For (very) obvious reasons todays news is all dominated by the birth of Alaia-Mai Humes yesterday. Almost every media outlet you can imagine has reported the birth, I’ve not come across anything that hasn’t been reported already, although the couple probably (does anyone know) have a deal with one of the magazines for the exclusives in a few weeks. Once again we congratulate the couple on the birth of their daughter
The Doncaster Star has put up a slideshow from the event at the racecourse on Saturday, I’ll try and get a gallery update shortly, I know it’s not had updates for a while, so don’t panic its on the list
Also Swarovski have posted two videos from ‘Behind The Scenes’ of the Gentleman music video, that actual video doesn’t premiere until Thursday, so enjoy this sneak peak!
If they are all girls we will have The Saturdays Juniors! Frankie has taken to twitter to announce that she and Wayne are expecting their first child together. Huge congratulations to the newly engaged couple from everyone here at The Saturdays Fansite.
This morning our lovely girls appeared on the Radio 1 Breakfast show to premiere their new single ‘What About Us’ featuring Sean Paul. The girls also chatted about their new TV series, and Vanessa decided it would be a good time to spout out an inappropriate word live on air .. only Vanessa
I managed to record some of the live webstream of the girls (a couple of technical issues meant I missed the start) if BBC put up the entire video I will obviously replace it accordingly
UK remember you can PRE-ORDER the new single ‘What About Us’ on iTunes NOW and grab yourself a signed copy via the Universal Store
According to various radio stations online the girls are doing a ‘radio day’ in London today so I expect a raft of UK media and press updates coming soon.
In other news, Rochelle has been shopping for baby clothes – according to the DailyMail – and apparently for girls clothes. Check out some pictures below.

Rochelle Wiseman has revealed her glee at being an “auntie” – but admitted she’s not ready for motherhood yet.
The Saturdays singer, who is engaged to JLS singer Marvin Humes, can’t wait for bandmate Una Healy to give birth in March.
“I am most looking forward to Una having a baby. She’s due on my birthday!” she said.
“I really hope she pops out on my birthday, I’d be chuffed. It’s the first Saturdays baby! We can’t wait. It’s a girl. We’re all going to be aunties.”
The 22-year-old continued: “It’s got me really excited to be an auntie. Don’t get me wrong, one day I’ll have kids but I’m not ready for that yet. I’m happy with my life.
“I think Una will be a great mum. I love kids, don’t get me wrong, but just not for myself – yet,” she added.
Rochelle and her bandmates will be performing at Asda’s Tickled Pink fundraising concert alongside Alexandra Burke, Little Mix, Chipmunk and Dionne Bromfield, which takes place at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire tonight (January 12).
“Alexandra asked us to perform. She texted me and was like, ‘I’m doing a gig for Tickled Pink, I’m really excited about it and I really want you girls to be involved’,” the singer revealed.
“It’s a great cause. We’re excited to be there and it’s amazing because 100% of the ticket sales go to Tickled Pink and that usually doesn’t happen. So everyone’s there for a good reason.”

And it seems that her bandmates could be in for some competition.
She’s having a little girl.
The Saturdays singer found out the gender of her little one at a 20-week scan and has announced the news to Hello! magazine.
She said: “I come from a family of girls, I went to an all-girls school and I’m in a girl band, so I guess it’s fitting that I’m having a daughter.”
The Saturdays’ All Fired Up tour starts next month and, although Una admitted that she will be swapping her heels for flats after a scary fall recently, she can’t wait to get going.
She said: “I’ve been quite surprised that people have said, ‘How will you do this tour?’ Naturally I’ll be careful and I’d never do anything that would put our baby at risk. But I’m pregnant, not ill.”
She added: “Loads of women continue to work through their pregnancies and this is my job, so why wouldn’t I carry on doing what I love – especially when I feel so well.”
Her super-hot rugby player boyfriend also said in the interview that although the baby wasn’t planned, they’re both chuffed to bits.
He said: “We weren’t trying for a baby.
“But we’d talked about starting a family and we’re in a loving and committed relationship, so it wasn’t a massive shock. I was over the moon. I plan on spending the rest of my life with Una.”
The full Interview is available in Hello magazine, which is out in shops today!

Update: Una has confirmed this news via Twitter
Yes the news is true! @ben_foden and I are expecting a baby BenUna! We are both very excited xx
Everyone here at The Saturdays Fansite sends their congratulations to @unahealy and Ben Foden on the announcement that Una and Ben are expecting their first child, the news was broken by the Daily Mirror last night and has been picked up by the media throughout the night.
The “delighted” 29-year-old rushed home on Wednesday night to break the happy news to her mammy and daddy in County Tipperary (it’s a long way, but she had to do it).
The Irish beauty says: “I’m really happy! It was totally unexpected, but me and Ben are really excited.”
Ben is currently on the other side of the world, touring New Zealand with the England rugby team for the World Cup.
He celebrated the announcement with team-mates including Mike Tindall and Jonny Wilkinson at their hotel in Queenstown.
As for Una’s bandmates, they are made up.
The girls said last night: “We’re so excited for Una! We can’t wait to have a sixth Saturday.
“Ben and Una are going to be fab parents!”
The singer will reach the three-month mark next week, and has undergone regular hospital check-ups to ensure the baby is healthy – although she doesn’t yet know the sex.
Una has shelved plans to celebrate her 30th birthday with Ben in New Zealand next month, as she’s worried about the effect the long-haul flight might have on her and the little ‘un.
The couple have been dating since November 2008 and Ben, 26, revealed in March that he planned to pop the question over the coming months.
He said: “We’ve been discussing marriage for some time. It will happen and I want lots of children.” A friend said: “All the girls are absolutely overjoyed for Una – they can’t wait to meet the first Saturday baby!
“He or she is going to have four very excited aunties when they arrive in late March.
“All of Una’s family are really supportive, too. She was overwhelmed by the response when she went home.
“Ben’s delighted. He’s looking forward to celebrating fully with Una when the World Cup is over.”
Una returns to the UK to perform with the band on Friday.
A pal says she will continue with their schedule as planned, “right up until she’s fit to burst”.
The Saturdays will be promoting their forthcoming album and completing their All Fired Up tour, which kicks off in December.
Although Una’s skimpy outfits might have to be let out a little….
