Peaky Blinders star Sophie Rundle has announced the birth of her baby boy.

Rundle, who played Ada Shelby, shared a sweet Instagram post introducing fans to her new son.

"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," she wrote in the caption.

The baby is Rundle's second son, and the actor shared that she enjoys dressing the newborn in his brother's old clothes.

"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 every time 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. ✨"

She added: "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. ❤️"

Alongside the caption, the actor posted a photo cuddling her new baby, and another showing the side of the baby's face and his tiny hand.

The comments were flooded with congratulations, including a comment from Peaky Blinders' Kate Dickie, who played Mother Superior. She wrote: "ohh enjoy enjoy enjoy!"

Earlier this year, Rundle starred in the crime drama After the Flood. The series followed police officer Joanna Marshall (Rundle) as she tried to solve the death of an unidentified man, following a natural disaster.

Digital Spy's review called Rundle's casting: "one of After the Flood's best decisions," adding: "her on-screen mother, played by Lorraine Ashbourne, is also there to prove that it's women who get shit done."

Peaky Blinders is available to stream on BBC iPlayer and Netflix. After the Flood is available to stream on ITVX.
