April Oliver, from Fincham in Norfolk, uploaded an image of her cradling a baby on her Facebook page on Father’s Day.

Miss Oliver announced her pregnancy in January, four months after Mr McKeague vanished.

The RAF gunner, 23, went missing on a night out in Bury St Edmunds, with a search of a landfill site ongoing.

Corrie McKeague: What we know about the disappearance.

Miss Oliver said she discovered she was pregnant with Mr McKeague’s baby two weeks after his disappearance.

The pair met on a dating site and had been in a relationship for five months before Mr McKeague - originally from Dunfermline in Fife - went missing from his base at RAF Honington in Suffolk.

Mr Mckeague had been out with friends in September when he went missing and was last seen entering a bin loading bay.

A waste disposal lorry collected a bin from that area less than an hour after Mr McKeague was spotted on CCTV.

Specialist officers began sifting through waste in March at the landfill site in Milton, Cambridgeshire, where they believe his body may be.
