Candice Accola has given birth to her first child.

The Vampire Diaries actress - who plays Caroline Forbes on the CW show - and her husband Joe King welcomed Florence May King together earlier this month and have just announced the birth on Instagram.

They shared a picture of the baby's feet resting on a blanket which had the words "Florence May King, born Jan. 15, 2016", embroidered on it in pink.

Candice, 28 and Joe, 35, tied the knot in 2014 in New Orleans, the year after they got engaged.

While this is Candice's first baby, her Fray singer husband has two daughters, Ava and Elise, from a previous marriage.

The couple announced Candice's pregnancy in August with a sweet Instagram snap.

The picture showed Joe and his two daughters pointing at Candice's baby bump and was accompanied by a caption revealing the big news.

Candice wrote: "Sometimes a Saturday is best spent painting t-shirts and taking an awesome family photo. Happy Monday everybody! #ThatAintNoBurritoinMyBelly Thank you to our friend @softspiritstrong for coming over and snapping this sweet pic."
