We're looking forward to watching Katherine Jenkins on Michael McIntyre's Big Christmas Show tonight, but as well as the star of our Christmas TV watching, Katherine is also a mum of two. The moment she and her husband Andrew Levitas welcomed a bouncing baby boy back in April 2018 was a highlight of our year. Katherine announced the delightful news on Instagram, by sharing a photo of her newborn son and revealing his beautiful name.

In a post, she wrote: "Andrew, Aaliyah and I are proud to announce the arrival of our gorgeous son Xander Robert Selwyn Levitas. His middle names honour our late fathers who live on in our little 'Defender of Men' (Meaning of Xander)." She continued: "Our family, our home and are hearts could not be more full of love & we are incredibly grateful for the gift of being parents to these beautiful children."

Katherine revealed her son's name on Instagram

Katherine, 37, announced her pregnancy back in November 2017, revealing at the time that she was expecting a baby brother for her daughter Aaliyah. Last month, she celebrated her blue-themed baby shower and took to Instagram to post photos from the celebrations. She thanked her girlfriends for pulling out all the stops as she wrote: "Words can't express the gratitude I feel for my dear friends @eileenmeidar & @ingetheron76 throwing me the most beautiful baby blue shower I've ever seen this afternoon." She added: "How blessed I am to have you and such an amazing gang of girlfriends in my life! Thank you!"

Katherine opened up about motherhood in an interview with HELLO!, and said: "Everybody says, 'Your life will never be the same,' but I didn't expect to feel so chilled and relaxed about life. My husband and I love being parents and Aaliyah makes us so happy. She's fun, kind and affectionate – and a mummy's girl." On having another baby, the songstress admitted: "It's all about timing, but I would really love to have a second child and for Aaliyah to have a sibling, to have a friend in the world."
