“Welcome to the Thomas family Elsie-Rose 💗”, she wrote alongside a cute snap of her and her newborn baby girl.

The 29-year-old actor took to Instagram on Christmas Day to reveal the gender of their baby.

The loved-up couple were recorded popping a balloon which saw pink confetti fall – revealing the gender as a girl.

In March, Caroline’s revealed how happy she was about welcoming a younger sister for the couple’s toddler son, Teddy.

“I’m so happy I’m having a girl, because now I have one of each,” she wrote in a blog for OK! magazine.

While the name hasn’t yet been confirmed, Caroline has previously said that she likes old fashioned names, to suit their son Ted.

The mum-of-two wrote: “My grandad passed away last year, and then we found out that the baby was due on his birthday – which is lovely.

“My dad used to have this nickname for my grandad, which is a girls name, and that’s the name we’ve picked for the baby”, she told OK! magazine.

The couple have admitted that now they ‘have one of each’ they feel no pressure to have any more children.

However, Caroline went on to admit that she has endured ill health this time round, explaining: “I loved being pregnant first time round, but at the start of this pregnancy I was really unwell.

“I was a little bit sick when I was pregnant with Ted, but I could still get on with things, but this time round I’ve been so poorly.”

It’s these health woes that have made the couple wary of extending their family. Caroline wrote: “Because I was so poorly at the beginning of this pregnancy, I’m more doubtful than I was about having more children,” she wrote.

The new parents tied the knot in a romantic ceremony held at Delamere Manor, Cheshire, on August 27, 2017. Adam has previously revealed that they conceived their newborn on their wedding night.
