Australian actress Rebel Wilson has announced the birth of her first child, daughter Royce Lillian, who was “born this past week via surrogate,” according to her verified Instagram account.

“I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle!” Wilson said.

Wilson is in a relationship with fashion designer Ramona Agruma. She didn’t mention any plans to co-parent, but the Pitch Perfect star did include a nod to those who helped make it happen.

“I am forever grateful to everyone who has been involved (you know who you are), and this has been years in the making … but particularly wanted to thank my gorgeous surrogate who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care.”

“Thank you for helping me start my own family, it’s an amazing gift. The best gift!!

“I am learning quickly…much respect to all the Mums out there,” Wilson, 42, wrote. “Proud to be in your club.”

Wilson’s baby news was met with well-wishes from around the world, with famous friends rushing to congratulate the first-time mum.

“So happy for you love! Congratulations,” commented Paris Hilton. New Zealand actor and director Taika Waititi said, “Yes Rebz, congrats xx”.

Actor Alison Brie sent her congratulations too with Melanie Griffith, while Pitch Perfect co-star Brittany Snow welcomed the new addition: “Aunt Britt is so excited to meet the newest Bella.”

Wilson and Agruma have been dating for seven months, but recently shot down rumours they were engaged.

“Thanks for the well wishes but we are not engaged,” Wilson clarified in a video posted to her Instagram Stories on November 5.

Wilson next stars opposite Charlotte Gainsbourg and Meera Syal in the indie drama The Almond and the Seahorse.
