American star Sofia Richie Grainge has given birth to her first child with her husband Elliot Grainge.

Richie Grainge, daughter of singing superstar Lionel Richie, welcomed her newborn daughter on May 20.

The 25-year-old announced that the couple named their baby Eloise Samantha Grainge.

Sharing a black and white image on Instagram of the couple holding the baby’s feet, Richie Grainge said: “20.5.24 best day of my life,” adding a white love heart.

Richie Grainge, who married her record executive husband in a lavish French ceremony in April last year, announced the news of her pregnancy in late January.

She said she took a pregnancy test when she landed in Los Angeles before an Ed Sheeran concert, before sending her husband to buy more tests when the result came back slightly positive.

“I found out very, very early,” she previously told British Vogue.

“I was about four weeks pregnant. She was traveling to Milan for fashion week and was going to the Prada show.

“I was making a very quick change in 24 hours and I felt terrible, but I didn’t think much of it. “I thought it was jet lag.”

The model said the couple shared the news with her parents when she reached the eight-week mark, but kept the news a secret publicly for months.

“Pregnancy is very scary and you have to protect that space,” she said.

Richie Grainge said the couple were shocked when they discovered they were expecting a girl, firmly believing it would be a boy.

The American star previously said she hoped to raise a “smart, kind person” and be a role model for her daughter.

A few weeks before giving birth, Richie Grainge shared a photo of her baby bump on Instagram and captioned it: “Nine months of happiness.”
