Black posted on his Instagram a photo of him and Daley holding Robbie, with just the top of the child's head shown, writing, "Welcome to the world little Robbie Ray. Thank you for bringing so much love and light with you. And thank you to those who helped make our dream of having a family into this wonderful reality. #AFamily #HappyBirthday."

Robbie is named after Daley's father Robert, who died in 2011.
