Heather Morris has given birth to a baby boy.

The former 'Glee' star, who played cheerleader Brittany S. Pierce in the popular musical TV series up until last season, welcomed her son, Elijah, into the world on Saturday (28.09.13), with her long-term boyfriend Taylor Hubbell by her side.

A source told UsMagazine.com: ''She is really excited to be a mom. She is just amazed by the whole experience.''

The blonde beauty, whose previous career was a backing dancer for pop sensation Beyonce, has previously gushed amount how much she wanted to start a family with her boyfriend and said she was willing to give up acting to focus on her dream.

She said: ''I want to marry Taylor and have kids with him. I love acting, but if it affects my relationship, then I won't continue.''

While they haven't mentioned tying the knot, a close pal of the parents-to-be recently predicted they would walk down the aisle sooner rather than later.

The source said: ''I see it in their future.''
