Ellidy Pullin took to Instagram on Thursday to announce the arrival of the baby, who was conceived after the Australian snowboarding great drowned while spearfishing.
“Hello, I had a baby,” the new mum said to the camera in a short snippet posted to her Instagram story.
A second Instagram story showed the newborn and Ms Pullin back at home, with a caption reading “and we have been a lil busy and tired”.

Ms Pullin also posted a video of her and Chumpy’s dog, Rumi, labelling her as the “big sister” of the newborn.
Chumpy’s long-term partner announced she was pregnant with the 32-year-old’s child back in June following a successful round of IVF.
“With a heart wrenching plot twist in the middle, I am honoured to finally welcome a piece of the phenomenon that is Chumpy back into this world,” she wrote to Instagram at the time.
“When my love had his accident, we all held onto hope that I’d be pregnant that month.
“We’d been trying for a baby. IVF was on our cards but it wasn’t something I ever imagined I’d be tackling on my own.”
Ms Pullin described the pregnancy as “bittersweet like none other” and she had never been “more certain or excited” about anything else in her entire life.
Chumpy, Australia’s first snowboard world champion, died while spearfishing off Palm Beach on the Gold Coast in July last year.
The three-time Olympian was found unresponsive on the ocean floor by a snorkeller.
He was pulled from the water and taken to shore, where paramedics performed CPR for 45 minutes, but the snowboarder could not be revived.
