Camilla Kerslake welcomes baby boy with rugby star husband Chris Robshaw

CLASSICAL singer Camilla Kerslake and her rugby star husband Chris Robshaw have welcomed their first baby.

Camilla, 32, took to Instagram to share a sweet snap alongside the news she had given birth to a baby boy with former England captain Chris, 34.

The sweet post, which was shared by both of the proud new parents, saw their hands forming a heart shape around their sons tiny feet.

Alongside the black and white photograph, Camilla told her fans: "Welcome to the world little man. We are so, so in love with you."

Meanwhile, Chris wrote that he was "so proud" of his other half for being an "absolute warrior" in labour and delivering their son.

"So proud of @camillakerslake who was an absolute warrior throughout. We couldn’t be happier & more in love with our little one," he said.

The couple announced they were due to be first time parents in February, two years after they were married in June 2018.

Camilla and Chris, who were engaged for three years before their wedding day, revealed the baby was due in May but chose not to disclose the gender.

Speaking to Hello! magazine, the pair said they had started trying for a baby as their job commitments slowed down during the pandemic.

She told the publication that the UK lockdown was the reason they "decided to get pregnant" in order to be "productive" as work dried up.

The former rugby captain said soprano Camilla would be "a fantastic mum" and praised his wife for being "good with kids".

"Chris is going to be a great dad," the singer gushed back. "He's always on the go. He always wants to be running around."

Relocating to America this year, the couple settled in Las Vegas as Chris signed for Major League Rugby side San Diego Legion.

The move to Sin City came after Chris' new team temporarily set up camp there due to a high number of coronavirus cases in southern California.

Speaking on the location of their baby's birth, Chris said: "I think it'll be cool that the baby's birth certificate will say: 'Born in Las Vegas'."

Not dissimilar to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are raising son Archie abroad after quitting their roles as senior royals, the couple plan to remain in the US.

Chris admitted he took inspiration from Prince Harry, who is a patron of the Rugby Football Union and often pays visits to the teams.

"Harry is a great guy, he's always been very supportive," Chris said of his time with former team Harlequins. "When he last visited, I gave him a rugby top for Archie."

The sports star said he would "invite Harry and his family over to visit" when they move to San Diego, where they plan to settle.

Camilla and Chris, who were engaged for three years, tied the knot in an intimate family ceremony held in Provence, France in 2018.

Their love story began in 2011, when sparks flew between the duo after meeting at a rugby event where Camilla was singing.

"My manager who was with me said I shouldn't give [my number] to him," Camilla previously confessed to The Mail On Sunday. "But I said, 'Of course I will. Just look at him. He's gorgeous'."

In September of last year, the pair announced their had started up an OnlyFans account to keep themselves busy during lockdown.

Camilla provided music content while Chris focused on fitness, ensuring everything was "exclusive" to their paying punters.

"I'm thrilled to have a platform where I can share everything I've learnt over the years and give exclusive content to anyone looking to get in shape," Chris said.

Camilla agreed: "Music and singing have been my passion ever since I can remember. I'm excited to use this platform to give exclusive access to my latest work and help anyone looking for support and inspiration."
