Clara, 27, confirmed the arrival of the little boy by taking to Instagram to post a sweet photo of the baby’s hands.

The French model then shared another picture of herself with a "cooking" emoji to signify the saying of having a "bun in the oven”.

The New Zealand actor revealed how excited he was for his unborn child's arrival, in an interview earlier this year.

Speaking to Australian Men's Health he said: "I've never been so sure of anything in my life, other than the fact that I want to be a father.

"It's a lonely place, this industry. Human interactions are no longer the same for me.

"I'm searching. I'm searching for genuine relationships with people who genuinely care about me and who I care about, not because of who I am or who they are," he added.

KJ shot to fame playing Archie Andrews in the CW drama Riverdale, based on the Archie comics.
