Michelle retweeted her hubby Hugh who told his followers: "Our little man arrived this morning at 8.49am. My beautiful wife @wonderwomanshel was amazing, I'm so proud of her. Both are doing great."

Liberty X star Michelle only tweeted last night that she was not yet in labour. Michelle had posted the message: "Tick tock tick tock tick tock."

When fans asked if her baby was on the way, she replied: "Lol no peeps .. I'm not in labour.. Just bored of waiting lol xxxxx."

Well she certainly didn't have to wait long, as 10 hours later she had given birth!

Singer Michelle announced her baby news in September, saying it was a lovely surprise.

She told Lorraine viewers: "We're over the moon. It took a few moments to digest, but we're over the moon!"

Michelle and Hugh are already parents to daughter Faith, who turned two in January. Throughout her pregnancy, Michelle has continued working and performing with her Liberty X bandmates.

Their son's arrival is doubly special for the couple, as Michelle was diagnosed with having the BRCA2 faulty gene in 2012. In November of the same year, Michelle underwent a double mastectomy, as the gene means she has a high chance of developing breast and ovarian cancer.

Michelle has decided to have her ovaries removed, meaning this will be her last baby, and told Reveal in December: "No matter how daunting having my ovaries out is - and it is - it's necessary."

She added: "I'd be risking my life if I had another baby."
