Kimberley Walsh has given birth to a baby boy named Nate.
The Girls Aloud, 39, star welcomed her third child with her husband of five years Justin Scott, 38, on May 28 and told OK! magazine that they now feel like their family is ‘complete’.
The couple – who first met at a gig back in 2003 – are also parents to sons Bobby, six, and Cole, four, who Kimberley joked are like ‘two little nannies’.

Speaking about her new addition, who was born weighing 7lb 4oz, Kimberely gushed: ‘Me and Justin said to each other yesterday that two just didn’t seem enough for some reason, but now we feel complete’.
Although she described the birth as ‘perfect’, Kimberley revealed there was some drama at the start when doctors found antibodies in her blood that were ‘unusual’ to be seen so late in her pregnancy.
As a result, she was was induced 10 days early as the type of antibodies she had could cause anaemia in the baby, which could have resulted in baby Nate needing a blood transfusion for Nate.

The singer also revealed she’d wasted no time introducing her little ones to her Girls Aloud bandmates, saying: ‘Cheryl and Nicola [Roberts] have come over. Nadine [Coyle] texted me the other day saying her little girl has put together a box of things for him, so she’s going to pop round, which will be lovely.
‘Sarah [Harding] obviously can’t get down at the moment but she sent me a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and we’ve been texting. I’ve sent her loads of pictures.’
Sarah is currently battling cancer, and has admitted she does not know how many months she has left to live after her cancer spread to her spine.

In late December, Kimberley confirmed her pregnancy in an interview with OK! Magazine, revealing she and Justin decided they ‘weren’t done’ adding to their family after spending lockdown with their two sons.
The singer delightedly told the magazine: ‘We chatted throughout the lockdown and said family is everything and we’re not really done, and we’d quite like to add one more to the fold.’
She added: ‘For the family, it’s been a bit of light in the distance and something to look towards and get excited about, and plan for.’

Kimberley explained that the chance to slow her career down in 2020 meant she reevaluated with was most important to her.
‘I’ve had a few busy years of working and being a mum. I’m of a certain age where it’s a bit now or never.
‘There was no way in my head that I felt like I was done,’ she said, adding that she waited longer in between having her youngest and falling pregnant again because of her busy schedule.
Kimberley said she knew she was pregnant the minute her period was late, but the couple waited to break the news to their boys until she was further along.
The pair set up a Christmas treasure hunt which culminated with a note left under the tree, which read: ‘Mummy has a baby in her tummy.’
Justin wasn’t able to be with Kimberley for her 12-week scan after a coronavirus outbreak at their sons’ school forced him to stay home.
The proud mum revealed her boys were desperate for a baby brother, and unlike her previous pregnancies she was keen to find out the gender at her 20-week scan.
‘We have to accept there’s going to be a few things like that thrown at us along the way. If you have a baby in these times, it’s not going to be straightforward,’ she pointed out.
Kimberley met her musician husband Justin at a gig back in 2003 and the couple have been married since 2016. The couple were both signed to the same label, Polydor, and romance quickly blossomed.
