The little guy – a baby brother for the pair’s 2-year-old son Bodhi – arrived on Monday and weighed in at a healthy 8lb 4oz. Everyone is doing well, from all accounts!

“He is perfect!”

Teresa announced the birth in traditional style, posting a super-sweet family-of-four shot to Instagram yesterday.

“Our sweet littlest love is here. Forest Sage Palmer was born yesterday in Adelaide on 12/12 at 12:18pm weighing 8lb 4oz and 20 inches long! Our hearts are so full and blessed, he is perfect!” The 30-year-old star of Hacksaw Ridge and Point Break wrote.

The accompanying photo is heart-warming enough to melt the polar ice-caps, be warned!



Mama Zen

Teresa has shared a bunch of photos of her pregnancy on her Instagram account, and tracked her conception-to-birth thoughts via a super comprehensive pregnancy diary on her blog, Your Zen Mama.

“Bodhi was so excited to do a 40 weeks photo shoot and just kept on kissing me and snuggling with baby,” the actor wrote in her most recent (pre-birth) post.

“We walked around our property and took some gorgeous pictures, probably among the last ones of me being pregnant with this little man. Bodhi always whispers to me ‘I love you Mama and I love baby to the moon and stars and back!'”

She also posted a video update (from the bath tub!) sharing her thoughts on the final weeks of her second pregnancy.



A beautiful journey

Palmer and actor-director husband Mark married back in 2013 after first chatting on Twitter a year earlier.

“We began talking through Twitter,” Teresa told earlier this year.

“I tweeted about a trailer for a movie he directed and then he started following me and I started following him. He said, ‘You’re a vegan, I am a vegan, you are into spirituality, I am into spirituality, do you mind if I start emailing with you?’ And I said, ‘I would love that.’”

And so began a very modern romance.

“We wrote emails to each other before we met face to face. We chose not to speak on the phone because we wanted to hear each other’s voice for the first time when we were looking at one another. We fell in love with each other’s spirits as opposed to anything physical.”

Growing family

Mark has a son from his previous relationship with actress Frankie Shaw, so as of Monday he’s a dad to three adorable boys.

According to her blog, Teresa was more than ready to face the jump from blended family-of-four to cute gang of five, too.

“What a beautiful journey these past 40 weeks have been,” she posted.

“Full of growth, learning, connection and peaks and valleys. We have done so much during this time and to be able to carry life during all of these adventures and watch him grow has been such a magical and blissful time. I’m so moved and emotional thinking that any day now I’ll be meeting my new great love of my life.”

Congratulations to the Palmer-Webbers on the arrival of little Forest!
