Michael McIntyre is "over the moon" that Amanda Holden has given birth.

The comedian - who worked alongside the star as a judge on 'Britain's Got Talent' last year - is delighted the actress has welcomed daughter Hollie Rose Hughes into the world after she suffered a terrible 2010 when she tragically lost her unborn son seven months into her pregnancy.

Speaking at the National Television Awards last night (25.01.12) at London's The O2, he told BANG Showbiz: "I'm over the moon for Amanda after what's happened. She's had a tough year but I'm so glad that she's had her baby. I love her, she's a wonderful person."

The 35-year-old star - who won the Entertainment Performance award for his 'Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow' stand-up TV series - believes Amanda, who also has a five-year-old daughter Lexi with husband Chris Hughes, will be "thrilled" that her baby news "dominated the night" at the National Television Awards.

He added: "She will be absolutely thrilled that on a night like this she's stolen the show. I keep being asked, 'What do you think of the name Hollie Rose?'. So she will love that. She's dominated the night."

'Britain's Got Talent' co-presenters Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly also praised Amanda - who experienced complications during her pregnancy - and revealed she's "doing fine".

Ant exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Amanda's doing fine, we are all really happy for her."
