Shaughna Phillips has admitted she’s still in disbelief to have become a mum for the first time, describing her newborn baby girl as a ‘dream’. 

The former Love Island star, 28, recently announced she had given birth to her daughter who she has named Lucia.

She was born on April 4 but Shaughna waited until Thursday to share the joyful news. 

In an update on Friday, the reality star posted footage of her sleeping newborn to her Instagram stories, with the camera panning around Lucia as she snoozed in her bassinet and even appeared to give a slight smile at one point. 

‘My dream girl I can’t believe you’re mine,’ Shaughna captioned the clip. 

It comes just hours after Shaughna confirmed she’d given birth with a photo of her smiling at the camera while cradling the little one in hospital.

‘My darling Lucia, I wish I had you sooner so I could love you longer,’ she wrote. 

The new mum also revealed that Lucia had been born on Tuesday at 8:10pm, weighing 8lb 8oz.

Shaughna also shared a gorgeous photo of Lucia wrapped in a white blanket in her crib at home, with Adele’s hit ballad Make You Feel My Love accompanying the snap. 

‘The song that was playing when you entered the world, no truer word my darling,’ she wrote. 

The new mum then added the initials ‘LPW’ and a white heart emoji, teasing Lucia’s as yet unknown middle name and the apparent fact she will take her father Billy Webb’s surname.

Shaughna and Billy are believed to have split during her pregnancy around the time he was arrested and charged with possession with intent to supply a Class A drug. 

A rep for Shaughna previously told that the reality star was unaware of the offences.

The TV star gave an emotional statement addressing his arrest and the impact it had on her pregnancy.

‘After a challenging few weeks, obviously, the baby’s father isn’t around. But my main focus has always been just to prepare for the birth and try to be as calm as possible,’ she shared with OK!.

‘I’m good at just saying, “Right, the show must go on”.’

She went on: ‘Billy’s not around, but I don’t want to say that I’m doing it on my own, because I’m absolutely not – my family’s incredible.

‘It’s going to be different, but I don’t want to say it’s going to be bad.’
