Huge congratulations are in order for new parents Sofia Richie Grainge and Elliot Grainge, who have welcomed their first child.

Sofia confirmed their new arrival on Instagram, saying her daughter was born on 20 May - the 'best day' of her life.

The pair tied the knot with in 2023 in a lavish ceremony in the South of France, announcing they were expecting a baby in January this year - Sofia initially thinking she was jet-lagged before realising she was experiencing pregnancy symptoms.

When three tests revealed she was with child, she said she and Elliot both burst into tears, saying it felt hard not to 'scream it from the rooftops'.

The pair have now welcomed their baby girl, sharing her adorable name with fans in their social media announcement.

Posting a black-and-white photo of her daughter's tiny feet, she wrote: "Eloise Samantha Grainge.

"5•20•24 best day of my life."

Sofia and Elliot are both well-known figures, with Sofia being the daughter of Lionel Richie and a model, and 30-year-old Elliot being the son of Universal Music Group's CEO.

The couple announced they were expecting in an interview with Vogue earlier this year.

Sofia revealed: "I found out very, very early, I was about four weeks pregnant.

"I was on a trip to Milan for Fashion Week, and I was going to the Prada show. I was doing a really quick 24-hour turnaround, and I felt terrible but didn’t think much of it. I thought it was jet lag.”

She continued: "When we turned over all three tests at the same time they were all positive. He was so excited, and we both cried. It was crazy and overwhelming and so hard not to scream it from the rooftops."

Sofia also confirmed in the interview that they were expecting a baby girl.

Talking about what kind of parent she wishes to be, Sofia added: "I want to be protective but not too overly protective, and find that balance.

“I want to be involved, but not too involved. I need to find that balance and groove. I want my child to be a child, I’m not going to publicise my child on Instagram.

"I don’t plan to take that approach because I want my kid to have the option to do what she wants with her life. If she wants to be a private person, I want her to be able to make that choice, and if she wants to be a public person, she can make that choice for herself.”

Sofia also mentioned that she wishes to raise a 'smart, kind' girl.

We're sure she will.

Congratulations to the Richie Grainge family!
