She wrote: "We're super excited to share with you, that our baby girl will be joining us in September."

Zoe and Alfie have been together for a long time and celebrated their eight-year anniversary in October last year – the couple have also lived together in Brighton for a number of years.

Zoe gained major popularity on YouTube under her original online username Zoella, which she has since built into a major lifestyle brand that includes a blog and a range of merchandise and products. Alfie also runs his own YouTube page that was first known as Pointless Blog.

Alfie also posted a video on his Instagram page, which saw the YouTubers looking at their baby scan photos. Alongside the clip, he posted the same caption as Zoe.

There were huge amounts of well wishes for the family from both viewers, family and friends. Strictly Come Dancing star Dianne Buswell was among those sending messages of congratulations to the couple – Dianne is in a relationship with Zoe's brother Joe Sugg.

Commenting on Alfie's post, she wrote: "Can't wait to teach her to dance if she wants of course."
