Claudia Winkleman has given birth to a baby boy.

The TV host - who already has two children, Jake, eight, and five-year-old Matilda, with husband Kris Thykier – is said to be "overjoyed" with the arrival of her new son last night, whose his name is yet to be revealed.

Winkleman – who quit her role on 'Strictly Come Dancing' spin-off 'It Takes Two' because she would be too busy with the new baby – announced her pregnancy in March.

Writing on her twitter page, she said at the time: "Thank you very much for your messages. It's true I'm having a baby."

The 39-year-old star then added: "Although to be frank, on the scan it looked more like a goat."

Winkleman and Thykier have been married for 11 years – although they briefly separated in 2008 - and friends said they always planned to have a big family.

A source revealed: "Kris and Claudia were ecstatic when they discovered there would be a new addition to the family. I think it was always part of Claudia's plan to have a large brood."
