Australian actress Kate Ritchie has welcomed her first child.
The former Home and Away star and her husband, former rugby player Stuart Webb, became first-time parents on Sunday (17Aug14) when they welcomed a little girl.
The new arrival came shortly after Ritchie celebrated her 36th birthday on Thursday (14Aug14).
The couple says in a statement, "We welcomed our beautiful little girl into the world last night. She is doing very well, as is Mum. We happen to think she is perfect and we couldn't be more delighted. Kate and Stuart."
