Holby City star Camilla Arfwedson has given birth to her first child.
The actress, 40, took to Instagram on Friday to share the happy news that she has welcomed a baby boy called Auro with her husband Jack Hawkins.
The soap star – who played Dr Zosia March on the medical drama – captioned a picture of her bundle of joy: ‘3 weeks of Baby Auro!’
It was only last month that the star revealed she was pregnant as she showed off her bump while heading to her baby shower.
Revealing she only had two weeks to go until the birth of her child, she told how she had wanted to keep the majority of her pregnancy private.
She looked glowing in a floaty blue dress which she teamed with comfy trainers while accessorising with a leopard print headband.
She penned in the caption: ‘I always thought pregnancy is an incredibly private journey.
‘I have resisted sharing mine on social media but with two weeks to go til we meet our little boy I thought why not.
‘Plus some incredibly thoughtful pals decided to throw me a ‘low key’ surprise baby shower which was not low key at all (looking at you @jahjahwalsh @oliwalsh @jasonstraker @jimmyslocum @charlotteelliswatson)
In 2019 Camilla married Call The Midwife’s Jack quietly, having been an item for three years.
The couple kept their union low-key – seemingly tying the knot in October that year in an under-the-radar ceremony.
The pair met in 2016 when Jack, now 36, was ‘treated’ by Camilla who plays Dr Zosia March.
She left the show – with Dr March disappearing off to the USA – but then returned – with a new, off-screen husband.
Casually dropping into conversation that she and Jack tied the knot, Camilla told The Sun: ‘It’s nice to be back for a couple of months. I love it on Holby.
‘I wanted to try something else. And we also got married. It was a low-key ceremony in London but it was really lovely. It was great.’
Jack plays dentist Christopher Dockerill in Call The Midwife and dates Trixie [Helen George] on the series.
Camilla’s Holby character made a comeback, pregnant – having been last seen leaving her husband in the UK.
‘Viewers won’t know who the father is but a handsome American doctor also turns up. Everyone thinks it’s his child,’ it was teased by the actor.
The return of Dr March came after her stint on the show thus far has tackled the character’s struggle with bipolar disorder.
In the show, she became an excessive drinker and took drugs – and the story line explored the stigma attached to the illness and treatment involving lithium. This, in turn, was praised by mental health charities and organisations.
The actress announced last September that she was reprising the role – but it is said to only be for a limited time as a guest star.
Executive Producer Simon Harper said that the character was returning because of ‘popular demand’.
