The former leader of the Nationals and his former media advisor stay together even after their affair was revealed in early 2018
The newborn weighed just under four kilos and was 54 cm tall.
Sebastian was born in April 2018 and Mr Joyce has four daughters from his marriage to the now estranged wife Natalie.
Joyce told reporters on Sunday that he & # 39; is looking forward to Tom and Seb throwing paint in the backyard & # 39 ;.
The New England Member of Parliament resigned as Deputy Prime Minister and Nationality Leader. In February, revelations appeared about his affair with Mrs. Campion – who was pregnant with his child at the time.
During his resignation, the former Deputy Prime Minister asked that his departure be the & # 39; circuit breaker & # 39; would be for reporting on his new relationship and unborn son.
& # 39; I would say it is absolutely important, it is incredibly important that there is a circuit breaker, not just for parliament, but more importantly, a circuit breaker for Vikki, for my unborn child, my daughters and for Wet & # 39; , he said.
& # 39; This must stop. It is not fair to them. It is just complete and completely unfounded, the kind of observation that has happened. & # 39;

The politician published a public apology to his wife and children and said he felt deeply sorry for all the pain that this caused.
He also apologized to his voters for the & # 39; personal problem & # 39; that the public arena entered & # 39 ;.
Natalie Joyce later addressed the scandal in an interview with Women & # 39; s Weekly, in which she revealed that she had approached her husband's manes after telling their story.
& # 39; I turned to her and said: & # 39; My husband is out of bounds, forbidden, he is a married man with four children & # 39; & # 39 ;, and then I called her a house-destroying wh ***. It was not one of my nicer moments, but when I look back, I am proud to have stood up to her. & # 39;

Mrs. Joyce (pictured with Barnaby and their four daughters Bridgette, Julia, Caroline and Odette) later broke her silence about the scandal, revealing that she had faced her husband's manes after catching the wind of their case
The 49-year-old mother also revealed that she and her husband always intended to call their son Sebastian if they ever had a son.
When the name of their love child was revealed, Joyce said it felt like & # 39; another evil taunt in a very long line of horrible behavior & # 39 ;.
She told the publication that she decided to break her silence to the & # 39; beautiful name & # 39; to defend her family.
