And her name makes us think she's going to be a daddy's girl.

It seems that former AFL champ Brendan Fevola is destined to be surrounded by women after his fiance Alex Fevola gave birth to their fourth daughter.

A c-section was scheduled for 8am Wednesday morning and the proud dad called his radio co-hosts Fifi Box and Byron Cooke to share the happy news.

The first snap of Baby Fevola being held in Brendan's arms was shared on Fifi, Fev and Byron's official Instagram account and the little bub is the spitting image of her dad! The retired footy star also shared an adorable snap of his youngest child all wrapped up in her blanket at the hospital and gazing up at the camera.

"Hi World .... @alexfevolamakeup your a super human mumma ❤️ mum and baby are flying #love #family #daughters #itsagirlsworld," he captioned it.

"She has a huge head of hair. You should see how much hair she's got, it's amazing," Fev gushed on the phone to his co-hosts.

"She looks like me a bit, wish she had got Alex's genes but she's super cute. She's a little mini me with her fat cheeks!"

The 2015 I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here winner is clearly riding high on cloud nine and called fatherhood "the most amazing feeling of all time" and praised his fiance who at that moment was recovering from the birth.

"Alex was amazing, a little trooper," Fev said.

The former footy star shared some behind the scenes snaps via his Instagram stories as well, including one of the expectant dad dressed for the operating theatre and captioning it, "It's go time."

But when quizzed about the new baby's name, Fifi and Byron weren't sure whether to be happy or if the new dad was pulling their leg when it was revealed that she was called Brenda.

"If we'd had a boy it would have been called Brendan," Fev told his on-air team.

Mum-to-be Alex shared her last bump photo at 27 weeks and confessed she thought it would be a big baby saying, "27 weeks and feel like I'm full term."

Well seeing as she looks just like her dad, we feel Brenda is a pretty appropriate name!

Brendan, 37, and Alex, 41, are already the proud parents to Leni, 12, and Lulu, eight, while Brendan is the stepfather to Mia from Alex's previous relationship.

Brendan and Alex first married in 2005 but ended their on-again-off-again nine-year marriage in 2014. Thankfully, they reconciled in 2016 and announced their engagement that same year. The couple had even more happy news when they found out they were expecting number four on a trip to the States.

Speaking on his radio show, Brendan said, "Alex was really sick over in America and she thought she was jet-lagged. I didn't think anything of it."

"(I said) have a drink, you'll be right. She said no I actually feel really sick."

"Anyway, I didn't think anything of it, you know, 'cause we got an 18 [year old]… we've got a 12-year-old and we have an eight-year-old. So we'd shut up shop, I didn't think it worked anymore, that it was all done and dusted."

"Then we got back on the Tuesday morning, and I was sitting on the couch watching the basketball, and Alex came in and sat down, and she had that look that I'd done something wrong. I was like, 'Oh, no.' She showed me the stick and said, 'We're having a baby.' I just couldn't stop laughing! Alex cried."
