‘Thank you to my handsome boy Callum for helping me make a gorgeous girl and thank you for supporting me through this absolute gorey horror story of birth. Only you BB.’
It was announced via the Daily Mail in October that Madeleine and Callum are set to wed, after the singer popped the question to her husband-to-be.
Madeleine revealed that her father was a little in the dark – and only learnt about her happy news when it was about to be publicised in print.
Madeleine said she had to hurriedly tell her dad about the engagement because she had already told the newspaper and it was about to be published.

Madeleine is to marry roofer Callum after she proposed to him on London’s South Bank – and nearly got arrested.
Despite being beaten to the news by the Mail, Adrian was delighted to learn that his daughter was getting married.
Madeleine said: ‘He said, ‘Of course I’m delighted. My baby daughter’s getting married!’
She added: ‘I was a little worried about the fact that I was the one who asked Callum to marry me, because Dad comes from a very traditional Irish background and I was concerned about what he would think.

‘But he had no issue with it. He knows me. He knows it’s the kind of thing I do!’
Madeleine told how she was down on one knee on a jetty on the Thames outside London’s Oxo Tower – where the couple had their first kiss – in June when security guards called the police, saying they were trespassing as the jetty was closed.
Madeleine, who recently released a single titled Manchild Apocalypse, said: ‘I was really nervous as I’d been waiting on this jetty for an hour.
‘Callum sat down next to me and I got out an Irish Claddagh ring from a jewellery bag.
‘But I was down on my knee declaring my love for this man when I heard a security guard shouting at us, telling us we were not supposed to be there and that they were calling the cops.’

She added: ‘I just started bawling. I was crying and crying and crying, because the moment was spoiled.
‘But Callum said, ‘Don’t worry. Yes, I will marry you’, and he let me put the ring on his finger.’
Madeleine, who met her fiance in June last year, said her mother, Dutch-Australian actress Anna Nygh, 73, wondered at first why she didn’t wait for Callum to pop the question.
But she said: ‘I think I preferred the special feeling of asking myself.’
