Instead, Nichole panned the camera over an empty crib at the hospital along with a jovial caption. 

She wrote: ‘I know everyone is patiently waiting. Bubs and I are doing great, will post a photo of her soon’. 

Nichole also did not reveal the little one’s name, and appears to have given birth shortly before she made the post.

The former reality star split from her tradie boyfriend, Jake Yard, when she was 36 weeks pregnant with his child. 

She broke the shock news on Instagram earlier this month, describing the situation as ‘pretty s**t’ and ‘another f**king level of f**ked up.’

Confirming that the split was acrimonious, the expectant mother told fans:  ‘Just want to jump on and tell everyone that I’m in this situation and am OK as I can be, and thanks for all the messages.’

The blonde managed to hold back tears as she told fans she could ‘go into labour any moment’.  

‘I’m literally days off from having a baby and I’m [living] at my parents’ [home],’ she lamented. 

Shortly after her post, Nichole uploaded a photo of her latest sonogram to Instagram Stories, along with the heartbreaking caption: ‘I’m so glad that at least out of this I have you baby girl. Just you and me.’   

Nichole revealed she was expecting in May and told Daily Mail Australia that she had never expected to fall pregnant naturally with Jake, because she suffers from a hormonal condition that can affect menstrual cycles and fertility.

‘I didn’t find out until I was seven weeks, so it was pretty crazy and I wasn’t expecting it,’ she said.

‘I have something called [polycystic ovary syndrome] which is a sort of infertility that can make it harder to get pregnant, so I was shocked that I fell pregnant naturally.’ 

Nichole was one of the standout contestants on Matt Agnew’s season of The Bachelor last year.

She made it to the tenth episode of the series and is best known for arriving on a motorcycle to meet Matt on the first episode.
