Billie Piper gives birth to son

ITV2 leading lady Billie Piper gave birth to a son on Tuesday, her first child with husband, and fellow ITV star, Laurence Fox.

The Secret Diary of a Call Girl actress had her baby delivered through cesarean section at the private Portland Hospital.

The couple have settled on the name Winston James Fox, who weighed 6lb 11oz and was born at 0100 BST on Tuesday, after Billie earlier stated that her pregnancy was "sweet, tender and adorable."

They married on New Year's Eve last year in Eastbourne with Billie forced to use body doubles in the second series of the hit ITV2 show when her bulge became too apparent.

The 26-year-old declared: "Being pregnant and filming scenes where you're having to be sexually provocative - when all you want to do is sit in a corner and eat - that was hard for me."

Meanwhile, hubby Fox has followed his turn in the hit ITV1 drama Lewis with a role in the new contemporary drama Wired that has launched to good notices on ITV1.

The couple were reportedly in a race to conceive with Piper's ex Chris Evans, who is expecting a child soon with his 28-year-old girlfriend Natasha Shishmanian.

The 42-year-old revealed on his blog: "At the time of this writing, the little fella is not even fifteen hours old. He is cute as you like and didn't cry once for the few minutes I was there which was just a few moments ago."
