She captioned the image with a quote from Winnie the Pooh: "As soon as i saw you i knew a grand adventure was about to happen."

James was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma at 23 years old. She entered remission in 2015, after 12 rounds of chemotherapy over a six-month period.

The actor is to appear tomorrow as a baton bearer in the Queen's Baton Relay, in the lead-up to the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. She will carry the baton through Melbourne's Kings Domain.

A source close to the star confirmed to Fairfax Media that James has given birth, but the child's name and sex remain unknown.

James and Myles, 32, who have been married since 2011, announced they were expecting back in August. Fans congratulated the pair on Instagram.

James told Elle Australia last December that her pregnancy was a "miracle".

"I think that 'miracle' has come from the media and not from something that I've said, but in saying that, being pregnant is a miracle because growing a baby, it's pretty incredible when you think about it.," James told Elle.

"When you haven't had children and you see mums and kids everywhere you just think that's normal.

"But when it happens to you, you're like, 'Oh my gosh, all these women have done this? Wow.'"
