It's a third boy for Sophie Ellis-Bextor.

The singer, 33, and husband, The Feeling bassist Richard Jones, 32, have named their new arrival Ray Holiday. The couple are also proud parents to Sonny, eight, and Kit, three.

Richard announced Ray's arrival on his band's Twitter page with the message: "It's a boy! Ray Holiday Jones was born today at 12:35 weighing 7Ib 15. Mother and baby doing great. We are truly smitten. Love to u all. Rx."

Just before giving birth to Ray, Sophie posted this blooming lovely snap of her enormous tummy on Twitter, looking ready to pop.

Thankfully it seems Sophie's nine months with Ray went smoothly. She suffered pre-eclampsia with Sonny, who was born eight weeks premature by emergency caesarean section, and Kit was also premature, weighing just 2lb, 10oz when he arrived nine weeks early.

Ray Holiday has quite a ring to it, but we're guessing his full name is Raymond. Bit much for a baby?
