A day after announcing the birth of her first child, former Married At First Sight star Beck Zemek has revealed her daughter's name and details of her labour.
The new mum, 29, took to Instagram Stories on Thursday to share that she and boyfriend Ben Michell had become parents.
Beck simply shared a black and white photo of her daughter's tiny hands, tagging Ben in the post.

Later that evening, Beck shared a reel detailing the birth and her bub's name. She revealed her daughter arrived on May 29 - meaning she kept the birth a secret for several days.
"Welcome to the world our gorgeous little girl... Immy Michell," she wrote over clips of her newborn bub swaddled in hospital.
"Our hearts are so full, we never knew there could be a love like this. Here's to the next chapter in our lives, the three of us."

Her labour lasted more than 30 hours, spanning across two days, and Beck revealed she spent hours vomiting at home before she went to hospital.
But it was all worth it to welcome her daughter, the proud new mum adding she'd never seen her partner Ben "so emotional" as when he met their baby girl.
It seems Beck went well past her expected due date, posting a week ago that she had reached 40 weeks.

"Each month has on average 30/31 days… except the last month of pregnancy which has 1431 😂," she joked.
Beck and Ben announced their pregnancy in December last year, telling fans they had kept the news "under wraps" since August.
The former MAFS star, who appeared on the 2021 season, shared a series of stunning photos of the pair walking on the beach at sunset, with her blossoming baby bump already showing.
"The secret is out. Ben and I are over the moon to finally announce we are expecting a bundle of joy in May 2022!" she wrote.
"Thankyou to everyone who has kept this a secret for such a long time!!! Also for all the wonderful support over the last few months, it truly means the world to us.
"Who knew the best was yet to come, this is such a miracle for us and we are already over filled with love for you little one."
Beck failed to find love on MAFS season eight, where she was unsuccessfully "married" to Jake Edwards.

The 28-year-old described her her time on the show as a "jail", telling So Dramatic that the pair tried to leave several times but producers didn't let them.
But the 28-year-old found her happily ever after with Ben in May last year year.
Beck and Ben reportedly first started dating back in June 2020, before she appeared on MAFS, but they later reconnected.
