One of the biggest life joys is becoming an aunty or uncle because it's a role that includes all the best parts of having babies without having any real responsibility.
It's basically one big highlight reel, which is something former Home And Away actor Lincoln Lewis can attest to as he welcomes his newest addition into the fold - a beautiful niece!
The 33-year-old is already the proud uncle to three nephews, so his first niece's birth is a monumental occasion.
On Monday night, Lincoln took to social media to share a precious snap from his first meeting with Sophie and judging by the look on their faces, they both seem completely besotted with one another.
You can already see that they share the same wide mouth and expressive smile.
"My first niece has arrived, and look at that smile!!! Welcome to the world beautiful little Sophie ✨ Surrounded by 3 awesome big brothers, 2 incredible parents and an amazing extended family full of love & joy," the actor's post said.
"Also a very happy Uncle Linc who can't wait to provide her with choccies, lollies, biccies, lots of giggles and then pass back off to mum & dad to deal with the inevitable sugar rush 😝."
"Bring on the cuddles! So much happy right now 🥰," the Dancing With The Stars: All Stars star captioned the snap.
Famous friends of Lincoln flooded his comment section with messages of support.
Erin McNaught commented, "Too cute! Congrats to the whole fam☺️💗," actress Michelle Monaghan wrote, "Omg!!!! She's so happy!!"
Actor Sam Webb shared a simple string of emojis, "🙌🏼🙌🏼."
Lincoln spoke to the Courier Mail about wanting to go on Dancing With The Stars for his nephews earlier in the year.
"When they asked me I wasn't sure because I'm not the most naturally gifted dancer, but the main reason for me right now is because I've got nephews and when I first did it I didn't," he explained.
"It's a really cool thing when they get a kick out of seeing Uncle Linc on TV and listening to their dad (Mitch Lewis) on the radio, so if I can do something that's fun and high energy and positive that they can watch, then that really got me."
