Updates: Earlier in the day, after sharing a series of images of his partner in labour, Matthew wrote: ‘Baby and mum doing well! Thanks for the messages.’
Reality star, Charlotte, 28, the daughter of comedian Les Dawson, had announced that she had gone into labour earlier that morning, on social media.
She had shared a snap from her hospital bed, with her fiancé by her side after a night of trying to kickstart labour.
The day before, on her due date, Charlotte, updated her Instagram followers after going for a sweep with her midwife.
She was told her baby’s reduced movements and gestational diabetes complications may lead to an induction.
Ready to rumble: Matt also shared this snap of Charlotte shortly before the birth
In labour: Matt shared this snap hours before Charlotte gave and wrote: ‘We’re all set ready for our little man! Charlotte’s waters broke at 4.30’
Charlotte’s at-home techniques of eating a spicy Nandos and having sex did the trick though as hours later, she shared that she was in labour.
‘I did it … just in labour my darlings. I can’t believe I did most of it at home but thankyou for all your messages. Love you all,’ she wrote alongside the hospital snap
Matthew also gave an update, writing on his Instagram page: ‘Where all set ready for our little man! Charlottes waters broke at 4.30 so proud of my girl she’s a trooper ❤️’
He shared videos of Charlotte bouncing on her pregnancy ball in the early hours of Tuesday at home, and a second clip of her in hospital and using gas and air, writing ‘doing so well.’
The former Ex On The Beach star announced that she was expecting her first child with Matthew in August – just a month before they announced their engagement.
Speaking with OK! magazine, Charlotte said: ‘I might have liked to go out and have a good time, but I know I’m going to be an amazing mum and will do anything for my baby.’
Charlotte also revealed that her baby was due just a week before what would have been her late father Les’s 90th birthday, on February 2, 2021.

She said: ‘We went for the first scan and my due date is actually the week before, but there’s every chance I could give birth on his birthday. What a tribute that would be!’
She added: ‘He would’ve been the best grandfather. It’s bittersweet because he would have been here, making everyone laugh.’
A month later, Charlotte took to Instagram to share the news of her engagement, after her beau got down on one knee in front of Les’ statue at Memorial park in Lancashire.
The funnyman passed away from a heart attack in 1993 aged just 62 when she was just eight months old.

Brave: Charlotte revealed she felt ‘petrified and drained’ as she battled gestational diabetes during her pregnancy in November
At their baby shower, the daughter of late comedian Les Dawson told OK! magazine: ‘So excited, we’re having a chuffing boy! We’re having a mini Matt! A mini Matt and a mini Les together!
‘I just am so excited to have a boy! So excited! A mummy’s boy!’
In November, Charlotte revealed she was feeling ‘petrified and drained’ as she battled gestational diabetes during her pregnancy.
Charlotte, who was 31 weeks pregnant at the time, shared a selfie lying in bed as she revealed diabetes has caused her to be frightened of what she is eating, while admitting she felt scared in the final weeks of her pregnancy.
She wrote: ‘I’m struggling….this is my reality face today!! I’m so hormonal it’s a joke I’ve not stopped crying & working myself up, I’m petrified, I’m drained.. I’m hardly eating cos I’m so scared of eating the wrong thing & spiking my blood sugar levels..
‘I’m hoping this gestational diabetes has something to do with how I’m feeling… the reason I’ve posted this … the truth is I’m not going to sugar coat how I’m feeling because I’d be lying to you all..
‘I show you all how fabulous everything is in my life… some days are so down & you ask me how and why I look so good all the time .. well the truth is it isn’t all fabulous…
‘But I’m feeling guilty for feeling like this I’m so blessed lucky and soooo positive normally. Feeling like this is sooo hard.
‘It’s mentally & physically stressful, I have so much ahead of me so much to do, my anxiety is taking over! I’m trying so hard to snap myself out of it but the only thing snapping me out of it is knowing there’s only 9 weeks left until we get to meet our angel…
Struggle: She wrote: ‘I’m struggling….this is my reality face today!! I’m so hormonal it’s a joke I’ve not stopped crying & working myself up, I’m petrified, I’m drained..’
‘But this story time is also about hospital bag & what to pack in it.. I asked all you lovely lot this week what I need to pack and you were soooo helpful and you all asked me to share what they said!!
‘So hopefully everything I say will help my fellow mamas… we’ve got this, thank you so much for all your love & support love you all… appreciate you all so much xxxx.’
‘You’re worth all of this x love u all I need to remember everything will be ok stop putting so much pressure on myself & I’m too glam to give a chuffin damn x.’
Charlotte later posted a video in which she gave her followers an update on her pregnancy journey and said she had been ‘crying all the time’ as she prepares to become a mum.
She typed: ‘Ere we chuffin are.. that time of the week!! I mean I’ve had a weird week… it’s gone from my midwife saying his growth has gone smaller then his movements going quiet again then to me struggling so much with my gestational diabetes I’m scared to eat in case I eat the wrong thing & spike my blood sugar levels…
‘But so glad I can raise awareness for it !!!! I’ve had one of those days today… and it’s ok to be like & feel this, I’m only human and I’m going to be a mum!! It’s scary, nerveracking, daunting emotional & exciting!!
The make-up artist then shared a poem sent to her by a friend describing the qualities of people named Charlotte, including being ‘genuine, down-to-earth, happy and trustworthy.
Glow: Charlotte posing in a glamorous dress with Matt while pregnant with her first baby
The TV personality and rugby league player Matthew have been together for four years, with the couple recently buying a house.
Earlier this year, they appeared on Celebs Go Dating to work out a few issues in their relationship, but insist that it made them even stronger.
Now that they’re expecting their own child, the couple say the timing feels perfect after originally trying for a baby last year.
It hasn’t been the easiest of years for the Dawson family with Charlotte’s brother-in-law Glen Southern passing away after taking his own life in June.
Speaking candidly with OK!, pregnant Charlotte explained that she had shown Glen her scan picture just three days before he died.
