Harry Potter star Jessie Cave is sharing the "terrifying" details of her son's birth.

"Abraham 'Bam" Benjamin Our baby boy was born in the early hours yesterday morning just 40 mins after my waters were broken. Slightly extreme but so were his kicks throughout the pregnancy!" !" the actress, who portrayed Lavender Brown in the beloved series, wrote in an Oct. 22 Instagram post. "This has been a very different experience to my first two births... much more humbling, terrifying and out of my control." 

The caption continued, "We are currently in the neo natal unit but he's a strong boy and it's the safest place for him right now. The midwives (Magda & Daisy) and the doctors and neo natal nurses have been amazing (our first one to welcome us into the ward was named Rosaria and she was extremely comforting). Thank you for all the cosmic well wishes."

Jessie also thanked her partner, comedian Alfie Brown, for capturing a photo of her and baby Abraham "seconds after he was born and just moments before he was wheeled away out of our arms." The couple shares two other children, Donnie, 6, and Margot, 4.


The illustrator ended the caption honoring mothers, writing, "BIG LOVE AND RESPECT for all the mothers who've experienced the neonatal unit before us, along with us." 

Though the mother of three keeps a very low profile—along with hiding the faces of her children in all of her Instagram posts—Jessie has been actively updating her fans on her pregnancy. She first announced the news back in June on Instagram with a baby bump photo, adorably captioned, "Oops I did it again."
