The British actress, who plays Ada Shelby in the hit BBC show, shared a snap of her baby boy on her Instagram page. Rundle also played Ann Walker in Gentleman Jack, and Vicky Budd in Bodyguard.

Addressing her followers, Rundle wrote:

"Our little boy who arrived safely and happily over the weekend and changed the game forever. My little egg. My overflowing, grateful heart."

Sophie had previously announced that she was expecting back in February, after the actress shared a picture of her bump on social media.

"New friend on the way," she wrote. "Arriving here with the daffodils and the sunnier days of Spring. O high riser, my little loaf."

The pregnancy announcement was immediately met with congratulations and well-wishes from Sophie's famous friends, including Phoebe Dynevor, Charlene McKenna and Julia Goulding.

Sophie met her partner Matt on the set of the Sky TV series Jamestown in 2016. The couple have been engaged since 2019.

Like Sophie, Matt is also an actor. Throughout his career, he's been featured in Bodyguard, Sense 8, The Village, Misfits and Black Mirror.

Many fans have speculated that the couple are already married after they were snapped wearing matching gold rings.

Sophie, however, has made it clear that she is in no rush to tie the knot.

"We got engaged a couple of weeks ago," she said in 2019. "The whole wedding thing is weird though."

"Everyone expects you to be desperate to be a princess for the day. That's really not my scene."

In December, Sophie was hospitalised for Covid-19. The star took to Instagram to share her symptoms. She announced that she was pregnant when she was released from hospital.
