Aston Merrygold and Sarah Richards welcome baby boy

Congratulations to former JLS star Aston Merrygold and his fiancée Sarah Richards, who have welcomed their first child into the world.

Whilst the baby was a few days overdue, Sarah finally gave birth to a boy, Grayson Jax Merrygold, yesterday. News of the birth started to surface online last night after a family member revealed a baby picture. However, Aston took to Instagram this morning to confirm the news himself.

Sharing a picture of himself with his new bundle of joy, Aston captioned the picture with “Grayson Jax Merrygold 30/01/2018 @sarahlourichards life is now complete.”

The couple announced that they were expecting their first child back in September. They later got engaged around Christmas time.

Aston is the final member of JLS to become a father: Marvin Humes is a dad of two to Alaia-Mai and Valentine, JB Gill is father to Ace whilst Oritsé Williams also has a son called Omré.

2018 looks set to be a busy year for Aston. Not only has he welcomed his first child, but he will be heading out on a UK tour in April.

We wish Aston and Sarah all the best as they start the next chapter of their lives with Grayson.
