Rebel Wilson has announced that she has become a mother after welcoming a baby girl.
The Pitch Perfect star shared a photo of the newborn – who was born last week, via a surrogate – on her Instagram page on Monday afternoon.
“Beyond proud to announce the birth of my first child, Royce Lillian, born this past week via surrogate,” Rebel told her followers.
“I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle!”
She continued: “I am forever grateful to everyone who has been involved, (you know who you are), this has been years in the making… but particularly wanted to thank my gorgeous surrogate who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care.
“Thank you for helping me start my own family, it’s an amazing gift. The BEST gift!! I am ready to give little Roycie all the love imaginable.”
The Australian actor added: “I am learning quickly…much respect to all the Mums out there! Proud to be in your club.”
The Bridesmaids received a wave of support from her celebrity friends after the announcement, with Taika Waititi – who directed Rebel in Jojo Rabbit – commenting: “Yes Rebz, congrats.”
Alison Brie also sent her congratulations, while Melanie Griffith shared a string of heart emojis under her fellow actor’s post.
Rebel is best known for her performance in comedy films like Bridesmaids, Isn’t It Romantic and the Pitch Perfect series, as well as the musical Cats.
Earlier this year, she shared that she is in a relationship with fashion designer Ramona Agruma, more recently calling out an Australian newspaper she claims tried to “out” her.
