Celebrity bump and baby news

The Queen is "delighted" with the birth of her first great-grandchild - a baby girl.

Buckingham Palace announced that the wife of the Queen's grandson Peter Phillips gave birth to a daughter yesterday.

Autumn and Peter Phillips' first child, whose name has yet to be confirmed, weighed 8lbs 8oz when she was born at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.

A statement from Buckingham Palace read: "The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Princess Royal, Captain Mark Phillips and Autumn's family have been informed and are delighted with the news."

We all wonder what sort of baby mattress will have been ordered for this new royal arrival - maybe it was one of our top of the range "Royal Standard" mattresses.

All of our baby mattresses are fit for royalty to sleep on.

Yet another new arrival:

Friends of Sir Elton John have congratulated him after he became a father to a baby boy born on Christmas Day.

Actress Elizabeth Hurley was among the first to offer her best wishes to the singer and his civil partner David Furnish, whose son Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John was born in California to a surrogate.

Writing on Twitter, she said: "Massive congratulations to David and Elton on having their beautiful son. Can't wait for my first cuddle."

Zachary, who weighed 7lb 15oz, is Sir Elton's first child with Furnish. The couple's civil partnership was formalised in 2005.

The news that they had become parents was first reported by and confirmed by Sir Elton's Los Angeles-based publicist.

In a joint statement, the couple told the magazine that "Zachary is healthy and doing well" and declared themselves "overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment".

The identity of their son's surrogate mother is being protected by the new parents.

Elton & David's new baby is staying in Los Angeles at the moment. It is said that they have splashed out on a hoard of luxury items for their newborn surrogate son, including a £200 designer cradle that connects to an iPod. Whatever size of mattress the crib may need, we can certainly make one.
