"Thank you so much for every single message," she wrote in her story caption, shared with a black and white photo of Leo sleeping.

"Can't believe he is here, a little earlier than expected. He is absolutely perfect and we are beyond smitten in our newborn bubble."

Tott rose to prominence for appearing as a waitress in the First Dates restaurant, alongside Fred Sirieix and Cici Coleman.

Tott hasn't appeared on the show since 2021, explaining her absence as due to filming being relocated from London to Manchester.

"I love my job, even if I have a little moan every now and then," she said of her new role. "Happy 2 Years, and here’s to many more, if my back allows."
