Singer Katherine Jenkins has welcomed her second child into the world, a baby boy with her husband Andrew Levitas.

The 37-year-old announced her happy news on social media, where she revealed her son's very unusual name to fans. She wrote, 'Andrew, Aaliyah and I are proud to announce the arrival of our gorgeous son Xander Robert Selwyn Levitas.' [sic]

Katherine then went on to explain the meaning behind her son's name. She added, 'His middle names honour our late fathers who live on in our little ‘Defender of Men’ (Meaning of Xander). Our family, our home and are hearts could not be more full of love & we are incredibly grateful for the gift of being parents to these beautiful children. Cwtches to you all xxx'. [sic]

Xander is the couple's second child together, the pair welcomed a baby girl called Aaliyah in September 2015.

It was then in November last year that Katherine announced she was expecting another baby with a super cute photo.

The photo showed the couple's daughter Aaliyah with the words 'Sidekick Coming Soon...' overlaid. In the photo the couple's two-year-old daughter can be seen running away from the camera wearing a red cape.

Revealing the gender of the future addition, Katherine then captioned the photo, 'Andrew and I are overjoyed that our family will be growing in 2018 with the addition of our 2nd child - a baby brother for our little superhero Aaliyah!!!'. [sic]
