Mark Owen’s wife gives birth to third child

Singer welcomes new daughter with another unusual baby name

Congratulations Mark from TB HQ!

Mark Owen and his wife Emma Ferguson have announced the birth of their third child.

The arrival of their baby daughter Fox India was revealed on Take That’s official Twitter page.

The singer-songwriter and his wife, who are already parents to 6-year-old Elwood Jack and 4-year-old Willow Rose, announced Emma’s pregnancy in April when she was already 6 months pregnant. 

“Mark, Emma, Elwood and Willow are delighted to announce the arrival to the clan of their beautiful new baby girl Fox India Owen...” the announcement read.

“She was born yesterday at 7.45am weighing 7lb 1oz. They would like to thank all their friends and family for all the wonderful messages xxx”

Mark and Emma seem to be fans of unusual baby names particularly the woody, wildlife variety, and it’s got us wondering how they chose the name Fox India.

Perhaps Mark and Emma (and their kids) are fans of author Roald Dahl, and their daughter will be nicknamed “fantastic baby Fox”. The name India is proving to be a popular choice among celebs this year, as new dad and Avengers Assemble hunk Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky welcomed daughter India Rose in May.

Mark isn’t the only member of Take That to be adding to his brood this year. Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda Field are expecting their first child this summer, and Gary Barlow’s wife Dawn is expecting their fourth child.

So, Fox India is just the beginning of the Take That baby boom!
