"I can't believe he's here!" Nicola Roberts tweeted, while Kimberley's friend Denise Van Outen tweeted, "Beyond happy for you and Justin. Had a feeling you would have a boy! Enjoy every second."

Earlier this week, Kimberley had revealed she'd been having Braxton Hicks contractions and felt her baby was "descending south".

And her baby was, in fact, born on her due date – which all goes to show that her mate Cheryl was dead right when she told Kimberley, whose renowned for her punctuality, "If it's like you, then the baby will come right on time!"
