Ewan McGregor has welcomed his fifth child, and first with girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

It is understood Winstead, 36, had not been photographed publicly with a baby bump and the couple had managed to keep the pregnancy a secret.

McGregor’s daughter Esther, 19, also shared a post on social media, revealing the baby’s name as Laurie.

Her message read: "Met my little brother looking like a pirate. I recommend!" she captioned three pictures. "Welcome to the family little Laurie."

The new arrival is the first for Winstead while the Star Wars legend shares four daughters with his ex-wife, Eve Mavrakis: Clara, Esther, Jamyan, 20, and Anouk, 10.
