Baby 'Bobby' delight for ex-Girls Aloud Kimberley

Former Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh has given birth to her first child - and says he is "perfect".

The singer, who named her baby boy Bobby, is the second member of her chart-topping group to become a mum. Nadine Coyle had a daughter, Anaiya, earlier this year.

Decade

Walsh (32), and her partner Justin Scott, formerly of boyband Triple 8, have been together for a decade.

Announcing her news to fans, she said: "Our beautiful baby boy Bobby arrived yesterday afternoon 04/09/14. He's perfect."

Walsh was one of the stars of Strictly Come Dancing two years ago, making it to the finals of the BBC1 show.

"My friends have joked that my baby would arrive on time because I'm so punctual, and he did! I gave birth on Thursday 4th September, which was my due date," she said.

She announced her pregnancy online in February and her former bandmates admitted they had been struggling to keep quiet about the secret, with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini - formerly Cole - admitting: "I thought at one point I was going to burst."
