I have no idea how to even think right now let alone “do an announcement post” but I feel so close to so many of you - you’ve been my online fam for so many years and I’m beyond overwhelmed to tell you baby P has arrived and Me and daddy @philipapayne are taking time to be in awe that we are now a family of three and when I’m ready I cannot wait to share more details with you all on my home birth and this tiny human that we love beyond measure. I cannot thank you all enough of the love and support through this journey. During quarantine I made lots of content I’m still excited to share and knew that when baby arrived I’d want to take time off, so I have scheduled some YouTube videos like the one today about all my fave maternity dresses so you can have some glam options during pregnancy. And I’ll be uploading 2 baking videos too including my official banoffee pie that you’ve been asking about hehe. Thanks for reading all of this, we are all safe and well and just in heaven - it’s going to be a huge decision to figure out how much to share online with millions of people and as you know most of you have shown nothing but kindness but we also have received death threats and hate so I’m feeling super protective and never want my baby to feel like we over exposed them and they never got the choice whether they wanted intimate details or photos shared - so it’s new territory because I’m very open with you all about many aspects of my life and health etc... so thank you again sending you all so so much love ❤️❤️❤️

On Sunday, Iskra announced that she gave birth to her first child with music manager boyfriend Philip Payne.

Along with noting that they are “all safe and well and just in heaven,” she wrote on Instagram, “I have no idea how to even think right now let alone ‘do an announcement post’ but I feel so close to so many of you – you’ve been my online fam for so many years and I’m beyond overwhelmed to tell you baby P has arrived.”

“Me and daddy @philipapayne are taking time to be in awe that we are now a family of three and when I’m ready I cannot wait to share more details with you all on my home birth and this tiny human that we love beyond measure. I cannot thank you all enough of the love and support through this journey,” the 29-year-old added.

Lawrence did not reveal many details about her baby, like the gender or name. Iskra explained, “It’s going to be a huge decision to figure out how much to share online with millions of people and as you know most of you have shown nothing but kindness but we also have received death threats and hate so I’m feeling super protective and never want my baby to feel like we over exposed them and they never got the choice whether they wanted intimate details or photos shared - so it’s new territory because I’m very open with you all about many aspects of my life and health etc... so thank you again sending you all so so much love ❤️❤️❤️.”

Earlier this month, Lawrence opened up on her decision to have a home birth during the COVID-19 crisis. She wrote, “I am grateful I’ve always wanted a home birth (my mom didn’t use drugs/ epidural so I’m down for the challenge) and I know with everything going on right now more of you maybe considering it instead of hospital so I hope this video helps you feel a bit more informed and if you’re not preggo it might still be interesting especially seeing@philipapayne blow up the birthing pool with all the bits and bobs.”

Iskra announced that she was pregnant in November. At the time, she wrote on Instagram, “We were so shocked when we saw those two lines and we knew for sure we were having a baby. I’ve never been more excited to meet anyone, and Philip and I are in love with our mini baby P bump.”

Jennifer and Philip met at a 2018 Grammys party in New York City. In a YouTube video, she shared, “I was not meant to be there. The universe brought us together because I was in L.A. the day before.”

Sparks didn’t fly until months later when they saw each other again in Paris. She dished, “[We] both realized that we make each other so much better and bring out the best in each other.”
