Rebel Wilson has announced she has become a mum.

The actress, 42, welcomed a little girl, named Royce Lillian, who was born by surrogate over the past few days.

She added an adorable picture of the tot along with a gushing caption thanking her loved ones for support, and announcing her arrival to the "mum club".

Rebel wrote: 'Beyond proud to announce the birth of my first child, Royce Lillian, born this past week via surrogate 💗 I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle! I am forever grateful to everyone who has been involved, (you know who you are), this has been years in the making… but particularly wanted to thank my gorgeous surrogate who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care.

'Thank you for helping me start my own family, it’s an amazing gift. The BEST gift!! I am ready to give little Roycie all the love imaginable. I am learning quickly…much respect to all the Mums out there! Proud to be in your club. 💗💗💗'

Royce is Rebel's first child, and she also shared a glimpse of a baby shower with a photo posted to her Instagram stories.

In May 2021, Rebel shared that she was 'struggling' with fertility issues. Alongside a shot of herself looking downcast and standing on a beach, she wrote a caption which stated: 'I got some bad news today and didn’t have anyone to share it with...but I guess I gotta tell someone. To all the women out there struggling with fertility, I feel ya. The universe works in mysterious ways and sometimes it all doesn’t make sense...but I hope there’s light about to shine through all the dark clouds.'

The 'Pitch Perfect' star has previously gone on the record about her desire to have children. In 202o, she revealed that she planned on freezing her eggs. In an interview with E! Online in November of that year, she also stated that she deals with polycystic ovary syndrome.

'It’s just a hormone imbalance and you gain a lot of weight usually and that’s how it manifested in me. Sometimes I feel sad, but then at the same time, I worked my body to my advantage. I like being all sizes,' she said. She also stated that, after turning 40, she’s become 'more health conscious and thinking of starting a family.'

Earlier this year Rebel surprised fans when she came out as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, revealing that she had fallen in love with a 'Disney Princess', Ramona Agruma.
