McFly's Tom Fletcher and his wife Giovanna have welcomed their second child.

The happy couple announced the news on their Twitter pages on Tuesday and revealed that they had named their second son Buddy Bob.

Fletcher, 30, wrote "Player two has entered the game", while his author wife, 31, added: "What a beautiful day to be born... Welcome to the world Buddy Bob Fletcher."

They are already parents to son Buzz Michelangelo, who turns two in March.

Their "player two" statement referred to their pregnancy announcement video, which was filmed in the style of a video game.

Buzz has become an internet sensation alongside his father, gaining over eight million YouTube views for one video of Buzz laughing at a dandelion and together performing duets of Justin Bieber and the Commodores.

Friends and fans sent their well wishes to the Fletchers, including Tom's bandmate Harry Judd who was excited to introduce the newborn to his daughter, Lola.

Judd wrote: "Congratulations Tom & Giovanna on the safe arrival of Buddy Bob Fletcher! Lola can't wait to meet him! Buddy and Buzz."

Fletcher thanked fans, tweeting: "Completely overwhelmed with love for our second son Buddy, and can't wait for him to meet his big brother. Thanks for the lovely messages."
