Brian Dowling and Arthur Gourounlian have said they are “absolutely madly in love” with their new baby girl, Blake.

The Big Brother star and his Dancing With The Stars judge, who welcomed the arrival of their first child on Thursday, made the excited announcement in a joint Instagram statement on Saturday.

They wrote: “Please stand tall for the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blake Maria Rose Dowling Gourounlian. Yes folks another BDG.

“Blake was safely delivered Thursday September 1st at 2:52pm weighing 7lbs 4oz. We are absolutely madly in love with her and can’t believe she’s here and ours,” alongside a heart, lips and rose emoji.

“None of this would have been possible without our donor, a woman we have never met or even seen a picture of, but who has given us the gift of life.

Brian, whose younger sister Aoife acted as the couple’s surrogate, added: “Well, where do we even start with you? [Aoife] You are a saint to us and we will forever be grateful to you for the rest of our lives. Baby Blake can’t wait for her Aunt Aoife to spoil her #babyishere #fatherhood #littleprincess.”

Fans and friends flocked to the comments section to express their enthusiasm for the happy couple.

Donal Skehan explained: “Hello Baby Blake you little beauty. Can’t wait to meet her – congratulations!”

Bonnie Ryan: “Congratulations! And what a beautiful name.”

Una Healy said, “She’s here!! Congratulations.”

Sosume’s Suzanne Jackson said: “Awh this is amazing!! Welcome Baby Blake!!! Congratulations xx.”

Arthur and Brian married at the posh Powerscourt Hotel in 2015.

It was recently announced that the couple’s journey to parenthood will be featured in an RTE TV show called ‘A Very Modern Irish Family – Brian and Arthur’s Surrogacy Story’.

The show follows the couple and Brian’s little sister Aoife, who acts as their surrogate, as they prepare to welcome their much-desired tot.

The series follows the ups and downs of their journey, from glitzy baby showers and shopping sprees to the harsh reality of no surrogacy legislation in Ireland.

The couple recently expressed how they were “so ready” for the upcoming arrival.

Taking to Instagram, Brian said: “And just like that it’s September 1st.

“This is the month we @gourounlian meet our little baby Dowling Gourounlian.

“I recently debated actually naming the baby ‘baby.’

“Let’s see what this little Virgo will bring into our lives.

“Apparently Virgos are humble, practical, kind and personable, and quick thinkers too, so clearly nothing like Arthur & me.

“We’re both twins just like @effidy_dowling_ so it’s about time we mixed things up in the Dowling Gourounlian household.

“All we do on a daily basis now is imagine what you will look like.

“All parents want a happy, healthy baby. We are so ready to meet you.”

Arthur replied, “Don’t be long our little maiden, we are sooo ready for you.” Brian Dowling and Arthur Gourounlian are “absolutely madly in love” with new baby Blake
