Kiwi musician Ladyhawke and her filmmaker wife Madeleine Sami have welcomed a baby girl.

The 'My Delirium' rocker, real name Pip Brown, announced her pregnancy on Instagram back in June and has now shared another post with the first public photo of her daughter.

"Our sweet little girl arrived October 20th, 3:27pm #labourweekendforreal," she captioned the image of the infant's hand.

The couple were married in Ladyhawke's hometown of Masterton in 2015, after previously living together in their Los Angeles home.

Fellow LA-based New Zealand musician Gin Wigmore posted a photo on Instagram in July, showing off her own baby bump alongside Ladyhawke's.

Before the release of her third album Wild Things last year, Ladyhawke opened up to Newshub about recovering from depression and alcohol problems to get into a "good head space".

Sami has starred in Super CityThe Jaquie Brown Diaries, Sione's WeddingOutrageous FortuneTop of the Lake and What We Do in the Shadows.

She has also directed Funny Girls and is co-directing the upcoming feature film The Breaker Upperers, alongside Jackie van Beek.
