Ratajkowski has previously said they would be raising their child in a gender-neutral household.

Fellow models Martha Hunt, Kate Bosworth and Ashley Graham were among those sending their congratulations to the new mother.

Ratajkowski announced in October last year that she was expecting her first child with Bear-McClard, a film producer.

She made the announcement in a video with Vogue magazine, showing off her growing baby bump in footage directed by TV writer Lena Dunham.

The London-born actress – who has starred in films including Gone Girl and I Feel Pretty – found fame when she appeared in the video for Robin Thicke’s 2013 single Blurred Lines.

The couple married in a ceremony at New York City Hall in 2018 and celebrated their honeymoon in Utah.
