Erin O'Connor has given birth to a baby boy.

The 41-year-old model and her partner Stephen Gibson - who also have four-year-old Bertie together - recently welcomed little Eddie into the world and couldn't be happier.

She shared a black and white photo of herself and the newborn on her Instagram account and wrote: ''We've stolen lots and lots of cuddles over the last few days so thought it was about time we shared our precious little Buddha with you. Thank you for all of your lovely warm wishes and support. We are completely over the moon! (sic)''

In January, Erin closed the Schiaparelli show in Paris but her baby bump was hidden under a huge pink dress made of four layers of tulle and hailed the runway appearance as her ''last hoorah'' before giving birth.

She shared photos of herself in the gown on Instagram and wrote at the time: ''One last hurrah at the Paris Opera Garnier before the wee scamp arrives... Merci @schiaparelli @bertrandguyon @kegrand @bitton [heart emoji] you ALL(sic)''

And she revealed the huge layers of the dress meant she was able to walk the runway in secret as no one could see her feet.

She posted another photo from the show and captioned it: ''I am wearing an expression of calm.. I am also wearing @schiaparelli couture with converse boots. Dreams can come true!! (sic)''

Erin kept news of her pregnancy under wraps until November, when she revealed her baby bump at a party - the same way she revealed she was expecting when she was carrying Bertie.

She said at the time: ''Nobody knew. This is my first outing. It was a well kept secret. Thank God for all those winter coats. I just thought I'd come out with a bang.''
