Thandie Newton has been relatively private about letting people see her new baby boy, Booker Jombe Parker, but Newton has given the public its first glimpse at the six-week old on Twitter.
Newton still isn’t allowing any photos she doesn’t directly control taken of the tiny tot, but the photos, posted on the social media site, does mark the first time, outside Thandie’s friends and family, we have seen Booker, E! Online points out.

The pic shows Newton and her newborn cuddling in the sun on a rather comfy-looking hammock. The child’s face is still partially hidden as it is laying with its back to the camera.
Thandie Newton and husband Ol Parker first announced they were expecting Booker back in September, and it is the third child for the happy couple.
On March 4, Newton did make the announcement that the new baby had indeed arrived, also doing that by way of Twitter. She posted a quick blurb, saying, “our baby boy is finally here! Booker Jombe Parker. Born joyously at home yesterday”
A few days later, she did actually give the world a very quick and very small glimpse into what was to come from the little cutey. In another Twitter pic, Newton displayed just the hand of her new little bundle of joy.

Newton and Parker were first married in 1998 and have had a very successful go of it, especially when their relationship is being compared to other romances in the entertainment industry.
It probably helps that the couple aren’t your average Hollywood pair as they manage to avoid headlines in ways other celebrities have to envy.
While Thandie and Ol haven’t put their new child on display for the media yet, Netwton has made public appearances since Booker’s birthday. Most recently the actress showed off her post-baby body for the London premiere of Half a Yellow Sun.
During that premiere Newton showed off her return to slinky and sexy in a prized little black dress. Half a Yellow Sun also stars 12 Years a Slave star, Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Booker’s birth adds to Thandie and Ol’s rapidly growing family. Thandie Newton and her husband have also welcomed two daughters to the world in Ripley, 13, and Nico, 9.
