Westlife's Bryan McFadden and his wife Kerry Katona have announced the birth of their second child, Lilly Sue.

The 7lb 7oz baby was born in Dublin's Mount Carmel Private Hospital last night.

According to a spokesman, "mother and child are extremely happy and healthy".

Kerry, who used to be in pop group Atomic Kitten, gave birth to the celebrity couple's first child 17 months ago.

Bryan said: "I'm absolutely over the moon. I feel delighted, it's another step closer to becoming the big family."

His bandmate Shane Filan is to be Lilly's godfather.
