The comedian and his partner Roxy Horner welcomed their first child earlier this week

Jack Whitehall and Roxy Horner have shared the first photos of their adorable baby daughter.

The model, 32, gave birth to their baby girl at St Mary's Hospital in London this week and was snapped leaving on Tuesday night.

This is the first child Whitehall, 35, and his other half share and are believed to have been together for two years before welcoming their daughter.

Cradling his newborn in his arms in a photo shared on Instagram, Whitehall expressed his delight in the accompanying caption.

"Well this just happened!" he began. "Utterly overwhelming and joyous in ways I couldn’t have even imagined.

"In awe of my partner @roxyhorner who has been amazing throughout this journey and is going to be the greatest mum ever.

"So excited to have started a family of my own," he continued. "Having vowed I’d never be that guy I am now 100% going to be the parent that shows everyone endless pictures of their kid.

"I also wore skechers to hospital, I think I must accept I am a full blown dad now," he quipped.

Whitehall referred to the baby's name with a tongue-in-cheek sentence but remained tight-lipped about the actual moniker.

"Name wise after this weekend I think ‘rice, rice, baby’ has a nice ring to it," the Arsenal fan quipped.
