Clara celebrated the arrival of her baby brother on Instagram

The new arrival is the fifth child for Ewan and the first for Elizabeth. The Star Wars star shares four daughters with his ex-wife, Eve Mavrakis: Clara, Esther, Jamyan, 20, and Anouk, ten. The former couple were married for 22 years before he filed for divorce in January 2018.

Mary, meanwhile, split from her husband Riley Stearns in May 2017 after seven years of marriage.

Esther also shared some snapshots of little Laurie

In January 2020, the Fargo actress spoke to Glamour UK about moving on after the end of that relationship. "I got divorced a couple of years ago, which was a scary, crazy thing for me because I had been with the same person since I was 18 years old, and that was what I knew," she said.

"I was really starting new as an adult for the first time in my life. For me that was a big turning point, being OK with changing, accepting that change is a good thing and that it's OK not to know where that change is going to take you."
