The iconic Disney star welcomed her first child yesterday.

High School Musical actress Ashley Tisdale has announced the birth of her daughter.

Jupiter Iris French was born yesterday, 23 March.

The star shared an adorable picture of her new baby’s hand wrapped around her finger on Instagram earlier today.

“Jupiter Iris French arrived earth side 3.23.31,” she wrote.

Ashley tagged her husband, Christopher French, a compsoer, in the Instagram post.

The actress’ famous friends were quick to share their congratulations. Wild Child star Emma Roberts wrote “Angel!”, while Sarah Hyland said “A queen and her princess!”

Glee star Lea Michele chipped in to say “Congratulations beautiful mama!”

Actress Hilary Duff also shared her best wishes in welcoming Jupiter into the world.

Just days ago, Tisdale shared a picture of herself and her bump, and captioned the shot “Any day now.”

The couple announced that they were expecting a girl in late 2020.

“This year has obviously been hard,” Ashley wrote, revealing the gender. “For so many. Ups and downs, and an emotional roller coaster. I think this day was by far my favorite day EVER! I cried I was so happy.”

Ashley and Christopher got married in 2014.

The star recently opened up about her relationship with her body through pregnancy. She spoke to Frenshe, a lifestyle magazine, about her experience.

“I am so proud of my body, and I’m so grateful to be able to create a home and grow my little one,” she said.

She added that she finds the changes startling: “It’s like I don’t fully recognize myself and almost like an out-of-body experience. Thoughts like, ‘Is that really me?‘ come to mind.”

Ashley continued: “I think that you can love your body, no matter what shape or form, but it’s the acceptance part that trips me up a little.”
