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.”
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.
