we do now – about the tests that needed to be done and the things to look out for which can affect the pregnancy."

She added: "Unbeknownst to us, Ella went through her first rounds of IVF with an underactive thyroid which can dramatically impact the chances of having a healthy pregnancy. It’s something that’s easy to diagnose with blood tests and treat with medication. Our first attempt failed and Ella had a miscarriage."
