Baby boy joy for actress Ellison

Former Brookside actress Jennifer Ellison has had a baby boy

Actress Jennifer Ellison has given birth to a son named Bobby, her publicist has confirmed.

The 26-year-old, who found fame on Brookside, and her husband, Rob Tickle, were said to be "delighted".

The couple's first child was born on Thursday night and weighed 9lb, a statement said.

The full statement said: "Jennifer Ellison and her husband, Robert Tickle, are delighted to announce the birth of their first child, Bobby, who was born last night at 9.50pm weighing 9lb."

Former Hell's Kitchen winner Ellison wed Tickle last autumn in Mauritius in a secret ceremony.

The pair had planned to tie the knot last August but had to put their plans on hold due to work commitments.

But a few weeks later they found out they were expecting a baby and Ellison said previously she felt it was important to be married before having children.
