Shana Swash, a former EastEnders star and sister of Joe Swash, has given birth to her first child.
Confirming the joyous news on social media, the Demi Miller actress, 33, shared a black and white snap of the little one alongside her fiancé Nick Jones snuggling up to their little one.
She penned: ‘Kitty Frances Swash Jones 18.12.2023.’
Fellow celebrities and fans rushed to congratulate Shana including actress Kate Dickie replying: ‘ohh congrats! So delighted for you! Biggest hugs and love .’
@Emilygracebutton added: ‘Huge Congratulations to you both She’s perfect xxx.’
The actress played the role of Demi in the BBC One soap, who gave birth when she was 13 years old in a controversial storyline in the early 2000s.
After living with the Miller family on Albert Square for two years, Shana was written off the show in 2006 when Demi moved to the Cotswolds to live with her mother.
Shana, who is currently engaged to partner Nick, frequently shares updates about her life on social media. She talks about her activities outside of the spotlight and her career as an actress, which she began after leaving EastEnders. Shana has starred in several short films, including Top Boy and Doctors.
From 2004 to 2006, the actress played Demi in EastEnders.
She was a favorite of the audience, and when word spread that her part would be reduced on the program, supporters launched an online petition to keep her on the show.
Shana, along with her on-screen mother Gerry Cowper (Rosie Miller), did, however, leave the show.
Shana recently changed the course of her career by launching her own company and setting up a pop-up coffee shop in North London.
“Lockdown gave me the motivation to step outside of my comfort zone and launch my own business. I fell deeply in love with coffee.” She revealed to The Sun.
To be honest, I have enjoyed every second of it. I am the sole operator, managing it full-time on a daily basis and serving as your neighborhood barista in a park close to my childhood home.
I’ve been able to make a lot of friends and meet a lot of people thanks to it, including the ardent EastEnders fans.
