TVNZ presenter Renee Wright has marked her baby daughter Lucciana's first week with a series of sweet photos.

Wright shared several snaps of the new addition to her family posing with each of her siblings.

"1 week of deliciousness," she wrote alongside the post.

"Lucciana Alessandra, you are so loved," she added, tagging her husband Charlie Waide in the post.

Wright earlier shared some snaps of baby Lucciana last week after announcing her arrival.

Wright captioned the photos of little Lucciana, dressed in a soft pink knitted number with matching hat and tiny appliquéd roses, "Home time ... All dressed up and snug as a bug thanks to Nanny Neen for her exquisite knitting xxx".

Friends and followers have been quick to share their delight in the images, which include a snap of Waide carrying his daughter in her capsule through hospital.

Coast radio host Toni Street wrote of the couple's fourth child: "She is so beautiful, and those lips ..." while others commented with similar sentiments calling the wee girl "adorable" "gorgeous" and "pure deliciousness".

To announce the Sunday arrival of their "precious wee girl", yesterday Wright shared an intimate image of herself holding her new daughter to Instagram and wrote: "LUCCIANA ALESSANDRA WAIDE ... Has arrived 27/06/22 ... We are so in love with our precious wee girl."

Followers shared their joy and well wishes for the now mother-of-four, including broadcaster PJ Harding who commented: "So beautiful Renee congratulations" and influencer Makaia Carr who wrote: "Awwwww congratulations whānau".

TVNZ colleague Melissa Stokes shared: "Welcome Little Lucciana! We are so excited you are here. Looking good mama. X".

The family's precious fourth addition follows a tragic miscarriage early last year.

In March Wright told Woman's Day that losing her baby at the beginning of 2021 was a traumatic experience. She said she wanted to speak out about what she went through in the hope it would make others feel less alone.

"I do think it's important to talk about this because it happens to so many women, yet it's often kept a secret, which can feel so lonely and isolating," she told Woman's Day.
