The 27-year-old reality star welcomed her first child with boyfriend Sam Mucklow after a complicated labour which saw her in the hospital for five days.
Writing on his Instagram Story, Sam said:
‘Shelby and our beautiful baby boy are both well and healthy. Shelby didn’t have a straightforward labour so she has been in hospital for five days. She has been an absolute soldier.
‘Also need to thank all of the doctors and nurses, midwifes in antenatal labour and postnatal at Queens Hospital, Romford. So many lovely staff we are so lucky to have the NHS. (sic)’.
The former ‘TOWIE’ star joined the hit ITVBe show in 2018 when she had a quick fling with Pete Wicks but the pair called it quits just months later following a series of rows.
She later coupled up with Sam in October 2018 and the pair revealed they were expecting their first child together earlier this year on social media.
The expecting parents beamed as they posed outside their front door, which had a feathered rainbow wreath supporting the NHS as decoration.
Shelby captioned the post:
‘Something fantastic is making us glad, we’re changing our names to Mum and Dad (sic)’.
She later quit the reality series in September to focus on being a mum and her relationship with Sam.
Last year, Sam left the show after returning home from Marbella early.
He later explained that he and Shelby had decided to leave the show due to the “pressure and anxiety” it put on their “fairytale” relationship.
Sam said in a statement:
‘Me and @shelbytribble have never been happier and we are continuing our little fairytale away from the pressure and anxiety from the show. I really feel I have made the right decision to focus on the things that are truly important to me!’.
