Model and actor Emily Ratajkowski welcomes first child

Such an unusual name.

Yesterday model and actor Emily Ratajkowski announced that she has given birth to her first child.

Ratajkowski announced in October last year that she was expecting her first child with film producer Sebastian Bear-McClard.

Ratajkowski posted a beautiful photo of her breastfeeding her newborn to social media to reveal to fans that she had given birth.

The 29-year-old posted the sweet photo as well as revealing her child’s name, which is one we haven’t heard in a while;

“Sylvester Apollo Bear has joined us earth side.

Sly arrived 3/8/21 on the most surreal, beautiful, and love-filled morning of my life.”

Apart from Sylvester Stallone, it’s not a name that you hear of that often and a really unusual and unique choice.

Since posting the good news yesterday, friends and fans alike have been quick to leave messages of congratulations to the new parents.

Among those leaving messages were fellow models Helena Christensen and Kate Bosworth;

“Omg babe!!!! Congrats amor to the both of you!! What a blessing!!”

“Congratulations Emily! We are so happy for you and little Sylvester!!”

“Congratulations on the baby pisces angel!!”

“So much love to you 3.”

Ratajkowski married her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard in a ceremony at New York City Hall in 2018.

The Gone Girl actor has stated in previous interviews that she plans on raising her child gender neutral.

Ratajkowski has not posted anything else since she announced the arrival of little baby Sylvester and our guess would be that she taking time to bond with her new baby and grab some sleep when she can.

We’re absolutely delighted for Ratajkowski and her husband and we can’t wait to see more photos of gorgeous baby Sylvester.
