X Factor winner Sam Bailey has introduced her newborn baby daughter in an exclusive interview and photoshoot with HELLO! magazine. She reveals her little girl is called Miley Beau Pearson – but says it has nothing to do with fellow famous singer Miley Cyrus, telling HELLO! magazine, "I just really like the name." Chart topper Sam, 37, says that she was only able to fulfil her dream of having a third child – she already has daughter Brooke, nine, and five-year-old son Tommy with husband Craig Pearson – because she won the hit ITV show last year.

"I always wanted three kids, but before The X Factor we couldn't afford it," Sam Bailey told HELLO! magazine. "So I was resigned to the fact I would just have the two. Then next thing you know I find out I'm pregnant and I was like, 'Yes. I'm finally going to get my wish.'"In the interview Sam also tells the magazine that little Miley has some rather famous godparents – including her X Factor mentor Sharon Osbourne. "Never in a million years did I imagine I'd be having a baby whose godmother is Sharon Osbourne," Sam said.

"I got told at 29 weeks that I had a 70 per cent chance of having the baby in the next couple of weeks, so I bought a load of premature-baby clothes and every day I woke up thinking, 'Am I going to have the baby today?'" she said. "I was in hospital at about 31 weeks for a few days because I went into early labour and had to have a steroid injection." But it was until three weeks before her due date – when the baby was 37 weeks – that Miley was born. With Sam's family complete, she revealed that she and husband Craig have no plans to have any more children. Read the full interview in HELLO! magazine out now.
