Hong Kong actor Shawn Yue and his wife Sarah Wang have welcomed a bouncing baby boy.

Wang, 29, delivered the 3.2kg baby via Caesarean section in a Hong Kong private hospital on Thursday (May 10) afternoon, Apple Daily reported.

The excited actor shared a photo of his newborn son and introduced him on Instagram: "Hi everyone, my name is Cody Yue."

In the post, Yue said that he felt indescribable joy when he first saw his child. He added that he was grateful that both mother and baby were safe and sound.

Little Cody's hand gesture in the photo also appeared to be a nod to his dad's favourite number - six.

When they heard the good news, the actor's showbiz friends were quick to congratulate the couple.
