Sy Scholfield quotes from Wiener Zeitung, 5 May 1781, p. 5: "Wien den 5. May. Bereits am Dienstage, den 1. dieses, ist aus Mayland durch einen eigenen hieher gefertigten Kourier die erfreuliche Nachricht bey dem allerhöchsten k k. Hofe eingetroffen, daß Ihre königl. Hoheit, die durchl. Erzherzoginn Maria Beatrix, den 25. April Abends von einem gesunden und Wohlgestalten Erzherzoge glücklich entbunden worden sey."

Translation: Vienna, 5 May. On Tuesday, the first of this month, from Milan, by means of their own courier, the good news was received from the royal court that Her royal highness Archduchess Maria Beatrix, on 25 April was happily delivered in the evening of a healthy Archduke.

A time of 9pm is speculative.
