Emily, who plays Marilyn Chambers in the popular Australian soap, has become a first-time mother, just one week before her 46th birthday.
"Emily Symons and Paul Jackson welcomed a beautiful little boy into the world," a statement read on Monday (3 August). "Mother and baby are both doing well."
Former Emmerdale actress Emily announced her pregnancy earlier this year, saying she "very much thought it couldn't happen" after "trying every avenue".
Emily and Jackson went through more than one IVF cycle before she fell pregnant. While this is Emily's first child, radio executive Paul has three children from a previous relationship.
