Katherine Ryan Reveals Newborn Baby in Heartwarming Instagram Photo

Katherine Ryan has revealed that she has given birth to her second child—just two weeks after publicly sharing news of her pregnancy.

The Duchess star Ryan took to her Instagram story to announce on Monday the arrival of her bundle of joy, sharing a snap of herself cradling her baby in bed.

Captioning the heartwarming image, she wrote: "I have a really good reason why yesterday's podcast is late."

With her golden locks pulled back into a sleek style, Ryan looked radiant as she relaxed in a black patterned robe. Ryan has yet to publicly reveal the baby's name or gender.

She followed up with a snap of her partner Bobby Kootstra holding their newly arrived offspring, as he appears to watch the Netherlands vs. Ukraine Euro 2020 soccer game on TV.

"Eagerly arriving just before kickoff," Ryan wrote under the snapshot.

In May, Ryan confirmed that she was expecting her a baby as she filmed a live episode of her Telling Everybody Everything podcast in London.

Donning a form-fitting dress, the comedian was reportedly coy about revealing her due date, though she told the audience that her daughter was "very excited" about the prospect of becoming a big sister.

After Ryan confirmed the news, Kootstra took to Instagram to share a snap of his partner looking out of a window as she cradled her baby bump.

Captioning the image, which was uploaded on May 28, he wrote: "Bringing New Life:)."

Ryan and Kootstra, who dated as teenagers in Canada before reuniting several years later, live together in Hertfordshire, England.

The childhood sweethearts reunited after Ryan returned to her native Canada to film BBC TV show Who Do You Think You Are? in 2018two decades after they first dated.

They entered into a civil partnership in 2019. Ryan, who has been based in the U.K. since 2008, is also mother to daughter Violet, 11, from a previous relationship, according to OK!

During an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show in the U.K. in 2019, Ryan said: "I entered into a civil partnership. It's perfect having a civil partner.

"We didn't have a wedding. I didn't need to put on a white dress and pretend to be a virgin—that ship has sailed!"

She jokingly added that her daughter Violet "put Chanel glasses on and moped around [Copenhagen's] Tivoli Gardens" when she found out about the ceremony, but is now supportive of their relationship.

"It's a beautiful thing because she really loves him and it means she trusts me again," said Ryan. "I actually made a good decision for once."
