Star boxer Sophie Finally welcome her Fifth Son with Hubby Richard Jones. Sophie Ellis-Bextor has welomed her fifth child with husband Richard Jones.
The singer confirmed the arrival of her son Mickey Jones on
Instagram on Monday, as she gushed her baby boy is ‘absolutely gorgeous’ while sharing a sweet snap of her newborn.
In her post, Sophie’s beau is seen cradling their new arrival, with the beauty penning alongside her upload: ‘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.’
The arrival of Sophie’s newborn may come as a shock to fans, as the Murder on the Dancefloor hit-maker was seen appearing on Sunday Brunch Live just 24 hours prior to giving birth.She had appeared on the Channel 4 Sunday morning show alongside hosts Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer and fellow guests; Gemma Atkinson, Eamonn Holmes and wife Ruth Langsford, Spencer Matthews and his wife Vogue Williams, and singer Jade Bird.
Sophie had cut a glamorous figure on the show, revealing that she was unaware of her unborn baby’s sex. Quizzed about whether she was having a boy or a girl, Sophie replied: ‘This one is… a baby, for sure. I don’t know what I’m having. I’ve never found out.’On announcing her baby joy, Sophie has been inundated with congratulatory messages from fans. She is already mum to four boys she shares with husband Richard; Sonny, 14, Kit, nine, Ray, six, and Jesse, two.
Mickey’s arrival comes after Sophie insisted she ‘doesn’t get parenting right all the time’ in a candid interview on ITV’s This Morning last month.
She confessed: ‘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.’She also confessed she gets frustrated with the constant questions around juggling work and babies for women, when ‘my husband has never been asked about the children and he took them on tour with him.’
‘The answer to how do you manage it all, is boring for every working parent. You sort childcare,’ she pointed out, revealing her mum, former Blue Peter legend Janet Ellis lives ten minutes away and helps out regularly.
Sophie confirmed her fifth pregnancy in August – casually dropping the baby bombshell during an interview on BBC Radio 2.
Discussing her new music and its release, Sophie left listeners stunned as she announced her album, The Song Diaries, will be released at the same time she is due to give birth.Having kept quiet on her pregnancy until her interview, Sophie causally revealed: ‘The album will come out around the same time as my fifth infant because I’m having my fifth baby. Mental!’
Host Chris Evans asked the pop star if pregnancy and being a parent ever gets easier, given the number of her brood, with Sophie simply replying: ‘No, I don’t think it does.’
She went on to add: ‘But you get more relaxed with the chaos… says the woman who just – we just went away Richard and I with five kids, because our eldest brought a mate, and I took a book which seemed like the most optimistic thing I could have done! It didn’t even get open – that’s without baby. But I have got a two year old.’
