Singer and X Factor winner Sam Bailey gave birth to her third child – a baby girl – this morning.


And the good news was announced on Sam's Twitter page just hours after the birth.

"Sam Bailey gave birth to her third child, a beautiful baby girl, at 10.41am this morning," the tweet said. "Both mother and baby are doing well. Team Sam x"

The baby, as yet unnamed, is a sister for Brooke, 8, and Tommy, 5.

X-Factor star Sam Bailey tweeted that she had been nesting before giving birth to her third baby

Funnily enough, here at MFM, we'd be laying bets that Sam would have her baby today or tomorrow.

How did we know? Well, just 3 days ago, the star had tweeted that she was "nesting", and posted this photo of some carefully folded baby clothes in a chest of drawers. And we all know that a sudden urge to clean and arrange the house is a sure sign that labour's on the way soon...

Congratulations, Sam!
