Sam Bailey - who won 'The X Factor' last year - has given birth to her and husband Craig Pearson's third child this morning
'X Factor' winner Sam Bailey has given birth.
The 37-year-old singer - who came in first place on the ITV talent show last year - has welcomed her new daughter with husband Craig Pearson into the world after announcing her pregnancy earlier this year.
The happy news was announced on her official Twitter page, which read: "Sam Bailey gave birth to her third child, a beautiful baby girl, at 10.41am this morning. Both mother and baby are doing well. Team Sam x (sic)."
Sam - who already has son Tommy and daughter Brooke with Craig - will likely be relieved by the safe arrival of her baby girl after suffering a terrifying pregnancy scare earlier this year.
The singer was rushed to hospital in June after she started bleeding unexpectedly but was later given the all clear.
Sam and Craig announced they were expecting their third child together in March and previously admitted they've already decided on a name for their little girl, but are yet to reveal what it is.
Meanwhile, Simon Cowell's record label Syco - with which Sam has a £1million recording contract - have tweeted their congratulations to the now-mother-of-three.
The message from the official SYCO Entertainment account read: "Congratulations @SamBaileyREAL on the birth of a beautiful baby girl (10.41 this morning) x (sic)."
