Steps star Lee Latchford-Evans and his wife Kerry have welcomed their first child, a little boy, OK! can exclusively reveal.

The besotted couple, who have been married for nine years and announced their pregnancy in April, say their new son is 'perfect'. Singer Lee gushed, “We are so in love! He's everything we could have wished for. He is our perfect rainbow baby."

Lee and Kerry shared a stunning black and white picture of their newborn with OK, in which their little boy's tiny fingers can be seen clutching his mum's hand, as proud dad Lee cradles them both in his.

The little one's safe and healthy arrival came three years after Kerry suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage at 10 weeks, leaving the couple questioning whether or not they would ever become parents. Losing the baby came during an unimaginable four month period that saw both Lee's dad and Kerry's mum pass away.

Back in April Kerry told us, "It was a complete blur," while Lee added, "It felt like a nightmare."

Now the pair have their happily ever after, despite initially being convinced their child would be a girl!

Kerry said, "I was convinced I was having a girl!" And Lee agreed. "I think we just subliminally had girl in our head because everyone around us bar one person said it was going to be a girl," he said. "It’s cliché but we want a healthy baby, but I did feel really proud it’s a boy."

Lee also revealed the reaction of his Steps bandmates when he told them he was to become a father.

"We had a meeting about our year ahead and we were going through what we’d be doing in August and September and so on, and I said, “I might be quite busy in August,” and I held up our first scan picture to the camera," Lee explained.

"I said, “I want you to meet someone.” I filmed their reaction. They were fantastic. They cried and cheered!"
