Kimberly Walsh welcomes her third child

The singer gave birth to a baby boy at the end of May.

Former Girls Aloud star Kimberly Walsh and her husband Justin Scott have welcomed a baby boy.

Walsh shared her news with OK! Magazine over the weekend.

Baby Nate is the couple’s third child, and has big brothers Bobby and Cole to look up to.

Kimberly told the magazine that her due date was 8 June, but had to be induced 10 days early due to a number of concerns.

“I wasn’t due until 8 June but when I had a last set of blood tests at the end of May they found these antibodies that hadn’t been there the whole pregnancy,” she said.

“They said it was unusual for them to show then, as usually they would treat them throughout the pregnancy.

“They took advice from the lab and paediatrician because the type of antibodies they were can cause anaemia in the baby, and the worst-case scenario would have been a blood transfusion for Nate.”

The singer explained that because she was so far along in her pregnancy they decided to induce labour. Baby Nate was born on 28 May, weighing 7lbs and 4oz.

Kimberly said that her family now “feel complete” as two just “didn’t seem enough for some reason.”

Her former bandmates ensured that she was surrounded with love and support following Nate’s birth. Cheryl and Nicola came to meet the new addition while Nadine and her daughter are set to visit soon too.

Kimberly shared that Sarah Harding wasn’t able to visit as she continues her breast cancer treatment, but she sent her flowers. The two are in touch frequently, and Kimberly has shared plenty of photos with her as well.

Walsh shared a precious snap from her OK! Exclusive photoshoot on Instagram yesterday.

In it, she cradles baby Nate, while Bobby and Cole cling onto their mum.

“Our baby boy is here and we are all totally besotted with this little guy and enjoying our little baby bubble,” she wrote.

“Our crew is complete.”
