ITV Benidorm Chantelle Garvey star gives birth to first child and shares sweet snaps

Benidorm star Hannah Hobley has welcomed her first child.

The actress, who portrays Chanetlle Garvey on the ITV show, announced the arrival of her daughter on Monday, as she shared a series of sweet snaps of her baby girl on Instagram.

Hannah, 34, wrote beside the photos: “Please excuse my absence from @benicontv over the weekend. This little lady arrived two weeks later than expected, but she was well and truly worth the wait.

“@nathrichsmith and I would like to proudly introduce you all to our daughter, Beatrice Hobley-Smith. Born on the 5th November. A date we will always remember.”

The new mum added: “For those that did attend, you will have gotten the first glimpse of Beatrice last night at the Benidorm Palace (virtually).

“The past 16 days have been incredible- she is amazing!”

Hannah is seen in the photos smiling whilst cradling her baby daughter in hospital, shortly after giving birth, as her fiancé Nathan is also seen beaming by her side.

Fans were quick to congratulate Hannah in the comments, following her announcement of her child’s arrival.

One person said: “Congratulations to you both she is very lovely welcome to motherhood it truly is the best job to have enjoy every second xxx.”

A second gushed: “Oh my goodness huge congratulations to you both she’s gorgeous and I Absolutely love the name.”

“Aww congrats to you both. What a beautiful little girl,” a third added.

Hannah made her first appearance as character Chantelle on Benidorm when she was 19 years old, as she played Mick and Janice Garvey’s teenage daughter on the show.

Viewers were left shocked by the end of the series, as Chantelle fell pregnant, and her son Coolio was introduced the next year.

Hannah hilariously announced her pregnancy in August as she posted a side-by-side photo of her dressed in the same pink tracksuit and yellow top her character Chantelle wore at the time she was pregnant in Benidorm, 15 years ago.

“Spot the difference…,” Hannah captioned beside the picture, leaving fans highly amused at the image comparison.

Hannah got engaged to her partner Nathan at the beginning of this year, as the pair enjoyed a trip to New York.

She shared with her followers at the time that Nathan had popped the question during a romantic stroll in Central Park as she posted a photo of her flashing her engagement ring.
