In an Instagram post announcing the arrival of her newborn, TV personality Pearl Modiadie said: "To finally have you here feels incredibly surreal."
This is Pearl's first child with her partner.
"Welcome to the world my love...the purest of hearts. You're perfect in every way. Your father and I love you dearly," she went on to caption the post.
Pearl, who has kept most of her pregnancy journey under wraps, confirmed that she was expecting her first child after news of her pregnancy leaked to the media in June.
"She has decided to embrace the journey privately with her partner, family and very close friends for now," said a statement to Channel24.
In the photo shared on her Instagram, the newborn wears a onesie with the words "Hello Word" printed on the front.
Bonang Matheba, Pearl Thusi and Ntando Duma were of the first celebrities to congratulate Peal on the arrival of her first child.
