“Our little one arrived safe and sound on her daddy’s birthday…” posted Jo-Ann Strauss on Friday…

She shared an adorable pic of the newborn sleeping on her chest. The little girl is baby number four for the happy couple. She was born on her father’s birthday! Jo-Ann’s hubby, Michael Held is a Professor of Orthopedic Surgery. The couple married in a small private ceremony at the Camps Bay Retreat Qoutique Hotel Read in 2012.

They welcomed their first son in 2016. He was followed by two younger sisters, and now the latest addition to the family.

“As far as gifting goes, I think she takes the cake,” said the former Miss SA, public speaker, and businesswoman.

“Thank you for keeping us in your prayers and for your kind wishes. We are still in our little love bubble and slowly re-entering reality, but for now, this blissful bubble is just what we needed to get to know each other.”
