Michelle Yeoh and husband Jean Todt are not only celebrating the start of 2024, but the fact that they have just become grandparents.

The Oscar winner, 61, took to Instagram to share the auspicious moment with fans, adding a photo of her hand holding the newborn's little foot.

She captioned the photo: "A little miracle on the first day of 2024", with a heart emoji, she continued: "we are so truly blessed… can’t tell u how happy I am for this very very special bundle of joy."

It seems that fans got their wires crossed, however, as they thought the former Bond girl might have secretly had a baby of her own.

One fan wrote: "Grandkids? Or kids? Either way congratulations a new arrival is always fun".

Fortunately Michelle was quick to rectify people's perceptions as she followed up this post with a photo of herself looking utterly loved up with husband Jean, 77, with the caption: "Thank you darling Nicolas and Darina for making us the happiest and proudest Grandparents!! Welcome baby Maxime".

The caption was enough to clarify that the newborn baby, named Maxime, was not her own but rather her stepson Nicolas'.

Fans appreciated the clarification nonetheless, as one commented "the way she had to clarify it was her grandkid" with a crying emoji to show they'd found the situation funny.

Another commented: "Lmao this is definitely a clarification post!" While a different fan added they were "happy for you & the clarification was not necessary".

Michelle went on to share photos of the intimate family moment out of celebration. She included one of herself from the hospital with Jean, Nicolas, Darina and newborn Maxime. She gazed lovingly at the little one as Jean put an arm around her, sat between herself and Nicolas. Meanwhile Darina cradled Maxime adoringly.

The Everything Everywhere All At Once actress shared a photo of herself one on one with the baby, clearly completely besotted with him. She also added a photo of Jean and Nicolas sharing a moment with the little one.

This isn't the only piece of amazing news the actress has received, as she tied the knot with Jean Todt in July 2023, 19 years after he first proposed to her.
