Emmerdale actress Natalie Anderson has given birth to her first baby.
Anderson, who plays Alicia Gallagher in the Dales drama, welcomed a son on August 1.
The actress and her husband James Shepherd have not revealed the baby's name, according to Hello magazine.
The Emmerdale press team tweeted: "Lovely baby news! @AndersonNatalie has given birth to a gorgeous boy! Congratulations Natalie and James."
Anderson announced in March that she was pregnant and confirmed that she was expecting a baby boy.
Alicia recently a prison sentence for attacking Val Pollard, which takes Anderson off screen while on maternity leave.
When she discovered her departure storyline, Anderson told the Sunday Mail: "I really thought they would say, 'She's gone off in a taxi to see her sister', something really normal, and that would be that.
"Then this elaborate story came about with a previous conviction and I was going, 'Thank you'. I just thought it was brilliant.
"I felt privileged they had thought of it that way. The producers have been amazing in the fact they have said I can take as long as I want to.
"I am not under any pressure. Personally, I love my job, and I am thinking maybe I want to come back towards the back end of the year."
