Irish actor Caitríona Balfe has announced the birth of her first child with her husband Tony McGill.

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, the Dublin and Monaghan native revealed the news with a black and white snap of her baby’s tiny hand.

Captioning the post, Caitríona wrote: “I’ve been off socials for a while as I was taking some time to enjoy cooking up this little human.

“We are so grateful for this little soul... that he chose us as his parents. I’m in awe of him already and can’t help stare and wonder at all the possibilities of who he will become, where he will go and what he’ll do on the big adventure of his life.

“Right now he seems so small and fragile and I constantly think how grateful I am that I live in a place, in a time where he is born into peace and safety and yet at the same time I see so many in the world right now that aren’t afforded that same privilege and opportunity... who are born into famine or war and how unjust it is that the same safety isn’t there for all children.

“Here in the west we have so much, we are so lucky and so if you’d like to join me in supporting any of the wonderful charities that need help trying to give those that are forgotten dignity and hope, we can give the gift of peace and safety and opportunity to a few more children,” the 41-year-old added, tagging World Child Cancer, Choose Love, Unicef, and the UN Refugee Agency.

The Outlander actor and former model married her music producer beau at St. Mary’s Church in Bruton, Somerset in 2019.

Tony popped the question in 2018 after two years of dating.

The couple are notoriously private and are rarely photographed in public together.
