Holly only started her maternity leave from This Morning on September 18. It was thought her baby was due in October.
Holly and Dan, who married in 2007, announced they were expecting another child in March.
Holly wrote at the time: "Surprise Surprise (and it was a surprise!!) I'm really happy and excited to tell you that Dan and I are expecting baby number 3!! (sic)."
Last year, Holly said: "I would like another baby, so let's wait and see. I've always thought I'd have a big family so if I'm lucky enough to fall pregnant again, great.
"It's just a question of when and if it happens. You can't set aside time specially."
According to our Baby Names Generator, Chester means 'lives at the camp of soldiers' and William means 'resolute protector'. The couple also have five-year-old son Harry and three-year-old daughter Belle together.
