The Emmerdale actress, 31, was inundated with congratulatory messages from her followers on the image-sharing site, after announcing the arrival of ‘BaByWoLf #3’ with her husband and co-star Matthew Wolfenden.
Uploading a black-and-white snapshot of her bundle of joy’s torso and hand – as well as a white baby-grow emblazoned with the words ‘Baby Wolf’, she wrote: ”BaByWoLf #3′ has joined the crazy gang. We’re in a bubble of newborn’ness heaven.’

In the weeks before her baby’s arrival, Charley revealed that she she was in ‘agony’ due to a painful pelvic condition.
The actress, who had been suffering from crippling morning sickness, revealed she has also been diagnosed with Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction.
The condition made her muscles relax too much ahead of her birth and caused extreme pain when she moved her legs.

She told OK! Magazine in June: ‘I still get waves of sickness but I’ve also been diagnosed with SPD. It’s when your muscles have relaxed too much ready for the birth. It’s agony.’
Symptoms include back, hip and pelvis pain, which is made worse by walking, going up or down stairs or moving around in bed.
Charley welcomed her third child with husband and co-star Matthew Wolfenden, and previously revealed she was keen to give birth in a hospital rather than at home ‘for the sake of [her] own anxiety’.
The Debbie Dingle actress – who also has children Buster, nine, and three-year-old Bowie with the David Metcalfe star – said: ‘Matthew’s up for a home birth but I’d like to be in a hospital for the sake of my own anxiety, in case anything went wrong.’

Charley admitted that she found pregnancy ‘amazing’, but wasn’t a massive fan of her body ‘getting bigger’.
She added: ‘I’d be lying if I said I really enjoy the experience of getting bigger. But I appreciate what my body is doing. I think pregnancy is amazing.’
Matthew recently admitted he was looking forward to the ‘chaos’ of having another child.
He said: ‘We’ve always wanted a big family. It feels different this time as it feels like we’re going from a family to a gang. We’re looking forward to the chaos another child will bring.’
Ahead of the birth, the happy couple revealed that they were yet to find out the sex of their baby, with Charley admitting she didn’t mind whether she had a boy or a girl.
She said: ‘Buster was so desperate for Bowie to be a boy and he was, so it would be nice to have that same thing for Bowie.
‘It doesn’t matter to me at all. I’m used to boys and I always thought I’d have three boys and a girl, in that order. That’s my instinct but who knows.’
