Meanwhile, fans were quick to show their love for the sweet meeting, with one writing: "Awww this is so beautiful"

A second wrote "Glowing in alll ways!!!!", while a third said "Ahhhhhh this is so special xx".

OIivia has posted a number of Q&As to her Instagram story since giving birth, answering any questions that her fans have about baby Abel.

During one of the Q&As on Instagram Stories, Olivia linked her son's name to that of a close relative’s as she explained the decision behind selecting it: “My mum was going to call my brother Abel, it was one she had on her mind & we just loved it!

"I love how classic it is but not very common! Jacob is my brother’s name so that’s his middle name & we loved the idea of AJ as a nickname xxx.”

The new mum offered up more details about how she’s been finding motherhood as she described how surprising the experience has been for her so far, writing: “Honestly, I think I’m surprised at myself how I’ve taken to it.

“I really didn’t expect to be like this. I’ve always said I’ve never felt maternal, but this felt instant which has shocked me!”

Olivia mentioned that she went into labour while at the pub with her friends and spoke of how she had gone through “baby blues” following the birth of her son after not knowing "which way was up", but has overall been overwhelmed with happiness.

Though a public face herself, she added that she has chosen for now to keep her baby boy’s face hidden as a "protective mum”.
