Nashville and Empire star Kaitlin Doubleday welcomes first child with husband Devin Lucien

Nashville star Kaitlin Doubleday has welcomed her first child.

The 34-year-old actress has given birth to a baby son who she welcomed with her husband Devin Lucien.

And the pair has given their newborn baby boy the cutest name!

The Empire actress and her DJ husband have named their new arrival Franklin.

The new mum’s actress sister, Portia Doubleday, who has starred in a number of films and TV series and is a regular in thriller series Mr. Robot, took to social media to reveal the exciting news.

The 30-year-old took to her Instagram page to share a sweet photo of the newborn and reveal his cute name.

Alongside a heartwarming photo of the baby boy curled up sleeping (and donning the most adorable sausage dog adorned hat), the proud aunt wrote: ‘BABY FRANKLIN HAS ARRIVED!!! That’s my nephew! Congrats @kaitlindday @devinlucien’.

Fans and friends commented on the sweet post, with the gushing parents even making an appearance in the comments section.

‘Wow he’s delicious looking!’ exclaimed new mum Kaitlin, while dad Devin simply added a star emoji alongside the name of his wife.

Many followers sent well wishes to the new parents, with comments including: ‘Beautiful baby! Congratulations to your sister and her husband! ❤’, ‘@kaitlindday @devinlucien congrats!!! He’s so precious!!! Can’t wait to meet him!’ and ‘Congrats @devinlucien + @kaitlindday Frankin, you sure picked your parents so very well’.

Many others celebrated with Portia on starting the journey as an aunt, writing: ‘Congratulations aunty Portia ❤️ he’s perfect! X’, ‘Portia- you are entering the magical world of aunt- it is glorious’ and ‘Portia, being an aunt is the best!’

While another enthusiastic follower probed the new aunt on when she would start a family of her own, writing: ‘when are you having 1 of yours?’

This is the first baby for Kaitlin and her husband of nearly three years, who took to Instagram back in October to reveal that they were expecting.

‘Well, I’ve been wearing pretty tents, not partying at weddings, eating everything in sight,’ wrote Kaitlin ‘and just thanking the pregnancy Gods that I’m finally not nauseas anymore beeeeccccaaaaauuuuussseeee…I’m growing a f*cking human inside my belly!

‘(Although now he really feels more like an incredibly strong fish…maybe even a baby dolphin) and he’ll be here around Valentines Day 2019! Wow, it feels pretty official now that it’s on social media I can’t believe I’m gonna be someone’s mom. Pray for us!’

Congratulations to Kaitlin, Devin, new aunt Portia and the whole family on their new arrival!
