"A Beautiful Little Boy" - Home and Away Star Emily Symons Welcomes First Child
There's a new baby in the Bay!
Popular Home and Away star Emily Symons has given birth to her first child at the age of 45.
The actress, who has played Marilyn Chambers in the Australian soap on and off for 26 years, shared the happy news through her agent on Monday morning.
A statement from Emily and her partner Paul Jackson read: "Emily Symons and Paul Jackson welcomed a beautiful little boy into the world."
"Mother and baby are both doing well."
The news comes two months after Emily opened up to New Idea magazine about her joy at being pregnant, saying: "I cry through all the scans, every time I hear that heartbeat, but they're obviously tears of happiness."
The birth comes after many failed IVF attempts for the star, who also appeared in British soap Emmerdale for seven years.
