Alex Pettyfer has welcomed his first child with wife Toni Garrn, a daughter named Luca Malaika.

German supermodel Toni, 28, confirmed the happy news on Instagram, as she shared a snap of her cradling the newborn, with her tiny feet on display.

She wrote: ‘The most magical experience of my life brought Luca Malaika into our world last week.

‘She immediately stole our hearts forever.’

Meanwhile Alex, 31, has not commented publicly on the birth, as he announced in June he was taking a break from social media until August.

The Magic Mike star and his partner previously confirmed they were expecting a baby in March during a photoshoot for Vogue Germany, with Toni revealing she had been keeping it a secret for six months at that time.

In a video for the publication, in which she shows off her baby bump, Toni explained: ‘I guess what it means for me is my life is definitely changing forever.

‘What was my very first reaction when I found out that I was pregnant? I think the first word that came to me was “finally”. I was very, very, very, excited.

‘The best thing about being pregnant is definitely waking up every morning and knowing I’m pregnant. It’s the most beautiful, happy feeling. I touch my belly right away and I’m just super excited to have my little one inside me.’

She added that, considering everything in the world has slowed down this year, her body and her mind have ‘the patience and the time’ to be present as a parent.

‘I just dream of the way her or his face is going to look, the way it’s going to be, the way they’re going to smell,’ she continued. ‘I just can’t wait to meet my baby.’

Toni wrote alongside the video: ‘I’ve been keeping this secret for… pretty much 6 months exactly. FINALLY I can share my biggest news with you all.’

Alex also shared his excitement by simply writing: ‘DADDY’, alongside a purple heart emoji.

The couple had tied the knot last October in an intimate ceremony after getting engaged on Christmas Eve in 2019.

They celebrated their marriage at Berner Schloss in Hamburg, with a small group of friends and family in attendance.

Alex and Toni were first linked in January 2019 when they attended Elton John’s Oscar party together, but they didn’t confirm their romance until later in the year.
