Take That star Howard Donald names new baby son Bowie

Take That's Howard Donald has named his newborn son Bowie in an apparent tribute to late singer David Bowie.

Donald tweeted: "Bowie Taylan Donald came into this world on Tues 12th Jan. Mummy and daddy suffering sleep deprivation but life is wonderful, he is divine."

It is the 47-year-old's first child with wife Kate Halil, whom he married in January 2015.

He has two daughters, Grace and Lola, from a previous relationship.

David Bowie died of cancer on January 10, aged 69.

Donald has not confirmed his son is named after the singer, but he wrote a touching post commemorating Bowie after his death.

"Feel very honoured that I have a photo of me and Jay (Jason Orange) with David Bowie. When we did TOTP. What a genius and a great loss. RIP," he wrote.
