Harry Potter actress Jessie Cave has welcomed her third child with partner Alfie Brown.
The 33 year-old, who appeared in three films from the Harry Potter franchise, is already mum to Donnie, six, and daughter Margot, four, with comedian Brown, and posted the news of the 'extreme' birth to her Instagram account.
Cave - who is also a successful cartoonist and comedian - gave birth to baby boy Abraham in the early hours of Wednesday morning (21st October) and told her 139k followers that it was a 'humbling' and 'terrifying' experience.
Revealing that her newborn son had to be taken into the neonatal unit soon after the birth, she described it as 'one of the hardest moments of my life,' but explained that it was the safest place for her 'strong boy' right now.
She wrote: '❤️ Abraham “Bam” Benjamin ❤️ Our baby boy was born in the early hours yesterday morning just 40 mins after my waters were broken. Slightly extreme but so were his kicks throughout the pregnancy!
'This has been a very different experience to my first two births... much more humbling, terrifying and out of my control.'
Cave thanked the medical staff who had assisted her during the delivery, as well as Brown, who she said had been 'wonderful' throughout the traumatic process.
The couple have been together on and off for 6 years, after Cave found out she was pregnant with their first child Donnie after the pair shared a one night stand.
Their relationship has been the focus of two of Cave's one-woman shows, firstly 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe comedy hit I Loved Her, and then her sell-out show Sunrise (2018), where she explored their break-up and co-parenting life.
