The Teletubbies sun baby now has a baby of her own – and we officially feel old.

The noughties’ most famous child star, whose real name is Jess Smith, took to Instagram to share the happy news that she gave birth to her first child.

‘One whole week of you,’ she wrote, alongside a picture holding the newborn’s tiny hands.

Fans and friends alike rushed to congratulate Jess and her partner Ricky Latham.

‘Yay. The sun babies baby! Congratulation :)’ follower @sburns1992 wrote.

‘Congrats, Sunny ❤️ best wishes for you, husband and baby ❤️’ @jedkor2000 added.

Jess, who is now in her mid-twenties and worked for a security company, announced she was pregnant in October, sharing a picture of an ultrasound scan captioned: ‘When two becomes three.’

Jess revealed her toddler acting skills when she was 19 years old, after becoming the most recognisable baby in television when she was randomly picked by producers who called a local hospital asking for the names of potential tots for the role.

She announced at the time: ‘So I’ve recently celebrated my 19th birthday and after a lot of thought, I’ve decided it’s time to tell everyone.

‘I used to hide it but after a lot of encouragement from my friends at university I’ve gained the confidence to come out with it.

Jess admitted when she turned 19: ‘I am the sun from Teletubbies.’ (Picture: Instagram/Jess Smith)

‘I am the sun from Teletubbies.

‘There has been quite a few people pretending to be ‘the sun’ but only could tell you the real story.’

Jess explained that her big break came when she was around 9 months old, at a local hospital for a check up where a midwife submitted her name for a production company looking for ‘a smiley baby’.

‘While recording my dad held a teddy bear behind the camera to get me to laugh, and rolled a toy racing car to get me to look down at the camera, it obviously worked,’ she said.

Teletubbies is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
