Jamie Redknapp announces wife Frida has given birth and reveals baby's adorable name

JAMIE Redknapp is a new dad again – 17 years after the birth of his last child.

The former footballer, 48, announced his new wife Frida Andersson delivered a healthy baby boy five weeks after their wedding.


The smitten couple have named their first child together Raphael Anders.

Sharing an adorable photo of him cosied up to his sleeping newborn, Jamie said: "Meet Raphael Anders Redknapp.

"We’re so In love, mum is doing so well too.

"We can’t thank the amazing doctors and nurses at the Chelsea and Westminster enough.

"So excited for him to meet my boys."

Newlywed couple Jamie and Frida, 38, got married in front of friends and family last month.

Jamie is already a dad to sons Beau, 13, and Charlie, 17, with his ex-wife Louise Redknapp.

Meanwhile Frida has three sons and a daughter from her former union with American hedge fund manager Jonathan Lourie.

Frida was Jamie’s first serious relationship since splitting from pop star Louise, 46, in 2017, with their divorce finalised two years later.

The former golden couple separated after 19 years of marriage after the singer took part in Strictly Come Dancing.

Frida was born in Sweden but has lived in London since her modelling career took off, and has posed for brands such as Escada.

She wed Jamie in front of 30 close family and friends at a discreet ceremony on October 18 at Chelsea Old Town Hall, west London.

Jamie's ex Louise revealed in her autobiography she regrets not putting more effort into trying to save her marriage.

The ceremony marks the second wedding for both Jamie and Frida – who was heavily pregnant at the time.

Jamie, 48, looked dapper in a fitted navy suit, while his other half stunned in a white wedding gown, with white court shoes and styled her blonde locks into waves that trailed down over her shoulders.

She wrote: “I wish I’d tried. I want to say to anyone thinking of running: Just slow down. Don’t run. Because once you run too fast, you can’t make up the ground you’ve lost.

"Stop, say what you think, don’t be afraid to say what’s really going on. You don’t have to be quiet.”
