Myleene Klass has given birth to her first child with boyfriend Simon Motson, and has revealed the new baby’s name in a series of new images.

Smooth presenter Myleene welcomed her baby boy on August 1, with her latest Instagram post confirming she has named her son Apollo.

Accompanying an image of herself cradling her new baby, Myleene captioned the post: “Apollo has landed! Xxx.”

The singer told Hello magazine: “Apollo is the god of music and science - my two passions.

“We thought it was such a strong name and at 8lbs 5oz, he was a strong, bouncing boy.”

Myleene went on to reveal that she had a “pretty complicated” birth.

She explained: “We had a really easy first three hours, to the point that I thought we would all be home by 7pm.

“But I don't remember what happened next. I lost five hours of my life and it was a pretty complicated birth in the end.”

The Smooth host has been dating fashion PR Simon Motson for over three years and is also mother to two daughters with ex-husband Graham Quinn: Hero, eight and Ava, 11.

Simon also has two children from a previous relationship, with Myleene previously commenting: “We've worked really hard at blending our family together.”

It comes after the 41-year-old posted a photo of her holding Apollo’s tiny hand, captioning the post with his birth date: “01.08.19.”
