British actress Jennifer Ellison has given birth to a baby boy.

The Phantom of the Opera star and her husband Robbie Tickle have become parents to a son named Harry, a brother for their three-year-old boy Bobby.

Ellison's friend Danielle O'Hara broke the news of the baby's arrival on her page on Tuesday (09Jul13), writing in a post, "Congratulations to my lovely friend... on the birth of Harry Tickle such a cute name can't wait to meet him well done babe."

The actress previously admitted she was stunned when doctors confirmed her pregnancy earlier this year (13), as medics previously told her she was unlikely to fall pregnant again due to cysts on her ovaries.
