Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick have welcomed their second child into the world. 

The model, 30, and the retired tennis player, 35, announced the arrival of a baby girl via Brooklyn's Instagram page on Wednesday morning. 

Cuddling up to her tiny bundle of joy in a sweet snap, the What To Expect When You're Expecting star joked that she had a lot on her plate as the mother of a toddler and a newborn - as well as two injured dogs.

A source later confirmed to People the couple had named their baby girl Stevie.

Brooklyn wrote alongside the adorable photo: 'A newborn, a toddler, a dog in a cone, a dog with a tumor but I’m having a good hair day so it’s fine we’re fine I’m fine.' 

The model and actress looked utterly radiant as she posed make-up free for the shot, with her newborn baby girl snuggled up to her chest in a black onesie. 

One of family's pet pooches - bulldogs Bob Costas and Billie Jean King - could also be seen in the background with a cone on his head. 

The new arrival is a second child for Brooklyn and Andy, who are already proud parents to son Hank, two.

The couple began dating in 2007 and got engaged the following March.

A little over one year later, Brooklyn and Andy tied the knot on April 17, 2009, at the sportsman's home in Austin, Texas. 

In July, the couple announced they were expecting their second child and revealed they were preparing to welcome a baby girl a few months later.

Speaking in tribute to his wife at an International Tennis Hall Of Fame event in Rhode Island, Andy said: 'Brooke, I don't know how you juggle it all.

'You hear a lot of guys find it very tough to walk away from professional sports, but you are the reason my personal transition into a quasi-everyday life has been gratifying and full.

'Hank will someday realize how lucky he is, and our daughter that's coming will also realize she has the best mother on Earth.' 

Brooklyn recently praised her former sportsman husband for being 'wonderfully supportive' as a father.

Speaking in an with Refinery 29 in 2017, she explained: 'I have help. I have a nanny. I have a wonderfully supportive husband who is retired from his first career. 

'I'm lucky to be allowed to go and work because I have support at home, and by the way that doesn’t just come with the entertainment industry, or fame, or money.'

The model also praised stay-at-home mothers, adding: 'I think stay at-home-moms get a bad rap. I think it’s an absolutely thankless job. 

'Women stay at home, they tend to their children all day, which is lovely and luxurious, but it’s difficult work.'

Brooklyn is best-known for her modeling work in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and has more recently branched out into acting, securing roles in Just Go With It, Battleship and What To Expect When You're Expecting.

Former world number one Roddick retired from his tennis career back in 2012.
