Australian actress Teresa Palmer and her husband, Mark Webber, are now the parents of three children. They welcomed the newest addition to their family on Friday, a baby girl. The child’s name is Poet Lake Palmer, and her parents couldn’t be more excited for her arrival. Palmer took to social media on Saturday to announce her happy news with fans, according to E! News.
Palmer announced that she and her husband were expecting a baby back in October. Shortly after the exciting announcement, she posted a photo of herself on Instagram posing on the beach at sunset while cradling her already pronounced baby bump.
“Thank you for all the beautiful messages we are overjoyed but mostly very grateful,” she wrote.
The actress is very active on Instagram, frequently posting pictures of her other two children and documenting her pregnancy journey. Fans that had followed her from the start of her pregnancy were ecstatic to hear that she’d finally welcomed her new daughter into the world.
