It was originally reported by The Daily Telegraph's Sydney Confidential that Bridges had given birth to a girl over the weekend however in a statement to the Australian Women’s Weekly Bridges confirmed that it was in fact a boy saying “Mum and Bub are absolutely fantastic, dad is too! Tears and joy all round!"

Bridges, 45, spoke to the monthly magazine earlier this year saying she’d always hoped that one day she’d become a mother.

The couple announced their pregnancy news back in July, when Bridges posted a message to Instagram.
