    Natalie Cassidy gives birth to baby girl

    Natalie Cassidy has given birth to a little girl.

    The former EastEnders actress and her fiancé Adam Cottell have named her Eliza Beatrice.

    She was born by Caesarean section last week weighing a healthy 8lb 15oz.

    Speaking to OK! Magazine, Natalie said: "We're on cloud nine, we keep crying all the time. We're a family! I can't believe she's ours. She's so beautiful. I can't begin to tell you - I know everybody says that about their own baby but she really is."

    27-year-old Natalie also said that unlike many other celebrities, she is not in a rush to lose her baby weight:

    "I feel like I didn't put loads of weight on during the pregnancy. But you don't have five minutes spare when you've got a little baby, so it's really natural to lose weight through being so busy. I'd love to start swimming and walking again."

    Natalie's decision not to focus too much on weight loss comes after she lost four stone and went down to a size six when she was working on her 2007 fitness DVD.

    She has since called the weight loss "madness."
