#Player2 has arrived: Tom and Giovanna Fletcher welcome second baby boy!

Great news for Fletcher fans – Giovanna and Tom have proudly welcomed their second baby boy to the world this week.

Giovanna gave birth to Buddy Bob Fletcher on Tuesday and announced the news on her Instagram account with this snap of a bright blue sky:

Her husband Tom couldn’t wait to get the word out, being the first to announce the news on his Twitter account with two separate tweets, saying: 'Player 2 has entered the game... Completely overwhelmed with love for our second son Buddy, and can't wait for him to meet his big brother. Thanks for the lovely messages. X.'

The couple were quick to receive congratulatory messages across social media with fans, friends and family alike chiming in.

Tom's mum Debbie tweeted: 'What a day for the Fletcher family... Massive congratulations to @tommcfly and @MrsGiFletcher and thank you for my new grandchild x.', while Tom's McFly bandmate Harry Judd wrote: 'Congratulations @tommcfly & @MrsGiFletcher on the safe arrival of Buddy Bob Fletcher! Lola can't wait to meet him! Buzzy and Buzz (sic)'.

Buddy has become the fourth member of the little family, joining his older brother Buzz who was born in March 2014. Buzz is already taking his big brother duties in his stride, as shown in this cute snap posted by Tom earlier today:


First morning home with our boys.

Although they haven't actually spoken out about the birth yet, a lot can be guessed from Giovanna's interviews and vlogs on her YouTube channel. It's no secret that the couple were planning a hypnobirth involving natural breathing techniques to create a calm atmsophere, had put together a mix-tape to listen to and were even planning on bringing the placenta home.
