EastEnders' Kara Tointon welcomes a baby boy as she gives birth to second son with fiancé Marius Jensen

FORMER EastEnders star Kara Tointon has given birth to her second son with her fiancé Marius Jensen.

The 37-year-old actress, who played Dawn Swann in the soap, thanked the nurses at the London hospital where she gave birth, calling the new arrival "incredibly cool".

She told Hello: "Our second bundle of joy arrived on Friday 8th January at 9.46 am weighing 7.25 pounds. 

"Couldn’t be more excited to start 2021 with this incredibly cool little man joining our family.

"Thank you to the amazing team at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital for bringing him into the world safely."

Kara revealed in October that she was six months pregnant with a baby boy, almost two years after she and chiropractor partner Marius welcomed their son Frey.

She told Hello: "I think this year has brought so many things in different ways.

"At the beginning of the year I was due to start a play, and now I am at home in a little cocoon and pregnant."

Kara added: "We really wanted a sibling for Frey. So we said: 'If it happens, it happens, let's go with the flow.' And it happened much quicker than we expected."

The actress – whose sister is Inbetweeners star Hannah Tointon – said she was looking forward to welcoming another baby boy into the world, despite joking she will be "outnumbered".

She said: "Hannah and I have such a close bond, so now I am thinking how lovely for Frey to have a brother. I'll be outnumbered with Marius and two boys but bring it on."

The actress previously dated her Strictly Come Dancing pro partner Artem Chigvintsev, 38, after they won the 2010 series.

Before that she dated Joe Swash, also 38, who starred alongside her in EastEnders as Micky Miller.
