Myleene Klass has given birth to a baby boy.

New arrival: Myleene Klass has given birth to a baby boy, taking to her Instagram Stories on Sunday to confirm the news
Myleene already has daughters Ava, 11, and Hero, eight, with her ex-husband Graham Quinn.
A heavily pregnant Myleene was last seen taking to the red carpet for the Where Is Peter Rabbit? press day, almost two weeks ago.
She has been lying low on social media in recent days, prompting fans to speculate whether she had finally given birth.
The baby boy’s arrival comes mere days after the former Hear Say singer revealed she had turned to the old wives tale of eating a spicy curry in the hope of self-inducing labour to welcome her baby boy.
The talented pianist told fans she visited a restaurant offering hot Indian cuisine.

She simply showed the menu that featured traditional curry dishes such as chicken tikka, lamb bhuna and daal and typed alongside the choices: ‘Hope it’s spicy! Baby out!’
Spicy food is often suggested to be eaten by expectant mothers who wish to induce labour once their due date has passed – however there is no scientific research backing the theory and it is thought to be a pregnancy myth.
The thoughts behind it working is that spicy food stimulates the gut which can lead to the womb also being stimulated which can begin labour.
Myleene recently admitted she’s feeling ‘ginormous’ and how lucky she feels to have met her partner Simon after they were introduced by mutual friends on a blind date.

She also discussed how excited her daughters from her previous marriage, Ava and Hero are to be big sisters, saying her girls will be like ‘mini mummies’ when her baby son arrives.
Speaking in an interview on Lorraine, Myleene said: ‘They are over the moon. They are planning everything already. They are going to be baby mini mummies. They have come up with names too… Snoop Dogg, Jason Derulo.’
The new baby will be a third child for both the presenter and her fashion PR partner, but their first together; Simon has two children, a son and a daughter, from his previous marriage, who are of a similar age to Myleene’s girls.

Discussing her relationship with Simon, Myleene said: ‘I think it’s interesting that all the plans you make aren’t necessarily the right plans for you.
‘Sometimes the universe jumps in and says “actually I’ve got a better idea”. I am so lucky.
‘I was set up on a blind date because I would never have thought we were going to be right together. He has two children so I’m a step mum.’
The presenter and Simon first went public with their relationship in May 2017 and announced they were expecting their first child together on Valentine’s Day (February 14).
Four years prior, Myleene divorced her ex-husband Graham Quinn after their marriage came to a shocking end.
Graham famously walked out of their six-month marriage on her 34th birthday.
Myleene previously spoke of the devastating moment Graham walked out on her as she admitted: ‘I thought I’d never smile or trust anyone ever again’.
Speaking in an interview with Woman magazine, she added: ‘I felt so betrayed and so crushed. But I couldn’t wallow in it. I said to my mum and dad, “I’m broken, but I will not sink.”
However, the star revealed that it was her role as mother that helped her through that dark time as she continued to the newspaper’s Will Payne: ‘I just had to keep going because my girls would be up every morning asking me to make breakfast or fetch their recorders. My girls saved me.’
