Susan Sarandon's daughter Eva Amurri and her husband Kyle Martino welcomed their second bundle of joy together earlier this week, a baby boy who they have named Major James.

The Thelma and Louise star's daughter, who is also an actress, confirmed that she had a homebirth on Wednesday on her blog's newsletter, Happily Eva After, and that her healthy son weighed 8 lbs and 3 oz and measured 22 inches long.

The 31-year-old star, who also has a two-year-old daughter, Marlowe, said: "Our hearts are busting. Our family is complete, in addition to a 'thank you' to fans for their love and support."

Susan proudly shared the news about the arrival of her grandchild on Twitter, writing: "My warrior daughter @TheHappilyEva gave the world a perfect new soul yesterday. Welcome sweet Major James Martino. Grateful, beyond happy."

Fans of the 70-year-old actress were quick to offer their congratulations, with one writing: "He's beautiful, I'm so happy for everyone and grateful that everyone's healthy. Congratulations," while another added: "Many congratulations!! SO nice to come across GOOD news for a change! How wonderful! Hope you get some sleep soon!"

Eva shared a beautiful snap of the baby boy dressed in a blue and white striped baby grow on her Instagram account: writing: "Major James. One Day Old. Working on his birth story! Stay tuned... #HappilyEvaAfter #BabyBoyMartino #MajorJamesMartino #FamilyOfFour."

The New Girl actress had been updating her fans on her pregnancy journey on her blog, and revealed how she was looking forward to meeting her baby son in her latest post, which was shared just nine days before she gave birth.

"I'm so grateful that we got our perfect Fall Day in as a family of three," she revealed. "Now the only thing that’s truly missing for us is our sweet baby boy. We're waiting on you, Little Guy!"
