Peter Andre and Emily MacDonagh's baby girl has arrived! We reported the story first thing this morning, but it wasn't confirmed by Peter until just now.
In a blog post, he wrote: "Now that I have had the opportunity to tell Junior & Pringles , we are very happy to announce the safe arrival of our beautiful baby girl:)
"We are extremely thrilled and mum and bubba are doing fine. We are looking forward to a nice quiet couple of weeks getting to know our baby. Thanks to everyone at Musgrove Park Hospital :)))"
The newborn girl brings Pete's brood of children to a grand total of three - there's Junior, eight, and Princess, six, who he had with ex-wife Katie Price. He also counts himself as stepfather to Katie's son, Harvey, 13.
The Mysterious Girl singer and his 24-year-old partner were thought to have welcomed their new baby into the world late last night, as an eagle-eyed patient at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton, Somerset, spotted the celebrity couple there and spread the news.
The couple have been together for about 18 months after meeting in 2010 through Emily's father, a surgeon who removed Pete's kidney stones – and works in that same Somerset hospital.
They announced they were expecting last July, which would put Emily's due date at some point in January.
People on Twitter and Facebook started posting last night to say they had seen the famous twosome – now a threesome – but Peter's Twitter account gave no hint of the exciting news until just before lunchtime today.
In fact, the only things he tweeted throughout the night were links to stories reporting he has written a song for the upcoming animated film Mr Peabody and Sherman, which will be released on February 7th.
Speaking about the song, Peter said that he's already seen the film and he loves it. "It is great to be working on something that I can see with my children and I am so excited about this partnership. Kid is a song about the adventure of being a dad, the mischief, the fun, the exhausting joy of what kids bring, and it’s very up-tempo to match."
So could he be taking the newest addition to his family to the cinema next month? Watch this space!
