She was due closer to Christmas Day, but at five weeks early, first time parents Michael and Kyly Clarke are said to have welcomed a daughter.
The news broke on the Today Show where host Karl Stefanovic, who is currently in Paris, claimed that "a very good source" confirmed the news.
"So I do have some very good news to report that has just come through to me,” he said.
"On a completely different subject - it is breaking news of the very best kind and I can report to you all back in Australia that from a very good source, that former Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke and his beautiful wife Kyly have just had a baby girl," Karl gushed.
Despite arriving earlier than expected, the host did reveal, "now she is five weeks premature but she’s in good health and mum is also in good health."
Kyly and Michael, both 34, are yet to confirm the beautiful news.
The pair, who married in 2012 in a stunning Blue Mountains-based ceremony, announced they were expecting their first child back in July on Instagram, with the cricket legend writing, "@kylyclarke and I are extremely ecstatic to announce that we are expecting our first child."
There's no doubt that the homewares designer is ecstatic to finally be a mum, recently revealing to the Daily Mail Australia she loved being pregnant.
"I think it's nice, you should just be proud - you're a mum-to-be and your growing and changing and you're actually just experiencing what a woman's body's meant to do," she told the website.
While Michael will be glad their bundle of joy arrived before the last week of December, like she was originally due, because of his participation in the Sydney to Hobart Yacht race beginning on Boxing Day.
"We’re hoping Santa Claus ­delivers our baby before I get on that boat on the 26th," he quipped to Sydney Confidential last month.
Kyly and Michael Clarke first met when they both attended Parramatta Westfields Sports High School.
The sporting icon also revealed to The Daily Telegraph that his only concern about Kyly falling pregnant was the health of both mum and bub.
"When me and my wife fell pregnant we weren’t worried if it was going to be a boy or a girl. The only thing that mattered is that it’d be healthy.I just pray that our baby is healthy," the 34-year-old explained.
No doubt being born five weeks premature would have caused the first-time parents some concern, however reports have confirmed the pair are doing just fine.
This is the next happy installment for the new parents, who first met when they attended Parramatta Westfields Sports High School together, and reconnected after the cricketer's 2010 break up with Lara Bingle.
Congratulations Kyly and Michael, we couldn't be more thrilled for you!
