Former Neighbours favourite Tim Robards is officially a dad following the birth of his baby daughter.

He wrote: "I've fallen in love twice all over again with these two!!! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE our little Elle Robards. How bloody amazing!!!! I never knew my wife was a superhero... What a woman!!"

Tim and Anna's friends and followers were quick to pass on their congrats to the couple in the comments section.

"So happy for you guys! Can't wait to meet her!" responded one user, while another added: "Congratulations mate, and @annaheinrich1 of course. So happy for you both. She's beautiful!"

It comes after Robards left Neighbours in August due to changing travel restrictions in Australia, choosing to fly back to Sydney from Melbourne to be with his wife ahead of the birth.
