The former footballer and new wife, model Frida, welcomed their first child this week, some weeks after announcing their marriage.

Dad Jamie shared the happy news on Instagram today, with a photo of himself and newborn baby Raphael.

"Meet Raphael Anders Redknapp," he wrote. "We’re so in love, mum is doing so well too.

"We can’t thank the amazing doctors and nurses at the Chelsea and Westminster enough. So excited for him to meet my boys."

Jamie and Frida married earlier this year without announcing their engagement. According to reports, the couple wed in a very low-key ceremony at a Chelsea Registry office.

They were joined by Jamie’s parents Harry and Sandra Redknapp, and his two sons Charles, 16, and Beau, 12.

After the intimate ceremony, the couple met with some more friends and family, eating at high-end seafood restaurant Scotts in Mayfair, London.

The pair have kept much of their relationship under wraps. They confirmed their romance in summer of 2020 and announced that they were expecting their first child earlier this year.
