The I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair) star and her husband Matt Benson welcomed their baby son earlier this week (beg07Mar16) after a tough labour.

Sandi took to Facebook and posted a series of pictures from her hospital room, showing off the baby laying in his cot and being cradled by Matt and her mother.

"FINALLY.... Proud to announce that our little man arrived this week," she wrote. "Weighing in at a whopping 9lbs 15oz and already wearing 3 month old baby grows he is perfect!!!

"It wasn't a walk in the park that's for sure but so proud to have given birth to him and so thankful to my husband and mum for keeping me focused throughout a very tiresome but 100% worthwhile labour. Our little boy is a wee (little) beauty!!!!"

Sandi, 34, was expected to give birth in February (16), and by the start of March (16) she told fans she had turned down the chance to induce the birth because, "Baby will come when baby is ready!"

Sandi and Matt married in Malibu, California in September, 2015 after a whirlwind romance.
