Alice Dixson recently announced that she has welcomed her first child.

On 2 April, the 51 year-old actress posted a photo of her holding a print of a pair of baby feet, and wrote, “Despite the unexpected trials this year, God gave us a little miracle…”

“For those of you who really know me – you’ve known that I’ve been praying for this every year on my birthday for 10 years now. Each year – my wish the same when I blew out my candles. So with great patience, belief and trust – I am happy to announce my wish has finally come true.”

While Dixson did not explain much about the baby nor reveal her baby’s gender, it is noted that the actress did reveal in an interview a couple of years back that she and her partner were trying to have a baby via surrogacy.

“It was never about the way I would look after. It was about my age and my concern about the safety of the child, the wellness of the pregnancy,” she shared.
