TV couple Peter Stefanovic and Sylvia Jeffreys have welcomed their first child together, as the couple shared an adorable photo of their newborn son on social media.

The couple, who met whilst working for Channel Nine and tied the knot in 2017, unveiled beautiful baby Oscar to the world on Thursday morning. Peter took to Instagram to share his pride in wife Sylvia and treated his followers to the first photo of the newest member of the Stefanovic clan.

“We’ve got our own Oscar!” Peter wrote. “I’m so unbelievably proud of @sylviajeffreys and our new best mate. Love is strong. Life is fantastic.”

The adorable photograph showed glowing new mum Sylvia cradling her baby boy in her arms as she smiles down sweetly at him, while Oscar sleeps soundly wearing a blue Winnie the Pooh sleepsuit.

Sylvia also shared an image of baby Oscar on her own account, as she revealed that Oscar – whose middle name is Hamilton – was born weighing 3.4kg and has “deep blue eyes”.

She wrote: “Our beautiful boy, Oscar Hamilton Stefanovic ???? 3.4kg, deep blue eyes and perfectly healthy. He’s absolute magic. ???? @peter_stefanovic

People were quick to congratulate the couple on their new arrival, with Channel Seven sports reporter Tom Williams writing: “He’s a little beauty! Congrats guys.”

Studio 10 star Sarah Harris wrote: “Your life is about to become technicolor!” While chef Matt Moran simply wrote: “Congratulations.”

The couple announced they were expecting their first child back in August last year, even revealing that they were expecting a boy. Sylvia broke the news on Instagram and said they were “over the moon” to be pregnant with their bundle of joy.

“We’re having a baby boy and we’re totally over the moon!!” the 33-year-old wrote, alongside a photo of herself and Peter.

Peter, 37, also shared a post on his Instagram, writing in the caption: “Soon to be a family of three and we are rapt! Good thing I’m already match fit with the whole no sleep thing.”

It won’t be long until little Oscar has a new cousin to play with either as Peter’s brother Karl Stefanovic and wife Jasmine Yarbrough are also expecting their first child together. Karl, who was previously married to journalist Cassandra Thorburn, also shares three children – Jackson, 20, Ava, 14 and River, 12 – with his ex-wife.

Karl and Jasmine, who tied the knot in Mexico in December 2018, have kept relatively tight-lipped about their impending arrival, however just last month Karl, 45, told radio hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson that his wife was “glowing”.

“[Jasmine] is glowing, she’s happy and we’re all very happy,” he said.
