Big Brother star Brian Dowling and husband Arthur Gourounlian have welcomed the arrival of their “beautiful daughter” and praised her sister who was their surrogate.

Dowling shared an image of the couple with their newborn in the hospital and revealed his name in an Instagram post.

“Please be on your feet for the arrival of our BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER Blake Maria Rose Dowling Gourounlian. Yes people another BDG,” the 44-year-old said.

He said “Blake was delivered safely” on Thursday and weighed 7 pounds 4 ounces.

Dowling’s sister Aoife acted as a surrogate for the new parents and has been described as a ‘saint’.

“You are an absolutely amazing human,” he said.

“From our first joking conversations about it in 2015 when you moved in with us in London to our more serious discussions about it in January 2021 in the midst of the pandemic when we were going for our daily walks. It’s been going on for years.”

He went on to praise his sister’s dedication which he said was “out of this world”.

“You also came forward publicly for everyone to voice your opinion on this and you never wavered. Even the despicable/disgusting messages we all received just encouraged us to be more open about our motherhood journey of substitution.”

He ended his tribute by saying, “You are not only my sister or Arthur’s sister-in-law, you are AN ANGEL and also our BEST FRIEND.”

He also thanked the donor.

“None of this would have been possible without our donor, a woman we have never met or even seen in pictures but who gave us the GIFT OF LIFE.”

Dowling rose to fame after competing in the second series of Big Brother which he won.
