The news comes after the Heart radio DJ gave birth to her daughter Luna three months ago.

Taking to social media to share the news, Zoe posted a black and white photo of her baby’s hand, letting her 33,400 followers know she was doing well.

She wrote alongside it: “On Monday evening our beautiful little girl arrived into the world… now I know what perfection is.

“We love you so much Little L @pauldoranjones.”

Paul already had daughter Isla, three, from a previous relationship and is thought to have met Zoe in 2015, through mutual friends. 

Zoe revealed in August this year that she had unergone IVF treatment after her sister Kathryn went through an early menopause at 34.

She said on This Morning: “I have a very low AMH rate, which is anti-mullerian hormone, one of the markers for low ovarian reserves. So basically I don’t have many eggs left.

“It felt like a ticking time bomb to me, and I tried to go for an egg freeze. He [Paul] kept very calm. He said we’ll deal with it together.”
