Heidi Range has welcomed her second child with husband Alex Partakis — a baby girl called Athena.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday to share the first snaps of her newborn, the former Sugababes singer, 38, revealed she welcomed her daughter on Thursday 5 August.

Heidi penned: "She’s here!!! We are delighted to introduce you to our little bundle of joy: Athena Veronica Partakis Born at 9.05pm, August 5th 2021, 6lb 1oz of pure love X."

The star also shared a collection of sweet first snaps of Athena, including one gorgeous photo of herself cuddling the newborn in her arms.

Heidi's 62.9K followers were quick to celebrate the good news as they shared their congratulations with the family after the arrival of Athena.


Gaby Roslin sweetly penned: "Huge congratulations she’s so beautiful and what a gorgeous name," followed by heart emojis.

Charlene White put: "Congratulations darling! xx" while a different follower added: "So gorgeous, congratulations x".

Heidi announced earlier this year that she and husband Alex were expecting a second child together. They already have daughter Aurelia, three.

In March, the star wiped away tears as she discovered that she was having a baby girl in a heartwarming gender reveal video.

Heidi shared a touching video of herself and her husband Alex at the time breaking the news to their daughter Aurelia that they were having another baby.

In the video, which Heidi shared on her Instagram page, the parents could be seen telling the three year old that she was going to be a big sister soon.

Heidi said to her little girl: “You keep asking Mummy and Daddy for something, don’t you? You keep asking for a real baby. You keep saying you’d like to be a big sister. Well, Mummy and Daddy have got some news, Daddy?”

The singer’s husband Alex added: “You’re going to be a big sister very soon because Mummy has got a baby in her tummy, in there.”
