News of the birth comes 11 months after Cara suffered a devastating miscarriage when she was five months pregnant.
Cara’s delivery came after she celebrated her mother Annie’s birthday on Thursday night, as she posted a photo on Instagram of a family dinner.
The raven-haired beauty was originally due on 7 February and admitted on her Instagram that she was going for a long walk in a bid to bring on labour.

She wrote: ‘Today’s due date and no sign of this baby yet… So looks like we’re out on a walk for the day… #duedate.’
Cara revealed her latest pregnancy last September when she was 22 weeks gone after months of nervousness due to her tragic loss earlier that year.
She told Closer magazine: ‘Daniel and I knew we wanted to get pregnant again straight away so I was overjoyed when I found out I was expecting two months later
‘We went through an awful time together, and I can see how something that traumatic can break a couple. But we saw a different, more caring side to each other and it brought us so much closer.
‘I’ll never forget my first baby, it’ll always be part of our family, but now we can’t wait to become parents.’
Among those congratulating Cara following the safe arrival of her child was former TOWIE star Frankie Essex, who tweeted: ‘Congratulations to my Darling and new Mummy @carakilbey I’m so proud of you tears of happiness I cry for you and Daniel.’
