Nine Network personality Tom Steinfort has welcomed a baby girl.
The 60 Minutes reporter and his wife Claudia, a magazine style editor, had their bundle of joy on November 16.
A day later, the former Today show co-host took to Instagram to introduce his daughter Frederikke to the world in a series of sweet snaps.
“Our gorgeous girl, Frederikke,” he began in the caption.
“Born yesterday – mum was amazing, Freddie is too beautiful for words, and dad cried more than the baby.”
Celebrity friends have been quick to congratulate the presenter.
“Oh my goodness guys. She’s perfect. Congratulations legends. Can’t wait for a cuddle,” Brooke Boney commented on the post.
“Beautiful, what a special day, lots of love to you and the whole family,” Leila McKinnon said.
“Huge congrats!!!” Deb Knight added.
Claudia also shared photos on her social media, telling followers: “We love golden hour and life chats with our favourite girl”.
Tom and Claudia married in a stunning ceremony in Hvar, Croatia in August 2019.
The ceremony was held at St Stephen’s Cathedral surrounded by family and friends before a reception at the 16th-century Hvar Fortress.
The couple chose to have a destination wedding in Croatia because it holds a very special place in their hearts – they got engaged while on holidays there in June 2018.
The presenter revealed to 9Honey recently that he popped the question on a boat they’d hired for the day with Claudia’s best friend Kat and her boyfriend.
“I worded them up on what I was planning to do and said, ‘When there’s a nice time, can you make yourself scarce?'” he said at the time.
Things didn’t quite go to plan when the boat’s captain decided to drop anchor near a nudist beach but thankfully Tom realised that was his cue to pull out the vintage ring Claudia had been eyeing off for months.
“She started crying and I thought, ‘She either hates me, or this is good,’ but she said yes,” he recalled.
Tom and Claudia met through mutual friends in 2017. They were supposed to meet at a party but due to the former 60 Minutes reporter’s busy news schedule, he missed it. Instead, they met up on another occasion for drinks, which turned into a four-hour date.
One of the things Tom told 9Honey he loved most about his partner is her how close she is with her “tight knit” family.
“I think our two families have come together nicely. When you’re going to make a family of your own with someone … it means a lot to see how much her family means to her.”
And now the couple are a family of their own – congratulations Steinforts.
