Howard Donald has become a father for the fourth time.

The Take That singer and his wife Katie Halil welcomed son Dougie Bear into the world on Tuesday (22.02.17) and couldn't be happier.

Howard revealed on Twitter: ''Hello Dougie Bear Donald! He's here and he's beautiful! He arrived yesterday morning and we are over the Pluto. X (sic)''

Howard announced last October that he and Katie were expecting their second child together, just 10 months after their son Bowie was born.

He tweeted at the time: ''Guess what? Me and katie are happy to announce we will have our 2nd child in Feb. Yay! No more sleep for another 2 years! (sic)''

The 48-year-old singer - who also has two daughters, Grace, 18, and Lola, 12, from past relationships - moaned about sleepless nights after announcing the birth of his son, who was named in honour of iconic singer David Bowie, who had died of cancer just two days before the baby was born.

He tweeted at the time: ''Bowie Taylan Donald came into this world on Tues 12th Jan. Mummy and daddy suffering sleep deprivation but life is wonderful, he is divine.''

Earlier that week, the 'Never Forget' hitmaker had paid tribute to ''genius'' singer David and recalled the time he and former bandmate Jason Orange met the 'Moonage Daydream' hitmaker.

He tweeted: ''Feel very honoured that I have a photo of me and jay with David Bowie. When we did TOTP. What a genius and a great loss. RIP.(sic)''

Howard and Katie were married in January 2015 in a secret two-day wedding.

The couple met while Take That were filming Marks & Spencer Christmas TV advert in 2008, but only started dating in 2010.
