In one picture she showed off her blossoming baby bump in black lace underwear as she posed for a mirror selfie. 

For another Ben snuggled up to his bundle of joy who looked adorable in a cream onesie. 

Other images featured their dog resting on Louisa’s bump and the tot sleeping next to Ben in bed.  

She captioned the slew of family snaps: ‘2021… The year I grew you Wishing you all a ❤️  Happy New Year ❤️  !’

It comes after earlier this month Louisa began to plan her wedding in Italy – after having to postpone the ceremony twice due to Covid.  

She looked in good spirits as she posed for an Instagram snap uploaded last Friday in the mediterranean country. 

The star was forced to cancel her wedding to fiancé Ben due to restrictions and then had a complicated pregnancy which led to a three-day-long labour and an emergency C-section.

Louisa looked cosy in the snaps as she wore a cream wool coat, black wide leg trousers and a grey jumper. 

She completed the look with an animal print fur hat, and she remarked in the caption alongside the snap ‘I know I know, I look like Jay Kay.’  

The brunette beauty also wrote: ‘Let the wedding planning commence.’  

Louisa and Ben are now planning on penciling in a date for the future, after postponing the 200-strong event twice during the coronavirus pandemic.

She told the Sunday Mirror about the growing family: ‘I’m an only child so I’ve said I’d like more than one. Ben has two siblings, so he’s always said three or four, although I don’t think that’s going to happen!’

She said about the wedding: ‘We want to get married next year. We’re planning to have the wedding abroad and we’re going to do something smaller than we originally planned.   

‘It will be different now she’s here. We’re a family now, so it might not be as wild as it was going to be. But we can’t wait to get married,’ she concluded.

Louisa announced her pregnancy in a heartwarming Mother’s Day post in March and unveiled her bump in a sweet video.

Scored with Stevie Wonder’s classic track, the screen star’s fun-filled footage showed the card she’d sent to her own mother, which read: ‘Just a little note to say, there’s a baby on the way.’

Their announcement video included footage of dad-to-be Ben reading a pregnancy book, while their adorable pet pooch sported a neckerchief, which read: ‘My parents are getting me a human.’
