Former Liberty X star Michelle Heaton has welcomed a baby boy into the world.

The 34-year-old Just a Little singer, who already has a two-year-old daughter Faith, is said to be "doing great".

Taking to his Twitter page, Michelle's husband Hugh Hanley said: ''Our little man arrived this morning at 8.49am my beautiful wife @wonderwomanshel was amazing, I'm so proud of her. Both are doing great (sic)''

Michelle later took to her social networking account to thank fans for their well wishes, writing: ''Thank you all so much for your well wishes. Mine & @hughhanley little boy is snuggled into us and we are the happiness parents ever. Xx (sic)''

Heaton walked down the aisle with Hugh Hanley in the Bahamas in July 2010.
