Pregnant Sam Bailey and her baby bump made an appearance on ITV's Daybreak earlier this morning, where she revealed her delight at Sharon Osbourne agreeing to be her child's godmother.

X Factor winner Sam waved at photographers as she arrived at the central London studios bright and early on Thursday morning (20 March).

She dressed her growing baby bump in a red leopard print jumper; the only pop of colour in an otherwise black outfit.

While chatting on the sofa, Sam explained why she wanted her X Factor mentor Sharon Osbourne to be her baby's godmother.

"I said in an interview I'd love her to be godmother but I didn't want her to think I was asking for the wrong reasons. She's the one who accepted me at the beginning, supported me the whole way through - I wouldn't be where I am now if it hadn't been for her decision to keep me, She has a lot to answer for."

And Sharon was more than happy to accept, tweeting a response to Sam shortly after reading the interview.

"I would be honoured to be your baby's Godmother!" said Sharon.

Sam told Daybreak that she'd had to double check the message had really come from Sharon. "I text her just to check it was her that had done it and she said, 'Yes, I'd love to'. So she's going to be godmother and I'm absolutely over the moon."

The former prison officer was on Daybreak to promote her debut album The Power of Love, which is released on 24 March. She also performed the track 'From This Moment On'.

Sam won X Factor's tenth series under Sharon's tutelage in December 2013. Her debut single 'Skyscraper', a cover of the Demi Lovato track, was Christmas number one.
