Maia Dunphy and her husband Johnny Vegas have announced the arrival of their son, Tom Laurence, born on Friday afternoon.

The first time mum said today: "Our new man has his Dad's habits already. Tom Laurence arrived last Friday at a civilised hour after lunch. 7.2lb."

Maia revealed her news on Twitter and accompanied the tweet with an adorable photo of a baby pair of Converse next to two pairs of adult runners.

Doting father Johnny followed up her tweet with one of his own, thanking the maternity team at the Kingston Hospital in London, saying that mother and child "couldn't have been in better hands."

Maia, who has shared a lot of her pregnancy ups and downs on Twitter, later hilariously posted a picture of a model boasting chiselled abs and captioned it "Post baby tummy 4 days in."

In January, the RTE star used Twitter to share the news that she was expecting, posting a picture of a baby scan with a pint of Guinness photoshopped in his hand.

 "Well @JohnnyVegasReal , at least we know he's definitely yours...." she tweeted.
