Home and Away star Ada Nicodemou and husband Chrys Xipolitas have welcomed a baby boy into the world.

Nicodemou, who plays the part of Leah Patterson-Baker on the hit TV show, gave birth to 7lb 11oz Johnas at Sydney's St George Private Hospital on August 22.

Speaking to New Idea, Nicodemou said: "We're both still learning. He's learning how to be in the world, and I'm learning how to look after him. But it's just so beautiful."

She continued: "It was just instant love. I look at him and go, 'Oh my God, I don't remember my life beforehand - I don't remember being pregnant!' It's like it began from that moment onwards. I'm totally in love."

The Summer Bay star further added: "The best moment for me was hearing that first cry from Johnas. It was just so beautiful, I cried too. We're going to sound like typical parents, but he came out looking so gorgeous, perfect.

"You wonder about that bond when you're pregnant, but you don't really know what the feeling is like until you actually have a baby of your own. I can't believe that he's ours. I'm still in that surreal place."
