Emmerdale actor Jay Kontzle and his wife Mimi have welcomed their third child, OK! can exclusively reveal.
The couple, who are already parents to daughter KaiBo, six, and Zian, four, told us: “We're excited to announce that on Friday 18th November we were blessed with our third child. Mummy did amazing and both her and the baby are healthy and well."
Jay added with a laugh: "Here's hoping it's our last!"
The pair also exclusively shared the first picture of their new little one, with the sweet snap showing them holding their baby's tiny feet.
Artist Mimi, who was due at the end of November, was induced last Wednesday and their bundle of joy arrived on Friday.
Jay and Mimi, who have been married for six years, exclusively announced their pregnancy news to OK! in July and the star confessed that baby number three was far from planned.
Revealing that he found out the news during his lunch break on the set of the ITV soap, Jay, who plays Billy Fletcher, told us: “Mimi called me during my lunch break on set and told me.
"I was sitting eating lunch in the sun and all of a sudden I went hot and started dripping with sweat. I was a bit shocked!”
“Before that, Mimi had said she wanted to get a pregnancy test and I said: ‘A pregnancy test? That’s a lot of money that, especially with the cost of living going up.”
Mimi, 32, said about telling Jay over the phone: “I rang him and said: ‘You’re never going to guess what? I’m pregnant!’ He replied: ‘You’re not!’ And I said: ‘I am!’”
“She was so casual – and there I was sweating!” laughed Jay, 32.
And Mimi admitted she had actually been joking with Jay about having another child ahead of her revelation.
“I’d been winding Jay up for months before, saying I really wanted another child – but his answer was always no,” she said.
“So I think that made me want another one more, basically just to be spiteful. But then it kind of backfired and I did end up getting pregnant.
“It’s a great thing to be going through again,” added Jay. "II think it’s just the fact that we got to an age with our other two where they’re old enough and there’s no nappies and bottles, and we got our sleep back.
“I was settled with our two and I didn’t think we’d be having another one – but Mimi already had it planned. She likes to act like she’s not sly but she is!”
“I didn’t think it would happen,” Mimi said. “So much so that a week before we found out, I’d given away all our baby stuff.”
