McFly’s Tom Fletcher has welcomed a baby boy as his wife Giovanna Fletcher gives birth and took to Twitter to share his happy news.

The 28-year-old wrote:  “Sorry for my twitter silence over the last 24hrs, I’ve been far too busy cuddling my son… :). He added: “Yep, @MrsGiFletcher gave birth to our insanely gorgeous son yesterday at 7pm. He is healthy, beautiful and I’ve already changed his nappy.”

Giovanna also took to the social media site to let her fans know how happy she was. She tweeted: “THRILLED to announce the safe arrival of our little BOY! Born last night at 7pm. I can’t stop staring at and kissing him! I’m in love! Xxx”

Recently, the new mum wrote on her blog: “It’s mindboggling to think that the little human I’ve been growing for the last eight and a half months is about to come out and meet us. I can’t wait!””

The baby’s name is yet to be released but #BabyFletcher has already started trending.
