2 Shoes' Charley Bird has given birth.
The former 'X Factor' contestant - who alongside bandmate Lucy Texeria was voted out in the first week of the competition - and her boyfriend Greg Phillips welcomed baby son Beaux into the world yesterday (15.12.11).
Writing on her twitter page, Lucy said: "Can confirm, Baby Shoe - Beaux Phillips Bird has arrived! Both fine x So EMOSHE right now, and so proud of my shoe x Lucy x #babyshoe #beaux (sic)."
Charley found out before the Boot Camp stage of the ITV1 show that she was expecting a child, and joked she might name the baby after male 'X Factor' judges Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh if 2 Shoes progressed in the competition.
She said: "If I do well I might even call him Gary or Louis."
The 23-year-old blonde - who appeared on stage at Wembley Arena during last weekend's 'X Factor' final - also explained falling pregnant had made her determined to be successful.
Charley recently said: "It's made me want to do well in the competition even more, so that I can give my son a really good start in life. I can't wait to be a mum. We're both so excited.
"I told Lucy more or less straight away and she's been brilliant - we've even thought about naming ourselves 3 Shoes."
