SUGABABES star Mutya Buena has given birth to a baby girl, over a week premature.

The British pop star suffered a difficult delivery, but both mother and baby are said to be doing well. Buena's daughter, who's yet to be named, weighed in at 2.2 kilograms (five pounds 10 ounces).

Fellow bandmate KEISHA BUCHANAN says, "It wasn't an easy delivery, but Mutya's doing great now.

"She sent us a picture of the baby over her mobile phone. She gorgeous but so far there's no name."

Sugababe Heidi Range adds, "She's going to be a great mum. She'll definitely be bringing her into the studio, so listen out for the baby on our next album."
