Glamour model Jordan and fiancÚ Peter Andre have said they are "thrilled" after she gave birth to a baby boy.

The baby, as yet unnamed, was born by Caesarean section just after 1000BST weighing 5lb 13oz.

Jordan - real name Katie Price - and her son were "healthy and happy" and recovering at London's private Portland Hospital, her spokeswoman said.

The model, who has a three-year-old son, met Peter Andre on ITV show I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!

They plan to wed in September and have signed a six figure deal with a glossy magazine.

Jordan is said to have planned a natural birth but had a Caesarean after experiencing complications in her pregnancy.

Outside the hospital her fiancÚ said: "He's beautiful and healthy and he does look like me. That might disappoint some people but it makes me very happy."

Andre said he and Jordan were "a bit scared" because the baby was not due for another three to four weeks, but overnight complications prompted the decision to have a Caesarean birth on Monday morning.

Asked how Jordan was doing, the Australian pop star replied: "She's great, a really brave girl."

He added: "I'm a bit nervous and very proud and we are the happiest people in the world, I swear to God.

"I was more emotional than she was at the birth."

He said they had not decided on a name but were considering a few ideas.

The new baby is a little brother for Harvey, the model's son by footballer Dwight Yorke.
