Fearne Cotton has given birth to a baby boy.

The 31-year-old presenter and her partner Jesse Wood welcomed Rex Rayne into the world early this morning (20.02.13) and she is ''beyond in love'' with the new arrival.

Announcing the news on Twitter, she wrote: ''Jesse and I are over the moon to announce the arrival of Rex Rayne Wood born on the 21.2.13 beyond in love (sic)''

Fearne's close friend Holly Willoughby was one of the first people to send her congratulations.

She tweeted: 'Hooray! @Fearnecotton congratulations on baby Rex!!!!! Can not wait to meet your little man....love you! Xxx' (sic)''

And fellow DJ and presenter Dave Berry wrote: ''@Fearnecotton @WoodJesse Congratulations my lovers x (sic)''

Fearne and Jesse - who is the son of rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood - have been together since July 2011.

Fearne has previously spoken about how happy Jesse - who has children Arthur and Lola with ex-wife Tilly - makes her.

She has said: ''This time last year, I was probably quite miserable, but Jesse turned that around. I'm content for the first time ever - it's a really good feeling.''
