The Radio 1 star made the announcement via Twitter: “Jesse and I are over the moon to announce the arrival of Rex Rayne Wood born on the 21.2.13 ❤❤ beyond in love”
The new parents were snapped a few weeks later as they took Rex out for the first time, near their north London home.

April: Peaches Geldof and Thomas Cohen
Peaches Geldof gave birth to a bouncing baby boy called Phaedra Bloom Forever Cohen in April.
The model, who is married to rocker Tom Cohen, welcomed her second son into the world via Caesarean section on April 24, on what would have been her late mother Paula’s 54th birthday.
Peaches’ hubby, Tom, and sisters, Fifi, 30, Pixie, 22, and half sister Tiger Lily, 16, were all present at the birth.
The happy couple, who were already parents to then 1-year-old Astala, decided on the name Phaedra for their newborn because it’s the title of Peaches’ favourite album by the band Tangerine Dream.
May: Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum
Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna welcomed their baby daughter on May 31 and named her Everly.
Channing tweeted: “and baby makes three”.
The celeb couple had been living in the UK while Channing filmed Jupiter Ascending, spliting their time between London during the week, and retreating to actress friend Sienna Miller‘s Cotswold home at the weekends.
Jenna bared her baby bump earlier this year in a fashion shoot for US Glamour magazine, and chatted happily about her changing shape. “I thought my body was going to change so quickly with pregnancy that I’d freak out. But it was really gradual,” she told the mag.
“There’s a reason women are pregnant for nine months; by the end, you’re ready to have this baby.”
June: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Kim Kardashian gave birth to her first child in June.
North West was born weighing just under 5 pounds and was almost a month premature, according to the Daily Mail.
Two months later, Kanye West appeared on Kris Jenner’s talk show to share the first photo of Nori.
Kanye said he decided to share the photo to “put a stop to all the noise” – rumours he and Kim were planning to sell the photos. He said his daughter brought a lot of stability to his life. “To me, it’s such a blessing. I feel like it’s going to give me the stability I need to really create and do God’s work.
“Now I have two really special people to live for. A whole family to live for. A whole world to live for.”
