CALL The Midwife's Helen George has given birth to her second baby at least two weeks early - and shared a sweet snap of the newborn on Instagram.

The 37-year-old star announced the little one's arrival as she wished her partner Jack Ashton a happy birthday.

She did not reveal the baby's gender, name, or birth date - but did confirm that they were born earlier this week, having previously said she was due in December.

Helen captioned the social media tribute to Jack: ...Happiest of birthdays my love. What a week. And forevermore you will share your birthday week with your second born....

She jokingly added: ...Sorry I couldn’t cross my legs any longer....

In the photo, Jack is gazing adoringly at his baby, who is laying on his chest - a stunning view of London is visible through the window.

Helen announced her pregnancy back in June when she unveiled her bump in a sweet Instagram post.

The nurse, who plays nurse Trixie Franklin and appeared on Strictly in 2015, simply wrote at the time: ...Baking number 2. Due in December 👶🏼....
