Sophie Evans' sweet tribute to rugby star husband as they share name of new baby son

Welsh West End star Sophie Evans gave birth to her first child two days ago and now she's posted a sweet tribute to her rugby star husband. Sophie is married to Welsh rugby player Ellis Jenkins who plays for Cardiff Rugby and Welsh national team.

Hours after sharing a photo of her baby son and revealing he was called Jack, Sophie posted another photo of Ellis holding their newborn son. Sophie thanked her husband for all his support. She said Ellis was the "best partner and support I could have ever wished for".

Sophie said: "Promoted from boyfriend to husband to DAD in a year! I can’t express how lucky me and Jack are to have you. You are the most amazing man and I just can’t believe we’ve made a person! A tiny little human that is now part of our gang forever. You really are the best partner and support I could have ever wished for and you’re just so handsome, here's to a wild few years babes. We love you x"

On Friday, December 30, Sophie announced she had given birth to a baby boy. The Rhondda-born singer posted a sweet black and white photo to her Instagram stories showing the side of the baby's head with the simple caption, 'We did it' and tagging in Ellis, who she wed in Cardiff last June.

Sophie, from Tonypandy, appeared on Britain's Got Talent in 2022 as part of the Welsh of the West End reaching the semi-finals. She and her other half, Ellis, first met as teenagers and got engaged on Christmas Day 2021.

They got married at Cardiff's City Hall, and the actress and singer looked incredible in a beaded dress from ASOS. The pair's wedding was a small affair with no bridesmaids or first dance, but the couple is planning a much bigger celebration in Ibiza in 2024.
