Tiny baby alert!
X Factor winner Sam Bailey has introduced her newborn baby girl to the world in an exclusive interview and photoshoot with Hello! magazine.
Sam has revealed that she has named her daughter, who was born on the 9th September, Miley Beau Pearson – but before you go thinking that she is honouring a certain Ms. Cyrus, the singer insists that she just “really likes the name”.
The 37-year-old already has a nine-year-old daughter, Brooke, and five-year-old son, Tommy, with her husband Craig Pearson and surprised us all when she announced her third pregnancy less than a year after winning The X Factor and securing herself a million pound record contract.
“I always wanted three kids, but before The X Factor we couldn’t afford it,” Sam told Hello! magazine, “So I was resigned to the fact I would just have the two.
“Then next thing you know I find out I’m pregnant and I was like, ‘Yes. I’m finally going to get my wish’.”
But it wasn’t all plain sailing for the singer, who was warned that there was a strong chance that her little girl would be born prematurely, revealing: “I got told at 29 weeks that I had a 70% chance of having the baby in the next couple of weeks.
“I bought a load of premature baby clothes and every day I woke up thinking, ‘Am I going to have the baby today?’
“I was in hospital at about 31 weeks for a few days because I went into early labour and had to have a steroid injection.”
Thankfully little Miley held on until three weeks before her due date and was born perfectly healthily.
Although the dramas are far from over in this little one’s life as Sam also shared that Miley has a rather famous, and rather cuckoo, godmother – her X Factor mentor, Sharon Osbourne.
“Never in a million years did I imagine I’d be having a baby whose godmother is Sharon Osbourne,” Sam said.
Who knew that the pair were still on such good terms?
That is one christening we would LOVE to be a fly on the wall for.
And if you want a far too TMI insight into how Sam and her hubby celebrated her X Factor win then we can tell you that Miley was born almost nine months to the DAY after her telly triumph.
What ever happened to a glass of champers, eh?
