MYLEENE GIVES BIRTH TO FIRST CHILD RIGHT AFTER PRESENTING TV SHOW

16 AUGUST 2007

Former pop star Myleene Klass became a mum on Thursday - three and a half weeks early. With her bodyguard fiancé Graham Quinn by her side, the 29-year-old TV presenter and model gave birth to a 5lb 9oz baby girl shortly after 1.45pm, whom the couple have named Ava.

"Myleene had a problem-free labour, and mother and baby are doing well," said her spokesman. "She and Graham are ecstatic."

Before she went into labour, Myleene - who modelled during her pregnancy for a supermarket chain and appeared naked on the cover of a women's magazine - had co-hosted BBC topical magazine programme The One Show.

"(She) felt a bit weird on the way home. She went to the hospital to get checked and they told her she was in labour," revealed her spokesman, adding: "her stint on the show is obviously over."
