Congratulations are in order for the musical couple...

Sophie Ellis-Bextor confirmed the happy news on social media, while also posting a cute image of her new baby.

Alongside a picture of husband Richard holding their son, she wrote: "He’s here! Mickey Jones born today weighing 7lb 1oz and he’s absolutely gorgeous.

"Welcome to our quirky little family, sweet boy. We’re so glad you’re here safe. Xxxxxxxxxxxx."

Sophie and Richard are already parents to their four sons Sonny, Kit, Ray and Jesse.

It was only a few days ago that Sophie appeared on Sunday Brunch, where she revealed she had no idea about the gender of her fifth child.

The singer also recently opened up about motherhood, telling This Morning: "After having four kids still I would like advice, people say 'you know what you’re doing' but do I?’.

"Every new person in the family changes the dynamic. So I don’t feel like I have it down. You embrace that you don’t know and won’t get it right all the time, but the intentions are good."

The 39-year-old star married Richard Jones, who is a bassist in the band The Feeling, back in 2005.
