Matt Bellamy has tweeted the first picture of his and Kate Hudson's baby Bingham Hawn Bellamy.

The proud dad posted up the picture of Kate Hudson and baby Bingham (shown above) next to the words "Family life!"

This is the first picture that has been released of the baby since he was born in Los Angeles on July 9 after 4.5 hours of labour, weighing 7IB 7oz.

Kate, 32, already has another son Ryder, seven, from her first marriage to rock star Chris Robinson.

A few weeks ago, Bingham revealed on Twitter that he was "so happy" after the birth of his first child. 

He wrote: "For those wondering, Bingham is my mum's maiden name.

"Bing Russell was also Kurt [Russel's] dad. Family connections all around!'"

Bingham's maiden name Hawn is a tribute to the baby's grandmother Goldie Hawn.

After the birth, Goldie Hawn wrote on her Twitter page: "Thank you all for your good wishes for the birth of our grandson! We are over the moon! Kate and baby happy and healthy! Blessings abound."
