Big Brother star Craig Phillips and his wife Laura Sherriff welcomed a baby boy earlier this week.

The couple, who already have a daughter together, have now given him a beautiful name – Lennon Thomas Phillips.

Craig and Laura announced the baby's birth and revealed his name to OK! Online before posting an adorable picture of the three of them on Instagram.

Craig captioned the photo: "Welcome to the world our beautiful baby boy Lennon Thomas Phillips born on Wednesday 2nd December at 5.41am, weighing 6lb 10.5oz.

"My wife Laura was truly amazing and I am so proud of her, Baby Lennon is doing well, and big sister Nelly loves her baby brother so much!"

Craig welcomed his first child, Nelly, with Laura last year, becoming a first-time father at the age of 47.

The reality show winner took the crown in Big Brother's first ever series back in 2000, but he told Digital Spy earlier this year that he was offered a chance to go back, but he turned it down.

In 2010, Ultimate Big Brother featured some viewers' favourite housemates from across the series and producers asked Craig to be a part of it, and he said although he was "honoured" to be part of the first series, he declined the offer.

He explained: "I kind of just thought about it and thought, 'I'm the only first Big Brother winner. That can't be replaced. But if I go back into the house, I can become another Big Brother loser. There's hundreds of them.'"
