Little Starr was sweetly cuddled up in between Brynne and the family dog.

Brynne, the ex-wife of late Australian businessman Geoffrey Edelsten, captioned the snap: ‘Afternoon snuggles with my 2 babies’.

The influencer welcomed her daughter, whom she has described as an unplanned ‘miracle baby’, on April 21.

A few weeks later, Brynne’s mother Mariel jetted from Arizona to Melbourne to meet her granddaughter.

‘And this is what makes over 30 hours of travel worth it!’ Mariel wrote on Instagram. 

Brynne recently told New Idea she’d chosen to give her baby girl the surname Gordon – her maiden name – so she would ‘feel connected’ to her family in the U.S.

The former fitness instructor had adopted the last name Edelsten when she married the late Geoffrey Edelsten in 2009. 

While she kept the name after their 2014 divorce, she did not think it was appropriate to pass it on to her daughter.

Edelsten died aged 78 last June.

The identity of Starr’s father has not been made public. However, Brynne confirmed to the publication the man had met his daughter twice.

‘I didn’t think I had any maternal instinct,’ she told New Idea.

‘There’s no man in the picture,’ she said.

‘I told the father, though. I would never keep the father of my child apart – I don’t think that’s ever going to be something that happens.’
