Their baby's birth announcement echoes the post Kate made revealing the birth of her first child, a daughter, three years ago. The couple have decided to keep her name a secret.

Kate announced the birth of her daughter on social media by sharing an artistic portrait of the tot's feet with the caption: "We had a baby a couple weeks ago...Here are her feet."

As well as his children with Kate, Jamie has a nine-year-old son Jack with his ex-wife Evan Rachel Wood.

Kate and Jamie started dating in 2015 after meeting on set of Fantastic Four a year earlier. The couple tied the knot at an intimate ceremony in July 2017.

The couple kept the guest list small, only inviting around 60 people.

"We actually got married right across the street from our house. I literally woke up in my own bed and walked across the street and we had our ceremony," Jamie said during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
