Katherine Ryan and Bobby Kootstra have revealed the name of their new-born baby boy.
The loved up couple welcomed their first child into the world on Sunday and the comedian’s partner has cheekily praised the proud mum – who also has 11-year-old daughter Violet from a previous relationship – for getting ‘over the line’ in time for the Euro 2020 game between Netherlands and Ukraine.
He wrote on Instagram: ‘Our son Frederick Ryan Kootstra, born June 13th:)
‘Mom has the reproductive organs of a finely tuned Sportscar, and in a flash raced this baby over the line just in time for kickoff #nedvsukr
‘She’s a total hero… 3 hours start to finish #bestday (sic)’
Her timing was clearly impeccable as only hours before The Duchess star was seen bouncing around excitedly on Instagram after submitting the final draft of her upcoming book.
Sharing a sweet update on Monday morning, Katherine shared the next episode of her podcast would be a little delayed – seems reasonable, to be fair – as she was seen beaming towards the camera with her new baby in shot.
She wrote: ‘I have a really good reason yesterday’s podcast is late.’
In another shot, the star shared a glimpse of partner Bobby taking in his new baby as well as the Euros game which was on the hospital room’s screen.
Last month Katherine confirmed that she was expecting a baby with Bobby while filming a live episode of her Telling Everybody Everything podcast in Kentish Town in London.
The 37-year-old showed off her bump in a form-fitting dress, and, according to The Sun, remained coy as she refused to reveal her due date.
Katherine said that by keeping her due date a secret, she could fend off questions from nosy mums and comparisons between her bump and others.
The star’s daughter Violet joined her mother on stage, and told the audience she is ‘very excited’ to be a big sister.
Katherine had previously revealed her bump in a green dress on Celebrity Juice last week, but did not address her pregnancy.
The All That Glitters host has largely avoided posting full-body pictures on Instagram over the last few weeks, and concealed her tummy during TV appearances with more loose-fitting outfits.
After Katherine announced the news, Bobby confirmed it on his own Instagram, sharing a picture of his wife’s baby bump and writing: ‘Bringing new life.’
