British singer-turned-reality TV star KERRY KATONA has given birth to a baby boy.

The former Atomic Kitten star and husband Mark Croft celebrated the birth of Maxwell at Macclesfield General Hospital, Cheshire, England on Friday.

The tot - born five weeks early and weighing just five pounds four ounces - has been named after Katona's spokesman and PR guru Max Clifford.

 Katona, 27, who had been publicly criticised for her continued smoking throughout her pregnancy, said, "He's absolutely fine, he's beautiful."

 The couple already have a one-year-old daughter Heidi and Katona has two older children- Molly, six, and Lilly-Sue, five - from her marriage to Westlife singer Brian McFadden.
