“Welcome to the world, Max Valentine Imbruglia,” she wrote alongside a photo of her holding her son’s hand. “My heart is bursting.”

Imbruglia revealed in July 2019 she was expecting her first child, at the same time as announcing she had signed a new record deal.

“As you can see from the pic, there is another announcement (no I haven’t swallowed a watermelon),” she joked in the picture caption.

“For those of you that know me, this has been something I have wanted for a very long time and I’m blessed that this is possible with the help of IVF and a sperm donor,” she wrote. “I won’t be saying anything more on that publicly.”
