Tony Abbott's daughter welcomes first child

Tony Abbott's daughter Frances has given birth to a baby boy at an American hospital on Sunday.

The 29-year-old and her husband Sam welcomed Ernest in Portland, Oregon.

In a post shared to Instagram, the former Olympic rower shared a photo of his wife holding their newborn.

“Ernest Loch – Born on his Due Date, July 11. Tipping the scales at an even 9lb,” he wrote.

“Brought into existence by his mum with nothing but breathing, coconut water and heart.”

Frances revealed her pregnancy news back in January, debuting her baby bump in a social media post.

"BIG LITTLE BABY LOCH 🌱 Joining the party Summer '21," she wrote.

The pair have two anniversary dates, given they had two weddings in 2018. They first held a civil ceremony on Valentines Day that year before tying the knot again on April 29 in front of family and friends in a casual soiree on Sydney's Palm Beach, where the entire wedding party wore Adidas slides.

Their first wedding came three months after she met the bodybuilder in November 2017 - they got engaged two later.
