Hollywood star Megan Fox has finally revealed the birth of her son, nearly a month after it happened.

The actress confirmed the boy, named Noah Shannon Green, was born on 27 September.

Fox is married to the baby's father, US television actor Brian Austin Green.

"We have been very lucky to have had a peaceful few weeks at home, but I would like to release this myself before others do," a statement on her Facebook page said.

"I gave birth to our son Noah Shannon Green on September 27th. He is healthy, happy, and perfect."

Fox, 26, appeared in two Transformers films as well as movies Jennifer's Body and Jonah Hex.

She and husband Green, 39, married in June 2010 in Hawaii after a four-year engagement that included a brief split in 2009.

Green is best known for his role as David Silver in 1990s TV series Beverly Hills 90210.
