Sophie Ellis-Bextor welcomes fifth child. Sophie Ellis-Bextor has welcomed her fifth child with husband Richard Jones.
The singer took to Instagram to confirm the arrival of her son Mickey Jones, sharing a sweet snap of her husband cradling their new arrival.
She captioned her post: “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. Xxxxxxxxxxxx.”
The couple have four sons together, with their fourth being born in October 2015.
Sophie had appeared on Sunday Brunch just 24 hours before giving birth, where she was quizzed on whether she was having a boy or a girl, saying: “This one is… a baby, for sure. I don’t know what I’m having. I’ve never found out.’
She was asked whether her and Richard was trying for a girl, saying: “Obviously, we’re trying for a boy.
‘No, I would hate for any of my sons to think that they were an attempt to be someone else. They are all very wanted and very different… I will accept whoever is on their way.’
On whether she enjoys pregnancy, she joked: “I like the results” before adding “I love the fact that we have a very busy, eccentric, chaotic family. I love incorporating what Richard and I do into our family life.
“He has been touring with me for the last three or four years now, as well as doing stuff with The Feeling, I’ve been lucky to have him around… we’ll take the baby with us [on tour].’
Mickey’s arrival comes after Sophie gave a candid interview on ITV’s This Morning last month, insisting she ‘doesn’t get parenting right all the time’.
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.’
Sophie confirmed her pregnancy in August on Chris Evan’s BBC Breakfast Show, saying: “The album will come out around the same time as my fifth infant because I’m having my fifth baby. Mental!”
