Esther, 43, announced his arrival on Instagram with a sweet snap of the newborn wrapped up in a blanket.

“Our little love is here. ‘Ralph Harlan Moggs’ came into our world on 28/09/2022 at 4.48am,” she wrote in the caption.

“He is so incredibly loved by mum, dad and big brother Forest. Words can’t describe how special you are Ralph!!!! My heart is the fullest. Thank you darling boy.”


The star is best known for portraying Charlie Buckton on Home and Away, with her pairing with Darryl Braxton (Steve Peacocke) still a firm fan-favourite romance.

Her Summer Bay family sent their love by commenting on her post, with Luke Mitchell (Romeo Smith) and Lynne McGranger (Irene Roberts) sending heart emojis.

“Heaven. Congratulations darling,” Georgie Parker (Roo Stewart) wrote on the post.

“He’s so adorable. Congratulations,” added Ada Nicodemou (Leah Patterson).

“Congrats Mamma! He is perfect!” Rebecca Breeds (Ruby Buckton) chimed in.

“Congratulations honey!!! He is so so beautiful! Big love to you all xxxx,” Christie Hayes (Kirsty Phillips) wrote.

Esther previously shared a photo of her very pregnant belly a week ago, saying that she was already past her due date.

She shared with her followers all the tricks she was using to help her little one find his way out.

“Forest was 10 days past due date so we be dancing, visualising, acupuncture(ing), spicyfoodeating [sic], hypnobirthing, walking stair climbing, bumping our way to your safe arrival baby Moggs. We can’t wait to meet you!!” she quipped in the caption.

She also admitted that she was ‘nervous’ about having two children as she wasn’t sure how her oldest son Forest would cope.

“I love these pics with my little guy. Not long now till my attention will be divided…I think that’s what I’m probably most nervous about! And excited! For now, just making the most of all our special one on one time. Love you Forry,” she wrote.
