He captioned the shot: “My heart.”

His wife Lauren also shared photos of the new arrival, including a picture of the newborn wrapped in a pink and blue blanket and another of her cradling the infant.

She captioned the posts: “There are no words that will ever be able to explain what just happened to my heart.”

Paul announced the couple were expecting last year with a photograph of Lauren cradling a baby bump.

He captioned it: “Hey everyone. Look what I did. Words can’t express how excited I am that this little one has entered our lives.

“Just thought it was time I would share this beautiful news with all of you.”

The couple have been married since 2013.
