Erin O’Connor has announced that she has given birth to a baby boy.

The 41-year-old model confirmed that she had welcomed a son, named Eddie, with her partner, businessman Steve Gibson, in early March (19).

The news comes days after Erin posted a picture of herself cradling her bump in a hospital room on Instagram, hinting that she was due to give birth soon.

“Waiting for Eddie…” she captioned the post.

Speaking to the Daily Mail on Friday (15Mar19), Erin confessed that the couple are besotted with their new arrival.

“We’ve stolen lots and lots of cuddles over the last few days,” the star revealed. “We are completely over the moon.”

Earlier this year, all eyes were on the model at Paris Couture Fashion Week when she walked in the Schiaparelli show wearing an enormous pink and red tulle gown while she was eight months pregnant.

The dress, which comprised four oversized tiers, was more than adequate for hiding her bulging bump.

Eddie is the couple’s second child, after they welcomed son Albert in June 2014.

Erin kept news of the pregnancy under wraps until the final stages, debuting her sizable bump at a bash to celebrate British Vogue editor Edward Enninful’s first anniversary at the helm of the fashion bible in November.

She made a similar reveal while pregnant with Albert, surprising fans when she showed off her bump at a red carpet event after keeping her pregnancy a secret.

At the time, she remarked on her success at keeping the news quiet.

“Nobody knew. This is my first outing. It was a well kept secret,” she laughed. “Thank God for all those winter coats. I just thought I’d come out with a bang.”
