A couple who met on Channel 4 series First Dates have welcomed the show's first ever baby.

Ibiba Mudada (28) and Aarron Stewart (32) had a baby girl, Aziza, last month, less than a year after being paired for a blind date on the hugely popular show.

Their episode aired in October last year and Ibiba was already pregnant at the time.  She becamse pregnant just seven weeks after their meeting.

“It’s true that our meeting and the speed with which we’ve started a family is certainly far from traditional," Ibiba told the Mail on Sunday.

“And it is hardly ideal to do everything so fast. But that is the nature of modern Britain. Things move at a much faster pace these days.”

Dad Aaron said their next plan is to buy a home and get married.  They share three children between them from previous relationships.

After meeting on the show they found out they lived just two minutes apart in Bristol and that Ibiba's mum and Aarron's dad had worked together for ten years.

Ibiba previously told the Sunday Mirror, "When I found out I was pregnant I wasn't sure how he'd react. It was so soon. We were getting into bed and I said, 'There's a baby in my belly - what's going on?' but he seemed really happy."
