Van Outen gives birth to daughter
TV presenter Denise Van Outen and West End star Lee Mead were celebrating after the birth of their first child.
Betsy Mead entered the world at 12.24pm weighing 7lb 10oz, representatives of the couple said.
Both mother and daughter are said to be doing well, with Van Outen saying she felt "ecstatic" following the new addition to their family.
The 35-year-old actress and presenter met her future husband on the reality TV show Any Dream Will Do.
Lee eventually won the competition to star in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. Denise was one of the judges on the programme.
The couple married last year in the Seychelles.
Betsy is said to resemble her father, sporting his brown curly locks.
Denise said: "We are proud parents and very ecstatic."
