Peaky Blinders star Sophie Rundle welcomes first baby with boyfriend Matt Stokoe

Peaky Blinders actress Sophie Rundle has given birth to her first child with partner Matt Stokoe.

Sophie, best known for playing Ada Shelby in the BBC drama, took to her Instagram account to break the news to her fans.

The 32-year-old confirmed the news by sharing a sweet snap on her main page on Sunday.

Sophie, who was recently rumoured to have married her other half, wrote alongside the image: "Our little boy, who arrived safely and happily over the Easter weekend and changed the game forever.

"My little egg. My overflowing, grateful heart."

In the picture, Sophie can be seen laying down with her son laying next to her in a top covered in teeny stars.

Her fans rushed to the comments section to gush over the sweet pictures.

One wrote: "Congrats darling. Terrific. Welcome to the parent club. It’s the most important gig we will ever get !! So wonderful."

"Congratulations! Sending lots and lots of love," said another.

A third gushed: "This is amazing news," followed by a love heart emoji.

"Awww congratulations Sophie!!!" said one.

The actress confirmed her pregnancy back in February by sharing two snaps of herself holding her growing baby bump.

It comes after The Gentleman Jack actress was rushed to hospital last year after contracting Covid-19 and suffering bouts of "hardcore" vomiting.

The star took to Instagram to talk of her coronavirus battle at the time.

Sophie shared a couple of pictures of herself looking fed up from her 'sick bed', as she gave her followers a look at her bloodshot eye.

She wrote alongside the images: "GREETINGS FROM MY SICK BED! So for Christmas this year I got myself a nice juicy bout of Covid-19.

"I also have a very festive bloodshot eye from all the hardcore vomiting I did in hospital (swipe if you're feeling brave), I can taste NOTHING, I have a cough to rival a Dickensian workhouse orphan boy and the angel on top of my festive sickness tree is the TOOTHACHE from my gnarly little wisdom teeth at the back there."
