Emily Atack has announced the birth of her first child.

Taking to Instagram, the Inbetweeners star posted a heartwarming snap of her cradling her newborn baby boy.

Her partner and new father Alistair Garner is also featured in the picture, placing his head on Atack's.

She penned to her 1.9million Instagram followers: "We have a beautiful son. Barney James Garner. All my dreams have come true."

Before long, several fans and famous faces rushed to congratulate the I'm A Celebrity star on the arrival of her newborn.

Soap star Hayley Tamaddon weighed in: "He’s here!!!! So happy for you my angel. Love you and can’t wait to meet Barney. Here if you need me."

And Lisa Snowdon added: "Oh darling Em! Yay! Congratulations to you both. Loads of love and welcome to the world little Barney." (sic)

The arrival of baby Barney comes just days after Atack pleaded for "help" in a candid and tongue-in-cheek post earlier this week.

Showing off her blossoming baby bump on Wednesday, a makeup free Atack typed to fans: "Help...Me," followed by a laughing emoji.

Atack is arguably best-known for her role in the Channel 4 sitcom The Inbetweeners in which she played the role of Charlotte Hinchcliffe.

After the comedy came to a close in 2010, Atack has gone on to be an ever-present figure on British TV screens, landing her own comedy show, The Emily Atack Show, on ITV.
