Aaron was born by Caesarean on February 28 and is the couple's second child – they also have a two-year-old daughter called Faith.

Posing for a photo shoot in OK! magazine, Aaron looks blissfully happy snuggled in his proud mum's arms, while Hugh and Faith look on.

According to the Parentdish baby name finder, Aaron is a biblical name, meaning mountain of strength. Speaking to the magazine, Liberty X singer Michelle confirmed that Aaron would be her last baby, and that she is planning on having her ovaries removed in the near future. Michelle carries the mutated BRCA2 gene, giving her a greater risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer. She had a double mastectomy in 2012.

Speaking about breastfeeding Aaron following her operation, Michelle admitted it had been a huge struggle, saying: "I cried when he tried to latch on – I can't breastfeed after my double mastectomy."

The Big Reunion singer also has a heart condition which meant a natural birth wasn't an option. She described the moment Aaron was delivered as 'amazing', telling the magazine:

"It was hard - I couldn't hold him because they were still operating on me and stapling me up, so I stroked his face and burst into tears."

Proud dad Hugh said Aaron's arrival was 'all we ever wanted', saying: "I feel more complete, especially now we know this is the last child."

Congratulations Michelle, Hugh and Faith!
