Broadcaster and comedian Em Rusciano has welcomed her fourth child, celebrating with lots of smooches and snuggles … and a bunch of brilliant Instagram updates.
“Our hearts are bursting”
After battling through the last few weeks of pregnancy – as most of us do – Em gave birth on Friday sharing the first photo of her little guy on Instagram to announce his safe arrival.
“He’s here!! Elio Arthur Rusciano-Barrow 3.5kg, totally gorgeous and practically perfect in every way,” she captioned the photo of her and Elio having a first cuddle.
“Our hearts are bursting, he’s just magic.”
And LOOK AT HIM. He does look very magical and incredibly sweet. #melt
“He’s so perfect”
Em then began the delicious visual onslaught we know as ‘baby spam’ … and we could not love it more!
She posted an Instagram story video-debuting her beautiful boy to followers.
“Everyone’s cleared out for a bit so I’d like to introduce you to my son, Elio,” an utterly stoked Em whispered. “Or Elio if you’re a proper wog … He’s so perfect I think my heart might burst.”
And also shared a selection of lovely photos of Elio with his siblings …
“Just when you think you’ve felt ALL the emotions you’re two big girls meet your little boy for the first time.. MY HEART!” she posted.

“Madly in love”
A sweet clip of the new lad having the traditional first birth with his daddy was particularly heart-melting.
“Those first bath feels,” she wrote alongside the video of Elio soaking up the experience approvingly.
Yesterday an Em update confirmed that her milk had indeed arrived and it was as emotional as you’d expect.
“Day 3 report: Milk coming in, emotional wreck, madly in love,” she posted.
Em is also mum to 16-year-old Marchella and 11-year-old Odette with partner Scott Barrow. The couple sadly lost their third child – a little boy named Ray – during pregnancy.
We’re so thrilled for this cute family who are obviously over the moon about their newest edition. Scroll on for all the sweet pics.
Welcome to the world, wee Elio!
