Sam Bailey gives birth to baby girl

Sam Bailey has become a mum for the third time, with the X Factor winner giving birth to a baby girl.

The singer has welcomed a new addition to the family nine months after she was declared the victor in the 2013 series of the contest.

Former prison officer Sam, who lives in Leicester, already has children Tommy and Brooke with her husband Craig Pearson.

A message posted online on her behalf said: "Sam Bailey gave birth to her third child, a beautiful baby girl, at 10.41am this morning. Both mother and baby are doing well."

The 37-year-old scored a number one with her debut single Skyscraper following her X Factor win, and topped the charts earlier this year with her album The Power Of Love.

She has previously admitted she was nervous about admitting her surprise pregnancy to her music bosses but they were supportive. She said: "I was terrified about telling management and started crying and apologising but they said it was brilliant news."
