Before sharing the news of her tot’s arrival online, Olivia admitted she was nervous about sharing snaps of her baby on social media.

she said OK!: “I know that if I have a baby I will be judged for everything I do.

“I’ve seen so many parents being judged for stupid things like whether or not they gave their baby a pacifier. I think I’ll be a little more nervous than usual to post things when the baby is here for that reason.”

Olivia remained positive, adding, “But at the end of the day, we’ll learn as we work, which Alex always reminds me of, and we’ll make mistakes, but we’ll learn as we go.”

The doting mum continued: “I really want to give our baby so much privacy during those first few months, but I know we will be the proudest parents and want to share the next step of parenthood with everyone. It does scares me how many creepy people are out there. We’ll just see how we feel over time.

As to whether more children are on the agenda for the couple, Olivia has previously revealed that she would like to have children of a similar age.

She told us, “I want two [kids] and I want them close by.”
