X Factor's Sam Bailey names new baby Miley

X Factor winner Sam Bailey has named her baby daughter Miley – though she insists it wasn't inspired by controversial pop star Miley Cyrus.

Posing with two-week-old Miley Beau Pearson for Hello!, Sam said the name had nothing to do with her famous namesake, adding: "I just really like the name."

The 37-year-old said the success of winning the ITV singing show meant she could afford to have a third child along with nine-year-old daughter Brooke and five-year-old Tommy.

The former prison officer said: "I always wanted three kids, but before The X Factor we couldn't afford it. So I was resigned to the fact I would just have the two.

"Then next thing you know I find out I'm pregnant and I was like, 'Yes. I'm finally going to get my wish."'
