Kayla Itsines has announced the arrival of a baby boy in a series of sweet Instagram posts overnight.
The fitness influencer said she went into labour early in the morning on January 5 and that her son, her first child with fiance Jae Woodroffe, was born in just under two hours.
“Words absolutely cannot describe this feeling. We are SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW,” Itsines wrote.
“The most amazing thing, as he was coming out, out of nowhere on a completely random playlist the hospital was playing, Jae’s dad’s funeral song started playing over the speakers.
“I heard Jae say at the same time ‘It’s a boy!!!!!’. I burst into tears, he burst into tears and we got to meet our baby BOY💙”
The content creator, 31, also revealed the name of her newborn is Jax Stokes Woodroffe.
In the announcement, Itsines shared a number of sweet snaps, including little Jax in a romper and Itsines and Woodroffe cradling the newborn shortly after his birth, and one of Itsines’ three-year-old daughter, Arna, holding her baby brother.
“Healthy and quiet and as for Arna … even though she said she wouldn’t if he was a boy… she absolutely LOVES him!!!” the mum of two wrote.
In another Instagram post, Itsines shared a clip of Arna – whom she shares with ex-fiance Tobi Pearce – cuddling Jax, in which the toddler says, “I’m loving my baby.”

Fans of Itsines melted over the video and the announcement of baby Jax’s birth.
“My little love 🥺🤍 I can’t wait to buy you a drum set my honey pieeeeeeee I love you so much already,” Itsines’ sister Leah wrote.
“Omg 🥺 what a story and what an arrival! Congratulations, he’s perfect!” Married at First Sight alum Martha added.
“Ahh YOU ANNOUNCED!😍❤️ the most beautiful baby boy. In love with him already,” a fellow fitness influencer wrote.
Woodroffe also shared the baby news on Instagram, writing, “Meet our BOY Jax Stokes Woodroffe.”
