Frankie Bridge gives birth to second child

Frankie Bridge has given birth to her second child.

The Saturdays singer welcomed her second son with her retired soccer star husband Wayne Bridge earlier today and has revealed they've decided to name him Carter.

Taking to Twitter to announce her good news, Frankie wrote: "Our gorgeous baby boy Carter Bridge was born this morning. He is absolutely perfect - Parker is so excited to be a big brother!"

The 26-year-old star announced she and Wayne - who also have 22-month-old son Parker together - were expecting their second child in January.

Frankie suffered from a condition known as hyperemesis gravidarum - which causes extreme nausea and vomiting - during the early days of her pregnancy.

Speaking previously about the illness, she said: "The condition kicked in at around six weeks and I was so ill they wanted to admit me to hospital. The only reason I didn't go is I couldn't bear the thought of the car journey.

"Weirdly, I had a phobia of being sick until this happened and the only silver lining is that being ill so often has cured me of that!"
