Texas singer has baby girl
Sharleen Spiteri:
Spiteri named the girl Misty Kyd Heath
Sharleen Spiteri, lead singer with pop band Texas, has given birth to a baby girl.

The child, named Misty Kyd Heath, was born at 2328 BST on Monday at the St John and Elizabeth Hospital in St John's Wood, London.

The baby weighed in at 8lbs 7oz.

A spokesman for the Glasgow-born singer said "she's really happy and well" though he could not explain where the name had come from.

Texas will record a new album next summer
The band is enjoying a two-year break

A statement issued on the chart star's behalf said: "Both mother and baby are doing well."

Texas announced last year that the band intended to take a two-year break from touring.

At the time Spiteri revealed her desire to start a family with partner and magazine executive Ashley Heath.

Spiteri worked as a hairdresser before finding success with the band in 1986.

The band has enjoyed three UK number one albums and hits including I Don't Want A Lover, Say What You Want, Black Eyed Boy and Inner Smile.

The Spiteri name comes little over a week after Victoria and David Beckham called their second baby Romeo.
