Cerys Matthews gives birth eight weeks early

Thursday November 26, 2009

She may not have been prepared for it so soon, but I'm a Celebrity... star Cerys Matthews is celebrating the arrival of her newborn son.

Eight weeks earlier than expected, the 40-year-old gave birth just three days after she appeared on TV to co-present Children in Need from Cardiff.

The Welsh singer revealed on her website that she and her family "are doing very well and excited now to share this happy news with you".

Cerys - who announced she was four months pregnant by her 49-year-old boyfriend and manager Steve Abbott in August - is already mum to son Johnny and daughter Glenys from her first marriage.

The new arrival is yet to be named by the singer, but friends say "she’ll probably give it a similar Welsh name to the other two”.
