Bake Off host Noel Fielding has welcomed a second baby girl.

The TV star’s partner Lliana Bird revealed the happy news on Instagram by sharing an adorable Halloween-themed picture of four spiders made from pipe cleaners and mic covers.

The DJ told her followers: “The Bird Fielding family of 4 (finally figured out what to do with all my old mic covers!) #halloweencrafts."

Fans rushed to congratulate the couple on their lovely news and one person asked who the spiders represented.

Bird – who is already mum to daughter Dali with Fielding – replied, confirming that the couple have named their new arrival Iggy.

“Noel is pink, Dali is orange, I’m grey and Iggy is red,” she said.

"Thank you, she's a sweet bean," she said in response to all the messages.

In August, Bird confirmed that they were expecting their second child together.

Writing on Instagram, the baking fan said she had started maternity leave from her presenting slot on RadioX.
