X Factor Star Rebecca Ferguson Gives Birth To Baby Daughter Arabella


X Factor singer Rebecca Ferguson has given birth to her third child.

Rebecca, 28, gave birth to a daughter - who she has named Arabella - on Saturday (October 25). She is also proud mum to Lillie May, nine, and Karl, seven, from a previous relationship.

Arabella's dad is Rebecca's new partner - he has not been named and has stayed away from the spotlight.

Rebecca announced Arabella's arrival on Twitter with the messages:

Five days before Arabella's arrival, Rebecca told her followers that she was in hospital in 'slow labour'. She tweeted: "Slow labour feeling pretty blue in hospital everything is healthy and fine just need to rest and stay patient my angel will come soon xxx."

According to our baby name finder, Arabella means 'beautiful', and is a variant of Amabel.

Rebecca first found fame on The X Factor in 2010, and has since gone on to have a successful singing career, with hits including Nothing's Real But Love and Backtrack.

Congratulations Rebecca and family!
