The former reality star concluded: ‘There is nothing quite like this feeling I’m feeling and the moment. Happy, anxious, I can not express it’.

The newborn’s arrival comes just two months after Craig revealed he had lost his job and was in desperate need of work. 

‘This is extremely hard for me to do but I’m swallowing my pride and asking for help,’ he wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post back in October.

‘If anyone could please help me find some work in the mining industry doing FIFO or knows anyone that could help me get a start I would be forever grateful.’

‘My baby is due in just two months and I’m worried that I won’t be able to find work and support my family,’ he added.
