Howard Donald names his new baby after David Bowie

Howard Donald has named his new baby son after the late David Bowie.

The Take That singer and wife Katie Halil welcomed their first child into the world on Tuesday, January 12, 2016, and the new arrival has been given the first name Bowie in honour of the late singer, who died of cancer on January 10. 

Announcing his happy news, Howard tweeted: "Bowie Taylan Donald came into this world on Tues 12th Jan.  Mummy and daddy suffering sleep deprivation but life is wonderful, he is divine."

Earlier in the week, the 47-year-old singer - who also has two daughters, Grace, 16, and Lola, 10, from past relationships - paid tribute to "genius" singer David and recalled the time he and former bandmate Jason Orange met the 'Moonage Daydream' hitmaker.

He tweeted: "Feel very honoured that I have a photo of me and jay with David Bowie. When we did TOTP. What a genius and a great loss. RIP."

Howard and Katie were married in January 2015 in a secret two-day wedding.

The couple met while Take That were filming Marks & Spencer Christmas TV advert in 2008, but only started dating in 2010.
