Love/Hate star Laurence Kinlan and his wife Charlene welcomed a baby boy named Ollie into the world today.
The 31-year-old actor, who plays Elmo on the popular RTÉ crime drama, already has a six and a half year old son called Oren.
Taking to his Twitter page, the proud father said that the mum and the newborn are "doing great," writing: "My baby son Ollie was born at 9:47am this morning. Mammy & Baby are doing great. Daddy is ?? and can't wait to leave set to see him."
Kinlan later posted an adorable snap of the little bundle of joy, writing: "I was allowed leave set to see my beautiful son Ollie for a half hour. Cried leaving him :( Back to filming now."
Laurence's Love/Hate co-star Peter Coonan is also expecting to welcome a child with Kim O’Driscoll in the summer.
