JLS star Aston Merrygold announces birth of third child and reveals adorable name

Aston and wife Sarah Lou announced the news with a sweet video

JLS star Aston Merrygold has announced the birth of his third child and revealed their adorable name.

Aston and his wife Sarah Lou shared the happy news this morning (3 March) with an adorable Instagram video.

The pair are already mum and dad to Macaulay Shay and Grayson Jax and now, a little girl.

The singer and dancer-choreographer, announced they were expecting back in September with another heart-warming family video.

Aston had actually seemingly ruled out having any more kids back in 2020, after the birth of their second child.

The 'Beat Again' singer was asked by OK! Magazine about the idea of another child: "No. But that's from me.

"You wanna... If you ask Sarah you might get a different answer. But I'm here now so I'm saying no."

However, Aston did admit to loving fatherhood as he said: "It’s great as it could be to be honest. It’s tiring but it’s even more rewarding because you get twice as much love - it’s incredible."

And it seems the happy family of four are now even happier to become five.

The JLS star and Sarah wrote on Instagram: "Hello world, my names Riley Skye Merrygold."

A very cute video shows her little hand almost waving at the camera as they pull back the cover to reveal her baby grow with 'Hello World'.

Celebrity pals were quick to congratulate the pair, as bandmate Marvin Humes commented: "Love you all... couldn't be happier for you all... A GIRL!"

With his wife Rochelle also writing: "Aunties still not over it, we love you baby girl."

Giovanna Fletcher commented: "Congratulations to you all! Welcome to the world Riley!"

Fellow The X Factor star and mum-to-be Fleur East put: "Congratulations, beautiful! Xxx."

Gemma Atkinson wrote: "Beautiful! Congratulations."

And Kimberly Wyatt also said: "Oh wow!!!!! Congrats."

The pair are now parents of three.

Aston and Sarah Lou met over a decade ago, when she was a dancer on a JLS tour.

The 'Everybody in Love' singer popped the question back at Christmas 2017 and they welcomed Grayson Jax to the world the following year.

In 2020, Macaulay Shay was born and they've regularly shared sweet updates of family life on social media.

And after a five year engagement, Aston and Sarah Lou finally tied the knot with a stunning wedding at the Palm House in Liverpool.

With about 155 guests in attendance, the full JLS crew were of course there to celebrate the gorgeous couple - now parents to two adorable boys and a sweet baby girl.
