Alyssa, 38, took to her twitter account to share her joyous news and also thanked her followers for their congratulatory messages.

She wrote: "Thank you for all the well wishes for my son Milo. My heart has tripled in size. I love him more than all the leaves on all the trees."

Alyssa - who married David in August 2009 - knew she was having a son throughout the later stages of her pregnancy but was refusing to pick a name for her baby until she met him.

She previously said: "We have three names. You hear so many stories about people who picked a name out and then the baby didn't look like the name. So we're narrowing it down until we see the child. However, we will go with a slightly Italian name, so that it goes with Bugliari."
