Rachel Stevens and her husband Alex Bourne have welcomed their second child together.

Bourne revealed the news of their second daughter's arrival last night (April 1) via Twitter.

He wrote: "Delighted to announce the safe arrival of our gorgeous little girl! @MsRachelStevens and baby both really well. Amelie happy and 'cited'."

The couple added on the former S Club 7 singer's official website: "We're so happy that baby has arrived safely. Within minutes of meeting her we were totally smitten.

"Amelie is happy and 'cited to have a little sister to play with and we can't wait to introduce her to the whole family."

The couple have not yet confirmed the name of their newborn daughter, who was born weighing 7 pounds 7 oz.

Stevens and Bourne married in August 2009 and welcomed their first daughter Amelie in November 2010.
