Thandie Newton has given birth to a baby boy.

The 41-year-old actress and husband Ol Parker welcomed little Booker Jombe - a sibling for their daughters Ripley, 13, and Nico, nine - into the world on Monday (03.03.14), she has announced on Twitter.

She wrote on Tuesday: “Our baby boy is finally here! Booker Jombe Parker. Born joyously at home yesterday.”

The 'Crash' actress announced her pregnancy in September and later admitted she was finding it tough working on action-packed police drama 'Rogue', in which she plays undercover cop Grace Travis.

She said: “Basically, I had two options; to withdraw from the show which would have meant the show collapsing, or to commit regardless.

“I'd seem actresses takes on meaty un-pregnant roles while carrying babies - Jodie Foster in 'Panic Room'. My agent also reassured me that both Claire Danes and Anna Paquin worked well into their first pregnancies. So - it was all going to work out just fine wasn't it?

“We're on episode nine, and are near enough to finishing for me to be able to chuckle at my naivety in thinking this was going to be anything other than mayhem, with a waddling lead actress at the centre.'“
