Amanda Knox revealed she has welcomed her first child with husband Christopher Robinson.
The 34-year-old author dropped the news this past Friday’s episode of the couple’s Labyrinths podcast, which revealed the details of their new daughter’s arrival, Eureka Muse.
The episode recorded Knox’s pregnancy journey up until the eventual birth of her baby girl.
And while Knox announced the birth on her podcast, the New York Times reported on Friday how she and Robinson, 39, became parents months ago.
Knox admitted to the publication that she initially kept the birth a secret in part because “I’m still nervous about the paparazzi bounty on her head.”
Fourteen years ago, Knox was wrongfully convicted and then exonerated for the 2007 murder of roommate Meredith Kercher when she was a 20-year-old American student studying abroad in Perugia, Italy.
This past Friday, Knox posted to Instagram a photo of herself and Eureka taken by Ricardo Nagaoka for her New York Times profile.
“Since my exoneration, I’ve struggled to reclaim my identity and protect the people I love from being exploited as tabloid content. It’s not easy, and I often feel like I’m trying to invent good choices out of bad whole cloth.” she wrote.
“I know that I cannot 100% protect my daughter from the kind of treatment I’ve suffered, but I’m doing the best I can. Which is why this will be the only picture of her I will ever share on social media,” she added.
“I’m so grateful to everyone who has wished @emceecarbon and I well on our journey to parenthood. Thank you for believing in us.”
Knox and Robinson also revealed their decision to keep things private on their podcast, stating how they will not share any images of Eureka on social media as that is “a decision for her to make, many years from now.”
Amanda added of her newborn daughter, “She deserves the privacy and autonomy that I was denied.”
She announced her pregnancy in August on the very same podcast.
“Oh, thank goodness! Yay, we did it!” Knox excitedly said in audio from the moment they got their positive pregnancy test result. “That’s right, we’re pregnant,” she and Robinson, whom she married in February 2020, said in unison, adding at the time that they’ve been documenting their experiences “from day 1” and will share more soon.
