The British pop rocker's wife, TV presenter Emma Willis, gave birth to daughter Trixie Grace on Wednesday (04May16), as sci-fi fans celebrated what is widely acknowledged as Star Wars Day.

Reports of the newborn's arrival first surfaced on Saturday (07May16), and Emma took to Twitter.com on Sunday (08May16), as her man turned 33, to confirm the news.

"Thank you so much for all your lovely messages," she wrote. "Trixie arrived in the world on Wednesday. May the 4th be with her indeed!"

The baby's arrival was right on time, days before 32-year-old Matt prepares to head out on a Busted reunion tour with bandmates James Bourne and Charlie Simpson.

He recently told the MailOnline: "I can't wait for the baby. Emma is due on the fourth of May and we go on tour on May 11, so we're cutting it pretty fine, but it will be fine. I'm really stoked (excited) about it, I can't wait!"

The couple, which wed in 2008, also has six-year-old daughter Isabelle and four-year-old son Ace.
