Announcing the happy news on Twitter today, the singer said: "Our beautiful baby boy Bobby arrived yesterday afternoon. He's perfect."

Best friend Cheryl Fernandez-Versini was quick to reply: "He really is. He's perfect!"

Guess Cheryl's already been round to see the new arrival!

Also sending well wishes was Kimberley's close friend Denise Van Outen who tweeted: "Beyond happy for you and Justin. Had a feeling you would have a boy! Enjoy every second."

Kimberley out and about this summer.

Kimberley, 32, had not publicly revealed the sex of her baby ahead of the birth but fans had guessed it would be a boy because she'd Instagrammed a picture of blue baby clothes.

Fans had wondered if Baby Walsh-Scott was on the way as Kimberley hadn't tweeted since 30 August, when she gave a shout-out to best friend Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's return to X Factor.

Kimberley announced her pregnancy in February, saying: "Justin and I are so happy to let you all know we are having a baby!!! Couldn't wait to share our lovely news with you all." Kimberley also posted icons of a baby and baby bottle.

The 'Love Machine' singer had been doing pilates and yoga in the run-up to her delivery date, saying it had been keeping her active and strong.

She's planning to have a quiet end to the year, focusing on life with her baby and a "cosy" family Christmas. 'It's the one time in my life where I can take time out and not plan."

Congrats to Kimberley and Justin!
