Outlander: Caitríona Balfe discusses season five episode

Outlander star Caitriona Balfe revealed she has welcomed a baby boy with husband Tony McGill.

The 41-year-old took to Instagram to share a black-and-white photo of her baby holding onto her finger.

The actress had kept her pregnancy private and has delighted fans with the news.

“I’ve been off socials for a while as I was taking some time to enjoy cooking up this little human …. ” she began.

“We are so grateful for this little soul ….that he chose us as his parents. I’m in awe of him already and can’t help stare and wonder at all the possibilities of who he will become, where he will go and what he’ll do on the big adventure of his life.

“Right now he seems so small and fragile and I constantly think how grateful I am that I live in a place, in a time where he is born into peace and safety and yet at the same time I see so many in the world right now that aren’t afforded that same privilege and opportunity … who are born into famine or war and how unjust it is that the same safety isn’t there for all children.

She hasn’t revealed his name



She continued: “Here in the west we have so much, we are so lucky and so if you’d like to join me in supporting any of the wonderful charities that need help trying to give those that are forgotten dignity and hope, we can give the gift of peace and safety and opportunity to a few more children …”

Co-star Graham McTavish commented on the post to congratulate her.

“Congratulations Cait. Wonderful stuff!” he wrote.

“I know you may be tempted to name him Dougal but you must resist!!!! All the best to you, Tony, and your splendid wee man! “

Laura Whitmore commented: “Congrats” along with a heart emoji.

Irish actress Amy Huberman posted: “[heart emojis] congratulations Caitriona xxx.”
