Billie Piper gives birth to boy

Billie Piper has given birth to a son.
Television actress Billie Piper has given birth to her first child, a baby boy, with her husband Laurence Fox by her side.

The 26-year-old delivered her son, named Winston James Fox, by emergency caesarean in the early hours of the morning at London's Portland Hospital after a 26-hour labour.

Laurence told reporters outside the hospital that the baby weighed 6lb 11oz and was born at 0100 BST on Tuesday.

He said: "He is beautiful, he is sweet. Billie is happy, of course she is, she's a mum.

"I am tired but not as tired as her - I am a proud father. Mum is doing really well, no complications. Healthy, brilliant."

One of the new mum's first visitors was her ex-husband Chris Evans, who arrived at the hospital carrying a toy tractor for the baby boy.

He promptly wrote on his blog: "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."

Billie married the broadcaster when she was just 18 years old during her career as a teenage pop star.

After divorcing him and starring alongside Fox in the west end play Treats, they married at a traditional ceremony in Sussex on New Year's Eve 2007.

Winston James is the first child for both parents.
