Jacqueline Jossa has opened up about welcoming her first child with boyfriend Dan Osborne.

The EastEnders actress, who gave birth to daughter Ella Selina last week, spoke to OK! magazine about her water birth.

She explained: “It was like she just swam up to us… it was just amazing. I remember thinking, ‘Wow, I did good, I can’t believe I actually just did that.’”

The 22-year-old added that it was a surreal experience: “Then I saw her big tuft of dark hair, I could hear Daniel crying behind me but it was strange, it was like I couldn’t even cry as I was so shocked.

“I was just looking at her thinking, ‘What the hell? That’s my baby. And she looks just like me!’ It was amazing.”

Dan and Jacqueline welcomed a baby girl last week.
