Olivia Wilde and fiancé Jason Sudeikis are now officially proud parents! Olivia gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Otis Alexander Sudeikis last night, two weeks before his due date.

The actress who described her baby bump as a 'badge of pride' revealed she was a mum on Twitter last night by posting her black and white snap of herself and her newborn.

The close-up looks like it was taken just hours after the birth and shows little Otis nuzzling into to his mum's shoulder. She closes her eyes happily and he's got an adorable head of dark hair.

'Ladies and gentlemen, Otis Alexander Sudeikis has LEFT the building! (I'm the building),' Olivia captioned the image. It's already been retweeted more than 5,000 times and favourited more than 16,000 times.

She's not the only star to share a newborn snap on social media, Simon Cowell shared a picture of baby Eric just three days after his birth. It's not just candid snaps either. It's become quite a trend for mums to hire professional photographers to capture the birth of their little ones - and to photoshop them to beautiful perfection. No sweaty, red faces here!

What do you think of the idea? Is it a lovely way to share the private moment with grandparents, extended family and best friends who might not be in the birthing room. Or is it a new way for us to pile pressure on ourselves and overshare on social media. Would you share a post-birth selfie on Twitter or Facebook?
