The singer-songwriter announced the birth of his baby son on Friday morning (15 January), poignantly revealing he'd named the tot after the legendary David Bowie, who passed away this week.
Baby Bowie was born two days after David's death.
Howard shared his baby joy via Twitter, saying: "Bowie Taylan Donald came into this world on Tues 12th Jan. Mummy and daddy suffering sleep deprivation but life is wonder. He is divine."
Thousands of fans were quick to like Howard's post and send their well wishes to him and wife Katie on their new arrival, with many applauding the choice of baby name.

Guesses on a postcard please."
