Welsh singer Sophie Evans gives birth to baby boy with Wales rugby star husband Ellis Jenkins

West End star Sophie Evans has given birth to a baby boy with rugby player husband Ellis Jenkins almost two weeks after his due date. The Rhondda-born singer posted a sweet black and white photo to her Instagram stories on Friday, December 30 showing the side of the baby's head with the simple caption, 'We did it' and tagging in Ellis.

The couple, who got married in June 2022, have yet to reveal their baby's name. Just two days earlier, the Wicked actress was doing the conga at her best mate's wedding.

Sophie, 29, was due to give birth on December 17 and over Christmas she had been sharing with her followers her methods of gently trying to coax the baby along, including eating a hot curry and using an exercise ball to work out.

On December 28 she posted: "41+4 days pregnant - I’m part woman part exercise ball at this point. Trying to keep as positive and active as possible," as she mimed and danced on the ball, looking, frankly amazing. On Christmas day she joked about starting as a rugby prop at the Boxing Day derbies because she was so big, "Laughing at the fact I could be starting prop tomorrow - I can’t believe how big I look surely a sign it’s nearly time? Love you so much, truly our last Christmas as a 2. #swollennoselipseyesandhips Merry Christmas everyone x"

Sophie, from Tonypandy, also appeared on Britain's Got Talent earlier this year as part of the Welsh of the West End reaching the semi-finals. She and other half, Ellis, first met as teenagers and got engaged on Christmas Day 2021. They got married at Cardiff's City Hall, the actress and singer looked incredible in a beaded dress from ASOS. The pair's wedding was a small affair with no bridesmaid or first dance, but the couple are planning a much bigger celebration in Ibiza in 2024.
