  • @CosmopolitanUK - Twitter

Holly Willoughby has just given birth to her third child - a baby boy named Chester William. Willoughby and husband Dan Baldwin will now bring Chester home to join Harry(5) and Belle(3).

Willoughby broke the news to all her fans via Twitter saying "I'm sooo happy to tell you all - we've just had a baby boy! Chester William Baldwin made a grand entrance at 8lbs 12. He's just perfect. X". She then took a call from her co-host Philip Schofield and Amanda Holden live on air on her own show and beamed "Everything is just lovely. We're just in that lovely baby bubble."

Willoughby revealed that she did things slightly different this time around too by telling Schofield and Holden that she had a water birth. She said "It was a very exciting evening. I started having contractions at around nine in the morning. Then he arrived at 7.20. It was very different to my other two, I had a water birth and that was amazing and he was a really big boy. He's so delicious, I can't stop looking at him, he's perfect."

Fellow celebrities came out in force to offer their thoughts on the birth with Davina McCall tweeting "Chester!!!!!!! what a great name!!!! Well done!!!!! Hugs xxxxx". Wayne Rooney's missus Colleen also got on Twitter to offer her congratulations to Holly on the big news saying "Congratulations!! Fantastic news!! Lots of love cxx".

Willoughby just started her maternity leave just over a week ago so she certainly cut it fine with the timing. Amanda Holden, filling in for Holly on "This Morning" on ITV while she attends to Chester, also tweeted her congrats saying "Congratulations and much love to @hollywills dan belle harry and new baby Chester!! I'm delighted and thrilled!!".
