Charley Webb took to Instagram recently to share an adorable new picture of her son Ace, who was born in July. She also announced that she and her family have decided to store her new baby's stem cells.

Charley Webb, who we all know as "Debbie Dingle" in Emmerdale, recently shared another cute picture of her third son Ace on Instagram, just a couple of days after giving fans a glimpse at her new baby. The gorgeous picture shows little Ace lying in his cot. The actress, who plays "Debbie Dingle", also broke the news that she has - together with her family - decided to store Ace's stem cells.

We decided to store Ace's stem cells. As parents every single one of us wants to do what's best for our children. When I was pregnant, I heard about the possibility of collecting and storing my baby's umbilical cord stem cells, which could then be used in the future should they be needed for treatment (I hope with every part of me we never need it). After researching, we learned that the baby's umbilical cord is a valuable source of stem cells, and these cells can be collected at birth and stored. These could then be used as a crucial part of treating or curing an illness. Currently, there are over 80 diseases cord blood stem cells can treat. I decided to use Smart Cells to store the stem cells: the process was easy (genuinely) and they organised everything. Like I said, we hope we never need to use them, but it's comforting to know that we have them stored if we ever do. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I'm so grateful we were able to do this. Xx
