Caitriona Balfe, star of ‘Outlander,’ giving birth to a boy under secret.
Caitriona Balfe and her husband Tony McGill of “Outlander” should be congratulated.
The couple discreetly welcomed their first child together, a newborn boy, on Wednesday, according to the Irish actress.
Balfe, 41, captioned a beautiful Instagram photo of herself clutching her newborn’s hand, “I’ve been off socials for a bit as I was taking some time to enjoy cooking up this tiny person.”
“We are very thankful that this tiny soul picked us to be his parents. I’m already awestruck by him, and I can’t help but think about all the possibilities of who he’ll become, where he’ll travel, and what he’ll do on his life’s grand adventure.”
She didn’t say what the baby’s name was or when he was born, but she did use the announcement to support a number of charities, including World Child Cancer, Choose Love, Unicef, and the United Nations Refugee Agency.
“Right now, he seems so small and fragile, and I constantly think how grateful I am that I live in a place, in a time, where he is born into peace and safety, and yet I see so many in the world right now who aren’t afforded that same privilege and opportunity… who are born into famine or war, and how unjust it is that the same safety isn’t available to all children.”
“We have so much here in the west; we are so fortunate, and if you’d like to join me in supporting any of the great organizations who are working to provide dignity and hope to those who have been forgotten, we can give the gift of peace, safety, and opportunity to a few more children…” she said. @chooselove @unicef @refugees @wchildcancer
Balfe and her 45-year-old Scottish music producer husband are expecting their first child.
In August of this year, the couple married.
In a February 2020 interview with Inquirer.net, she joked, “The only thing I would say about my wedding is that I managed to fit it in on a weekend amid production.” “What made it even more special was that I was surrounded by my extremely close relatives and friends.
“All I want in life is to be happy. I’d want to maintain my sanity. I’m fortunate to have a career that I like. It’s important to remember that your profession cannot be your only focus. As a result, I consider myself fortunate to have met someone who makes me extremely happy. I’ll be OK as long as those two things continue to go well.”
