She only gave birth days ago, but Lost actress Evangeline Lilly has already been snapped out and about with her adorable new-born, whose name has currently not been revealed.
The 31-year-old new mother took her youngster to a local supermarket in Oahu, Hawaii with her boyfriend Norman Kali.
The new parents looked the picture of happiness as they strolled around with their baby son wrapped in a cream and white printed blanket.

Evangeline threw on her stone washed jeans and checked shirt for the outing, while Kali also dressed casually in board shorts and a black T-shirt that said: ‘PIDGIN IS MY 1st LANGUAGE’.

The couple met while she was playing Kate Austin on the hit ABC TV show, where he worked as a production assistant.
Despite the worldwide success of Lost, which shot Lilly to fame, the actress said she wanted to stay out of the spotlight once the series came to an end.
She told E! News: ‘I want to have some quiet space. I want to drop off the radar a little bit and enjoy a little bit of normalcy.’
And she revealed on ABC’s The View last May, that acting was just her day job and she wanted to concentrate on writing and being a mother.
Evangeline then told Women’s Health: ‘I have always wanted to have a child of my own and I will always want to go through that gift that women have been given to experience that, so I hope to be a mother at some point.
‘I think I can allow myself one child – and from then on, I think I would have to adopt. It makes sense not to add to the population problem.’
Before dating Kali, Lilly was in a relationship with her Lost co-star Dominic Monaghan, 34, from 2004 to 2009.
They remained close friends after the split and continued to work on the show together until it ended last May.
While Monaghan decided to continue living in Los Angeles, Lilly has been staying in Hawaii, where Lost was filmed.
She told New York Magazine recently that she is happy to be moving on from the show that launched her career into the spotlight.
‘People are excited to try on the next chapter of their lives. This show is all-encompassing.
‘We have had very little experience outside of the show during the last six years because it’s just so demanding.
‘It requires so much of us. So, it’s exciting to have your freedom back, essentially.’
Butdespite wanting to step away from the limelight, Lilly has a new sci-fidrama hitting cinemas in October, in which she stars alongside Hugh Jackman.
The action film, Real Steel, is a boxing drama set in the near-future where 2,000 pound robots that look like humans do battle.
