"Feeling beyond blessed to have welcomed this precious little boy, Raphael Anders Redknapp, to our family. A big thank you to all the wonderful doctors and nurses at Chelsea Westminister Hospital," she added.

The proud new mum also updated her Instagram bio, adding: "Mamma to 5 precious kiddies."

Fans of the Swedish model loved the personal snaps, with one writing: "Oh my goodness, look at all that hair! Huge congrats on the safe arrival of your beautiful boy."

A second added: "He's such a beautiful baby and your wife looks radiant. Congratulations Jamie x," whilst a third remarked: "Big congratulations to everyone. Would like to say that you are the Viking with 5 children," to which Frida replied: "haha! Maybe I am a little Viking."

Jamie and Friday's new baby comes just weeks after the couple tied the knot at Chelsea Registry Office in London.

For their surprise nuptials, the 37-year-old bride looked picture perfect in a stunning off-shoulder white dress which highlighted her blossoming baby bump, while Jamie, 48, put on a dapper display in a slick navy suit with white shirt and black tie.

Jamie is already a father to his sons Charley, 17, and Beau, 13 - both of whom he shares wife ex-wife Louise Redknapp.

Frida, on the other hand, has four children from her marriage to American hedge fund tycoon Jonathan Lourie.
