Rosamund Pike gave birth to a baby boy at home on Tuesday, it has been confirmed. The new addition is the second child for the actress and her long-term partner Robie Uniacke, who are already parents to two-year-old son Solo.
The Gone Girl star announced her pregnancy in June and revealed that her role playing the psychotic Amy Elliot-Dunne prompted her to have a second child.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, she said: "After filming I just knew I had to go out there and make a human being.
"The film was so tough and such a hard experience that the instant I'd finished I thought, "I need to bring something positive into the world. Life is good with little people around."
Rosamund's partner Robie and son Solo joined her while she was filming the thriller to provide a welcome distraction from the challenging role.
"If you have a little boy, you walk through the door at home and you get on to the floor with some Lego – that's a wonderful antidote," she said.
The actress has said filming Gone Girl prompted her to have another child
The 35-year-old actress has been with partner Robie, 53, since 2009. Robie already has four children from a previous relationship.
Rosamund has previously spoken of her family life, telling Vogue magazine: "It is interesting to break all the rules. I'm not married, I have a baby, and it feels infinitely more right."
