Robert F Kennedy III and his wife Amaryllis Fox have welcomed a baby girl called Bobby just six months after getting hitched on the beach at the family compound.
The couple shared the happy news on Instagram and said the newborn was named after her father, grandfather and great grandfather and ‘would carry their legacy’.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr also shared an image of the tot, writing: ‘Spending my 65th Birthday with my children and my new granddaughter, Bobby.’
Former CIA operative Amaryllis, 37, who appears to have given birth via a c-section, spoke of the ‘magical hours and days’ since the arrival of her little girl.
If she carried the baby for 40 weeks, Fox would have been around three months pregnant when the pair got married at the Kennedy Compound on Cape Cod in early July.

Another source close to the family told Page Six in August Kennedy, 33, and Fox didn’t want to upset his grandmother Ethel Kennedy.
Posting about the birth of her daughter Fox wrote: ‘Baby Bobby arrived safe and snug on January 7th at 6:27 pm. She’s named for her father, grandfather and great grandfather, carrying their legacy into a future where women stand shoulder to shoulder with their fathers, brothers, and sons to do the work of love in the world.
‘May she hold in her heart their fathomless commitment to human dignity, peace among nations, and protection of our natural world.
‘During this pregnancy, Bobcat and I traveled many thousands of miles together, visiting distant corners of this beautiful earth, working with some of the world’s most poor and finding, again and again, human spirit so rich.
‘After that long journey, this littlest fur cub was born on the first day of epiphany, the season set aside by ancient christians to mark the realization that love vanquishes all. As I hold her softly breathing in my arms, surrounded by love in our warm den, that couldn’t feel more fitting.’

Amaryllis is thought to have been around three months pregnant when the pair got wed. Both Kennedy III and Amaryllis went barefoot on the lawn near the historic Kennedy Compound
About 200 family members and friends gathered to see the pair get married in July
She went on: ‘Every day, we, each of us, experience the mysteries of life, of love, of family, of grace. May we revel in the vastness of the great beauty we share, strengthened to bridge the small details we do not. May we do right by one another, friends and strangers alike.
‘Look after one another, protect one another, love one another the way we do our littlest ones. Because in the end, each of us is just a baby grown. Each of us, a caretaker in waiting. Destined to save and savor one another. United in a community I can only dream may one day be as filled to overflowing as our little bear pack feels tonight.’
The bride, who is a former CIA clandestine service officer, appeared to have no bump at the nuptials in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts on July 7 in front of 225 relatives and friends.
The couple tied the knot in a barefoot ceremony overlooking a beach.
