Natasha Raskin Sharp shared the update on social media

BBC Bargain Hunt expert Natasha Raskin Sharp has announced the birth of her child.

A familiar face on the hit auction show as well as Antiques Road Trip and Flog It!, Sharp's fans were delighted as they congratulated the antique expert on the news.

The 37-year-old hasn't revealed the baby's name or sex yet, however.

Sharp shared the first glimpse of the newborn on Instagram in a photo which showed the tot's hand wrapped around her finger.

"What a way to start the year - the last few days have been nothing short of immense," Sharp began in the accompanying caption along with a love heart emoji.

She continued: "I’ll be handing over my Thursday night @bbcradioscot duties to the excellent @ravisagoogram for a short spell - thanks, Ravi. Catch him from 10pm on @bbcsounds.

"In the meantime, there’ll be lots of new #bbcbargainhunt and @antiqueroadtrip action (filmed when baby was a mere bump).

"Back soon! X," Sharp signed off as she confirmed she'll be spending some time off screens to enjoy motherhood.

It didn't take long for Sharp's followers to flood the post with their congratulatory messages.

One fan penned: "What lovely news!!! Blessings to you and the baby. May the years ahead bring much joy and laughter."

A second echoed: "Well … that’s a quality announcement! We generally watch Road Trip with a bit of a time lag so we will certainly look out for the tiny bump in future episodes. Many Congratulations."

Elsewhere, a third said: "Congratulations, and welcome to the most exciting adventure of your life."

"Will miss you on the Thursday night show but many congratulations," a fourth added while a fifth weighed in: "Congratulations, what a joyful time for you." (sic)

Sharp has welcomed the baby with her husband Joe Sharp, with whom she's been married since 2016.
