Brynne Edelsten’s mother Mariel Gordon has met her granddaughter Starr Amari Gordon for the very first time.

Mariel arrived in Melbourne on Monday from Arizona where she lives, and shared sweet photos of herself and Brynne, 39, bonding with the baby girl.

The candid pictures of Starr appear to be the first images of the tiny tot on social media after Brynne welcomed her first child on April 21.

‘And this is what makes over 30 hours of travel worth it!’ Mariel captioned the post, alongside the hashtags ‘Starr’ and ‘family’.

In one precious photo, Mariel stood in what appeared to be Brynne’s kitchen as she cradled little Starr.

Another photo saw a casually dressed Brynne nursing Starr on her lap in a bedroom, while a further shot saw Brynne and her relatives posing for a snap with a Twinkie in hand. Twinkies are a popular American cake snack.

American-born socialite Brynne welcomed her ‘miracle baby’ on April 21.

She recently told New Idea that 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.

Brynne adopted the last name Edelsten when she married late Australian businessman Geoffrey Edelsten in 2009, and while she kept the name after their divorce, she did not think it was appropriate to pass it on to her daughter.

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 haven’t had a good night’s sleep since Starr arrived,’ Brynne said of motherhood.

‘But I wouldn’t trade being a mum for anything – I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.’

The pregnancy was delightful news for Brynne, who discovered during her high-profile marriage to Geoffrey it was unlikely she could ever conceive naturally. 

Connection: Brynne recently told New Idea that 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.

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

‘Even while pregnant, I couldn’t quite believe it was happening, but as soon as she arrived, we bonded and it all felt very natural.’

Brynne announced she was pregnant in December. 

Sharing a photo of her ultrasound on Instagram, she wrote: ‘Miracles do happen AND each is another day closer to meeting the love of my life.’

Brynne previously revealed she planned to raise her baby alone.

‘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.’

Brynne was famously married to medical entrepreneur Geoffrey Edelsten from 2009 to 2014. Edelsten died aged 78 last June.
