Casey Batchelor gives birth! Model welcomes her third daughter with fiancé Dane Goodson

Casey Batchelor has given birth to her third daughter in three years with fiancé Dane Goodson.

The glamour model, 36, took to Instagram on Monday to share the exciting news about her baby’s arrival via C-section.

Revealing she had welcomed a little girl, the doting mother wrote: ‘We now have three little princesses,’ alongside three separate photos of each of her daughters’ tiny hands. Casey had sweetly numbered each photo, and written above them: ‘And then there were three.’

Former Celebrity Big Brother star Casey had been documenting her pregnancy on social media and is also a mother to her older children Florence, three, and Sadie, 16 months. 

The doting mother’s famous friends were quick to share their congratulations, with Georgie Shore’s Vicky Pattison writing: ‘Huge congrats baby girl,’ while Danielle Armstrong added: ‘Awe, congratulations my darling.’

The yoga teacher first confirmed her pregnancy to OK! magazine in February, insisting that although she’ll have a ‘crazy’ household to manage, she feels ‘happy and fortunate’ at how easy she they have found it to conceive.  

The brunette previously confessed she wants to have a son, reasoning: ‘It would be lovely to have a boy, because we have two girls. But three girls would be amazing because it would a girl gang and Dane would be the king of the castle.’

Casey also revealed why she planned a C-section after a horrific experience giving birth to first daughter Florence – suffering pain that was equivalent to a brain tumour. 

The reality star explained: ‘I had to have an epidural at 8.5 cm because my body was going into so much shock. I was just having fits and being sick all over myself, because I had no breaks between contractions.

‘I’m 36 now and by the time I’ve had the next one it’ll be like I’ve spent my whole 30s pregnant.’

The TV star, who has suffered from fatigue and swelling over the past couple of months, defended having her kids within a three-year span as she insisted she’s used to ‘disrupted sleep and early mornings’. 

The fitness enthusiast added that she’s open to expanding her family and is planning to walk down the aisle by the time she’s 40 amid her two-year engagement to the office supply owner, also 36. 

Casey told The Sun: ‘If we do have the fourth I would have spent the whole of my thirties being pregnant.  

‘It will be quite nice to have some normality back in my forties. I can’t wait to get married. I want all the children at the wedding.

‘Whether we go for a fourth one will determine when the wedding happens. I said I want to be married by the time I am 40. When you are in that baby mode, you are used to disrupted sleep, used to early mornings.’  

Earlier this year, Casey shared her thoughts about using gender selection, insisting she ‘wouldn’t mess with nature’.

She also said having two such young children had left her at the point of a breakdown: ‘I felt really, really bad. Some days I would just sit there and cry.’ 

The Yoga Blitz founder told new! magazine: ‘I mentioned once that people had suggested we should do gender selection and a clinic approached me on Instagram but I feel like we should do what’s natural. I feel it’s messing with nature.’

Aside from her plans for more babies, Casey has spoken at length about her body and changes in her shape since becoming a mother. 

The former FHM star shed a staggering 2st 7lbs following the birth of Sadie, and 6.5st over the course of her first two pregnancies.

Casey claimed she believed she’d ‘never thought I’d see abs again’ after having Sadie, stating: ‘Some lockdown inspo for you! I never thought I’d see abs again after having my first bubba.  

‘I know how tough it can be when you feel like your body is not your own any more. But taking that first step is the best thing – and then just keeping on keeping on! 

‘I don’t think anyone else had ever thought of putting yoga with HIIT but that combo of yoga and high intensity exercise really worked for me – not just once but twice now after having my second princess!’
