Outlander star Caitriona Balfe has welcomed a baby boy with her music producer husband Tony McGill after keeping her pregnancy hidden from fans.

The Irish actress, who plays Claire Fraser in the Starz series, revealed the happy news on Wednesday after making the surprise announcement on Instagram.

The 41-year-old posted a black and white shot showing her holding her baby’s hand as she opened up in a lengthy and impassioned caption.

The actress 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.’

She continued: ‘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 … @wchildcancer @chooselove @unicef @refugees 💙’.

Friend and fans alike were quick to congratulate the star, as TV presenter Angela Scanlon wrote: ‘Congratulations darling such gorgeous news x’

Love Island host Laura Whitmore commented: ‘Congrats ❤️’

Caitriona, who married Tony in 2019, just wrapped filming for Outlander season six in June, meaning she had successfully been keeping her baby news under wraps from fans near the set.
