The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge, 26, gave birth to a boy at four minutes past midnight this morning.

Already parents to a 21-month-old son named Parker, her footballer husband Wayne, 35, was again by her side this time.

And the duo have already revealed the name of the new arrival: Carter.

Ms Bridge is evidently feeling well and happy too: she's already back on social media – and this morning took to Twitter to say, "our gorgeous baby boy Carter Bridge was born this morning.

"He is absolutely perfect – Parker is so excited to be a big brother!"

Former professional footballer Wayne, who retired from the game last summer, and Frankie married in July of last year.

Unusually for pop-star/footballer nuptials, the couple kept their Big Day completely private. In fact, it was three months before snaps of their wedding emerged – via her Instagram account.

In a handful of posts, she described the ceremony and celebration, which was held at the lavish Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire, as "amazing," and made "even better," by the presence of their son.

They dated for four years before tying the knot.

The young singer is expecting baby number two with her husband, footballer Wayne Bridge.

And she has lately been taking to Instagram to share snaps of her growing belly, as well as further photos of her adorable two-year-old son, Parker.

Frankie said she has been looking to bandmate and mum-of-two Una Foden (she has a daughter, Aoife, and a son, Tadhg) for advice when it comes to managing two children under three.

Speaking to OK! magazine, she said: ''Soon we'll be a family of four so it's nice to see someone I'm so close to juggle work and having a family, because you never know how you're going to cope with two of them running around.

''Parker was so affectionate with Tadhg when he met him and he seems so interested in other babies. I'm hoping that means he's really going to enjoy having the new baby around but you never know.''

Frankie is also planning on adding to her tattoos once the little one arrives: ''I do want to get another one for Parker and the new baby, I'm just not sure what yet.''

Frankie also told Ok! magazine she has yet to pick a baby name and doesn't want people to think "Oh she did well with the first one but this one…'

The former Strictly star continued: "We have one that Wayne likes more than me, even though I came up with it. I'm not really stressing about it."

Despite baby news for some of the Saturdays ladies, Rochelle Humes is in no rush for another.

She has spoken to Reveal about not being in any rush to get pregnant again as she is currently content with husband Marvin and their two-year-old daughter Alaia-Mai.

When asked if Frankie and Una's baby news is making her desperate for another, Rochelle said: ""No not yet! Obviously I want more kids, but at the minute, I'm focused on the one I've got at the moment."

"I'm quite liking putting all my attention on her. The three of us are having so much fun," she admitted.

Vanessa and Mollie are the two members of the girl group yet to have children and Rochelle has said: "They're both really settled in terms of a relationship and have been for some time, but as far as kids, I'm not sure."

"They always say they like being the aunties, so I've told them to make the most of that for a little while!" she said.

Even though we would love Rochelle to have another baby, we are currently loving her adorable family. Her daughter turned two yesterday and had the most amazing Frozen themed party.

For now we are just awaiting the arrival of baby no.2 for Frankie. 



Recent news had surfaced that The Saturdays are taking a break and focusing on solo projects. 

Many people were worried that a split was on the cards for the girl group, but now Rochelle Humes has cleared up the rumours.

Speaking to OK! Online at the BAFTAs, she admitted: "The truth is, we've been batting away the split rumour before we even released the first album. Part of it is very true, we are all doing our own projects but we've never made a secret of that."

"I took the TV route, Frankie did Strictly and the girls are working on solo singles. That's all true," she added.

Directly addressing the rumours, the 26-year-old said: "The split up is not true. We're in such a lucky position that we're all doing so well and we're all adult about it."

She went on to describe the situation and independence as "refreshing". 


We can't wait to see how all the ladies solo projects work out and are delighted we aren't saying goodbye to The Saturdays for good.




Una Foden has made the decision to launch a solo career after it was revealed that The Saturdays are taking a break. 

The 33-year-old is going to stay with Polydor records to focus on an acoustic country sound with her guitar and song writing skills, according to the Mirror.

The singer already has a very hectic schedule as she was a coach on The Voice of Ireland, and mother to Aoife-Belle, 3, and baby Tadhg, 3 months. The Voice of Ireland 2015 ended at the end of April so we're sure Una is ready for some peace and quiet at home with her children and husband, Ben Foden. 

Una was selected in October 2014 to be a judge on the show for 2015 and we're sure she will be back since one of her acts, Patrick Donoghue, went on to win the competition. 

The Saturdays have been together since 2008, but it's not all doom and gloom for their fans. They are still signed to Polydor records so are not breaking up for good, just taking a break to focus on their own careers.

Una, Mollie and Vanessa are ready to launch their solo careers, while Rochelle is working on her growing TV career and Frankie is pregnant with her second child. 

While Una's music will have an acoustic sound, Mollie's will have an eighties pop vibe and Vanessa is choosing R&B. 

It will be interesing to see how this turns out for the lovely ladies. 



Could this be the most gorgeous family we've ever seen?!

Una Foden from the Saturdays welcomed her second child last month, a little boy named Tadhg.

Some professional photos of Una's new arrival  were alredy shared in a recent issue of Hello! as part of a spread featuring Una, her husband Ben and daughter Aoife Belle.

However the singer has now shared some candid snaps of little Tadhg being cuddled at home, and it's clear he's inherited his parents good looks! Last night Una posted this beautiful snap of Ben cradling his son, with the caption, "my heart could burst with how in love I am x"

Those cheeks – we're smitten!

She also shared a sweet picture of Tadhg on his own with the caption, "#Tadhg 5 weeks old". We can't get over his big brown eyes… what a beaut!

It's not just Una and Ben who are enjoying their new arrival – little Aoife Belle, who turns three tomorrow, is already settling into the role of big sister:

We're so delighted for this growing family!



Frankie Bridge from The Saturdays is currently expecting her second child, but her pregnancy hasn't been as smooth this time around.

The singer was forced to pull out of the Strictly Come Dancing live tour earlier this year due to a pregnancy-related illness, tweeting her fans to break the news at the same time as she announced her pregnancy.

Now Frankie has opened up about the illness, a severe form of morning sickness known as hyperemesis gravidarum, which Kate Middleton also notably suffered from during both her last and current pregnancy.

Speaking about one particularly bad episode, the 26-year-old told OK! magazine, "I somehow ended up lying on the floor with a bowl and I just couldn't move. They wanted me to go to hospital at one point and I refused because there was no way I could get in a car, I couldn't even get off the floor," she said.

Frankie said the first round of morning sickness was the most severe, explaining, "It kicked in when I was about seven weeks and that first bout of sickness was the worst. It's probably the worst I've ever felt. Even to move my eyes made me feel sick."

Frankie, who was replaced by Rachel Stevens for the live Strictly tour, said she is still excited to welcome her second child despite the rough pregnancy. "With the first pregnancy we were obviously excited, but I feel like we're almost a bit more excited this time because we haven't got that fear," she told the magazine.

The star already has a one-year-old son named Parker, with husband Wayne Bridge. The couple married last summer in an intimate country ceremony.

Frankie's bandmate Una Foden recently welcomed her second child, a little boy named Tadhg. We're hoping Frankie has a girl – how cute would that romance be a few years from now?!



Una Foden and her husband Ben have finally given the world a glimpse of their new son!

The couple, who are also parents to two-year-old Aoife Belle, welcomed little Tadhg earlier this month – and he's just as gorgeous as we thought he'd be!

Una, Ben and their growing family posed for the new issue of Hello! magazine and spoke for the first time about being parents again.

"The second he was out, I abandoned poor Una and all my focus switched to Tadhg," said doting father Ben, who revealed he was very hands-on during the birth. "I did my own check on him and cut the cord, as I had done with Aoife. Again, that was an incredible experience."

Speaking about choosing an Irish name for their son, Ben said it was an easy decision. "We were going over names for ages and I'd suggested Ty, which I really liked, when Una said, 'There's an Irish name that's very similar'. As soon as she said it, I thought, 'That's cool'."

Una and Ben announced they were expecting back in September, posting a gorgeous picture of little Aoife wearing a t-shirt that said, "I'm going to be a big sister."

The singer announced Tadhg's arrival on Twitter, saying she and Ben were "so so in love" with their new little one:

What a beautiful family!



Saturdays singer Frank Sandford turns the ripe old age of 26 today… and as well as making us feel like TOTAL under-achievers, it's also got us thinking back over some of the star's top style moments!

The Strictly Come Dancing finalist is well known for her amazing taste, so here's a look back at some of the moments she was totally on fleek…

1. The time she completely outshone all the other Saturdays
"I'll see your dresses and raise you an AMAZING polka-dot playsuit…"

2. The time she got winter style down to a T
We need that camel coat… now!

3. The time she still oozed red carpet glamour while six months pregnant
If we look half as good as that when we're preggers we'll be delighted!

4. The time she rocked this bizarre colour combo and still looked amazing
Blue, yellow AND red together kind of screams "Boy Scouts" to us but Frankie made it look classy!

5. The time she was part of S Club Juniors and yet was still a style icon
Spot her on the right! We lusted after those flared jeans with the floral embroidery for our Confirmation outfit…

Happy birthday Frankie!



It’s always an exciting time when your best friend announces she is going to have a baby. But when your best friend announces she is going to have ANOTHER baby?! Even better!

We are absolutely loving The Saturdays’ Mollie King’s congratulatory tweet to her bandmate and friend, Frankie who announced yesterday that she is expecting her second child.

Mollie took to Twitter to exclaim her excitement for Frankie, Wayne and baby Parker, hilariously tweeting: “Haven’t you two got a TV @FrankieTheSats!! So so happy for you, Wayney and little Parker! Xxx.” Very saucy Mollie – we love it!

It’s the reaction of a true best friend!

This will be Frankie’s second child with her husband Wayne Bridge but it seems she has been feeling ill and has had to pull out of the Strictly Come Dancing tour, tweeting: “Sadly I’m really unwell with my pregnancy and won’t be able to take part in the Strictly tour. I’m SO sorry. I was so looking forward to it.”

Frankie isn’t the only Saturday who is set to welcome a new arrival as her bandmate, Una prepares for the birth of her second child, a boy, very soon. 



Congratulations are in order for Frankie Sandford-Bridge, who announced this evening that she is expecting a second baby!

The Saturdays star took to Twitter to reveal the happy news, saying she was "so excited" at the prospect of another child.

However she also admitted she would be sadly unable to take part in the upcoming Strictly Come Dancing live tour due to a pregnancy-related illness:

The singer competed in the 2014 season of the show and reached the finals, eventually losing out to TV presenter Caroline Flack.

Frankie already has a little boy, one-year-old Parker, with husband Wayne Bridge. The couple married last summer in an intimate country ceremony.

We're so happy for Frankie, Wayne and their growing family!



Irish singer Una Foden has discovered the sex of her new baby, and she is delighted with the news! 

The Saturdays singer is expecting a little boy with husband Ben. 

That is going to be one handsome little man!

Una admitted she was shocked when she first heard the news. "I was actually a little bit taken aback when we found out we were going to have a son," she told Hello! magazine. "But now I'm over the moon and can't wait to meet our little boy."

Ben, however, wasn't quite so surprised! "Ben was adamant from the moment we knew we'd conceived again that we were having a boy," said Una.

The couple already have one child together, the adorable two-year-old Aoife Belle. Just look at that gorgeous family!

In a separate interview, Ben revealed how proud he was of his wife's strength and hard work. "Una's been great,' he said. 'Going on that big tour performing every night on stage is a big ask for someone who is carrying a child so I couldn't be prouder. She's done really well so far."

And if this tweet from Una is anything to go by, Ben was every bit the doting husband as the star celebrated her 33rd birthday over the weekend:

The couple announced they were expecting in September, by posting a sweet picture of Aoife Belle in a t-shirt which said "I'm going to be a big sister."
