“The love of our lives,” she captioned the photo. “Our darling boy Forest Jack Moggs is here and arrived weighing 8.5lbs.

“We couldn’t be more in love with this beautiful little soul.”

Esther announced the exciting news of her pregnancy back in April and told New Idea that she and husband of a year were “so ready for parenthood”.

The actress ended up falling pregnant right in the middle of filming for a movie, and revealed the couple hadn’t actually been trying for a baby.

“It was mind-blowing!” she said. “There were lots of tears – oh yes – and at our first ultrasound when we saw the baby’s heartbeat.”

The pair met in Los Angeles in 2014.

Esther relocated to the USA following her stint on Home and Away as police officer Charlie Buckton.
