Sam Bailey gives birth to 'beautiful' baby girl

X Factor singing sensation Sam Bailey is celebrating the birth of a baby daughter with husband Craig Pearson.

"We are delighted to let you know that Sam Bailey gave birth to her third child, a beautiful baby girl, at 10.41am this morning (Wednesday 10 September). Both Mother and baby are doing well," read a statement from the couple.

The couple have two other children, Tommy and Brooke.

The new baby was unplanned, admitted the down-to-earth diva and was the result of passionate interlude on New Year's Eve just before her performance at G-A-Y in London.

Sam, 37, was scared to break the news of the pregnancy to her record company.

She said: "I was terrified about telling management and started crying and apologising but they said it was brilliant news.

"People have been cruel and said it's the end of my career but I don't care what they think. It will just make me want it more to be able to provide for my kids.

"I couldn't be happier. My kids are more important than my career anyway."

The plan is for the mother-of-three to have two months leave with her new baby before going on tour. Then her mum will come along with her on the road to help out. 

Her tour kicks off in her home town of Leicester where The Power of Love singer lives in the same modest three-bedroomed house she always has.

For now Sam has no plans to move because she's "a realist and it could all be over in a year".

The songbird, whose fans include Naomi Campbell, finds it strange that she has such a following. She claims that the only reason for her sizeable presence on Twitter is because of her friendship with One Direction singer Harry Styles’ mother, Anne Twist.

"I think people only follow me because Harry Styles’ mum follows me!" She added, "We’re friends [and] she has 1.3 million followers, so I've probably got a few One Directioners."
