Australian actress Kate Ritchie has revealed the first pictures of her new baby girl Mae in a cover shoot with Who Magazine.
Mae is Kate and rugby player husband Stuart Webb first child. The couple married in 2010 and have just celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary.
Kate shared the cover photo of Who on Instagram, writing:
"Please meet our beautiful daughter Mae. We are so very proud of her. She truly is the most precious thing x #mygreatestachievement"
Kate and Stuart are absolutely besotted with their new arrival, with the new mum saying that “I've never felt such - and I don't want to say love because I've read that before - but it's true!”
The couple are also celebrating their anniversary today, leading Kate to muse on how much their lives have changed since last year.
On a lovely picture of her and Stuart, Kate commented:
“Today is our 4th wedding anniversary! This time last year we were celebrating in London, travelling the world. Today I am in my pyjamas, looking after our little creation and I wouldn't have it any other way."
“Thank you to everyone for your beautiful words of congratulations and support of our first official photos of Mae in @whomagazine
this morning xx #complete #happyanniversary”
Best known for playing Sally Fletcher on Home and Away, Kate started working on the soap in 1987 at the age of just eight. She starred in the soap for 20 years until 2008, making a brief comeback in 2013. While she is currently on maternity leave, she usually hosts a breakfast radio show on the Australian station Nova 100.
