The new mother, 36, was seen in Cape Town alongside her new husband, where the couple reportedly introduced their young son. to family and friends.
A friend of the couple told Richard Eden of The Daily Mail: “It has been very moving for Chelsy’s loved ones to spend time with her husband and son.”
Chelsy was not seen with her newborn as she enjoyed a sun-kissed walk with her new husband in Cape Town on Monday.

The newlywed kept a low profile in a relaxed taupe hoodie and sweatpants, while her husband was sartorially in tune with his new bride by opting for a casual sweater.
However, Chelsy added a touch of glamor in the form of her dazzling engagement and wedding ring.
Zimbabwean-born Chelsy, who runs a luxury travel and jewelery business, managed to keep her pregnancy a secret and gave birth to Leo at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in January.
She only hinted that she was in a serious relationship in 2020, but didn’t give the name of her new man, explaining: ‘There’s someone, and this one has me quite captivated, but he’s very new and I don’t want to say too much.’

Chelsy kept her wedding private, secretly marrying her millionaire hotel partner earlier this month. She and Sam, 37, who was in the year before Harry at Eton College, live together in Chiswick, west London.
The blonde beauty dated Prince Harry for seven years until 2010 and has remained largely out of the spotlight in the 12 years since.

The couple welcomed their son Leo in January with virtually no one knowing she was pregnant and his birth was kept so private that his arrival was only known three months after he was presented to the local parish council in Norfolk.
Chelsy, who broke up with Harry because she didn’t want to be a real girlfriend, also maintained her relationship with Sam’s secret until it was revealed just three weeks ago.
Sam is the brother of Jack Cutmore-Scott, 35, the handsome Hollywood actor best known for his role in Christopher Nolan’s Oscar-winning film Tenet and the drama series Deception.
The brothers are close, and Chelsy is believed to have spent time with him in Los Angeles since meeting her now-husband about three years ago. They were first photographed together on a family vacation in Mauritius during Christmas 2019.
Oxford graduate Sam is managing director of The Harper Hotel in Holt, the family business, and the couple are believed to divide their time between a house in Chiswick and the Norfolk coast.
“They are married,” a friend told Richard Eden of the Daily Mail earlier this month, adding: “Very few people knew about the wedding.”

Chelsy found her man after an on-and-off relationship with Harry, who had told friends before they split in 2011 that she was “the best thing that ever happened to me.”
They met in London when they were both at school, but got together in 2004, during Harry’s gap year to Zimbabwe, where Chelsy’s millionaire father owns and runs a game reserve.
He became so serious that palace officials commented that he had started calling her ‘wife’ and she in turn called him ‘husband’.
It was clearly serious when Chelsy was not only attending Harry’s cousin Peter Phillips’s wedding to Autumn Kelly, where she was introduced to the Queen, but was also being invited to Prince Charles’s 60th birthday celebrations.
Famous friends: Chelsy recently married the brother of Hollywood actor Jack Cutmore-Scott, who starred in Christopher Nolan’s Tenet (pictured left) with stars John David Washington and Robert Pattinson.
But the pressures of their conflicting careers and long stints apart while Harry served in Afghanistan took their toll once again. It was also rumored that party-loving TV presenter Caroline Flack and other beautiful young women had caught Harry’s eye.
“I was fascinated by her wild, carefree attitude and rock-and-roll lifestyle,” a confidant of the late Caroline said at the time.
The couple met again in 2010 before splitting for good later that year, with Chelsy declaring that the life of a royal bride is “not for me”. However, she would appear as the ‘plus one’ of hers at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011.
But it was clear that she and Harry remained friends afterward, because she was invited to his wedding to Meghan Markle in 2018, when royal watchers wondered if she might have been the one walking down the aisle with the royals had things been different.
Sam Cutmore-Scott is director of his parents’ hospitality company, Bijou Collection, which owns four exclusive wedding venues: a mansion, mansion and abbey in the home counties and a chateau in the south of France. He and Chelsy live together in Chiswick, west London.
Party-loving Chelsy, who was born in Zimbabwe and now runs a luxury travel and jewelery business, revealed in 2020 that she had a serious boyfriend, but did not give his name, explaining: “There is someone, and I’m quite taken with this one. , but it is very new and I don’t want to say too much.
