Barnaby Joyce’s newborn son with partner Vikki Campion has been pictured for the first time.
Images obtained by Seven News show Sebastian sleeping in his mother’s arms at Armidale Airport as Mr Joyce looks on.
Sebastian, born about three weeks ago, is Ms Campion’s first child and Mr Joyce’s fifth.
When Sebastian was born, Mr Joyce told Fairfax Media: “We are very happy and just taking it quietly.”
The former Nationals leader said the arrival of the baby comprehensively removed any doubts over whether he was the baby’s father.
Mr Joyce said last month there was a “grey area” over the paternity.
Mr Joyce quit as deputy prime minister and Nationals leader in February after 16 days of scandal over his affair with Ms Campion, his former media adviser.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull later introduced a ban on ministers having sexual relations with their staff.
