He added the hashtags “'thrilled #soinlove #grateful and #incrediblemumma" but didn't share any further details such as the baby's gender or name.

Earlier this week Frost, 49, had teased that he might have some big news.

He posted a picture of himself on Instagram a few days ago with the cryptic caption: “Not long now… I can’t say….”

Then two days later he shared a snap that seemed to show him in a hospital and told his 548,000 followers on the platform: “It begins…”

The star welcomed a son with his ex-wife in 2011. He became a father for the second time in 2018 when he and his girlfriend had a baby together.

Frost was inundated with messages of congratulations from his famous friends after he shared his baby news.

Sexy Beast star Ray Winstone wrote: “Congratulations my man. Big love to you all.”

"This is brilliant and beautiful," said Sherlock star Amanda Abbington. "Congratulations to all of you. Love you all.”
