'Outlander' star Caitriona Balfe is a mother now! The actor took to Instagram on Tuesday to say that she and her husband, Tony McGill, welcomed their first child recently. She also shared a black-and-white photo of herself holding her baby boy's hand.
"I’ve been off socials for a while as I was taking some time to enjoy cooking up this little human. We are so grateful for this little soul ….that he chose us as his parents. I’m in awe of him already and can’t help stare and wonder at all the possibilities of who he will become, where he will go and what he’ll do on the big adventure of his life," she wrote.
Expressing gratitude for the baby's safety, and sorrow for all those who are lucky in that regard, the 41-year-old actor said, "Right now he seems so small and fragile and I constantly think how grateful I am that I live in a place, in a time where he is born into peace and safety. And yet at the same time I see so many in the world right now that aren’t afforded that same privilege and opportunity … who are born into famine or war and how unjust it is that the same safety isn’t there for all children."
"Here in the west we have so much, we are so lucky and so if you’d like to join me in supporting any of the wonderful charities that need help trying to give those that are forgotten dignity and hope, we can give the gift of peace and safety and opportunity to a few more children," she concluded
Balfe and her 45-year-old Scottish music producer husband got married in an intimate ceremony at St. Mary's Church in Bruton, Somerset, in the U.K, in August 2019.
