Huge congratulations to Sam Branson and Isabella Calthorpe! The couple have welcomed their second child together, a baby boy they have named Bluey Branson. Taking to his Instagram page on Friday morning, doting father Sam made the happy announcement, alongside a beautiful picture of his family.

"I am so incredibly proud and honoured to introduce our heavenly baby boy, Bluey Branson," the 30-year-old gushed. "He is such a gentle and strong little soul! Having children is the most awe inspiring and humbling experience! I feel blessed to see the creative force of the Universe at work again."

The new arrival is a baby brother to Sam and Isabella's daughter Eva-Deia, who turns two next month. In the post, the son of Virgin tycoon Sir Richard added: "Mama doing well after a very smooth birth. Big sis is very happy to have a baby brother, 'Mine Bluey!' Sending you all love from family B Welcome to the World Bluey Rafe Richard Branson! If you lead with love little Bluey, there is more magic and beauty out there then you can possibly imagine..."

Sam Branson has welcomed a baby son with wife Isabella

Sam and Isabella - the older sister of Cressida Bonas - welcomed their first child together in February 2015, two years after the pair tied the knot in South Africa, in a romantic ceremony held at Sir Richard's private game reserve.

Shortly after Sam became a first-time dad, he shared a heartfelt post written for the official Virgin website, writing: "It's strange looking at something that you know is the most important thing in the world to you but you haven't even touched them yet. It took that skin on skin for me to really connect with her and from that moment I have fallen more and more in love with her each second."
