Peaky Blinders actress Sophie Rundle has welcomed a baby boy - her second child with husband Matt Stokoe. The Ada Thorne actress announced the wonderful news as she shared some intimate snaps of the newborn on Sunday.

She wrote: "He's here. I am fully ready and expecting to nosedive off the hormonal cliff edge at any moment but for now I am riding this heavenly wave of perfect love. I only want to stay in this bed, tending to my exhausted happy bones, sniffing his delicious head and grandly announcing that he is wearing an archival look from the 2021 collection everytime I put him in one of his brother's old baby grows.

"'(I am perhaps a tad delirious at this point. ) Oh wow, the love the love the love. Special thanks to the incredible team at @stroudmaternity for bringing him here so safely and happily and for looking after us so expertly, we are so grateful."

The 35 year old actress confirmed she was expecting a baby when she appeared on The One Show in January. Sophie played the role of heavily pregnant PC Joanna Marshall in her thriller After The Flood which aired earlier this year in January.

She acted alongside her real-life husband, who played PC Marshall's police officer spouse Pat Holman in the series. On the BBC show, she said: "'I am now pregnant in real life.

"So this is starting to feel like the longest pregnancy any human woman has ever endured. I wasn't pregnant then, had a big fake bump and I think I was sort of put off when I had the fake bump then enough time had passed and now I'm going in for more."
