Westlife singer Shane Filan and wife Gillian Walsh have welcomed their third child. Son Shane Peter was born on Friday, January 22nd in Sligo General Hospital at 9:30pm and weighed 6lbs 9oz. A friend of the couple said of the news:
Shane and Gillian are over the moon with their new arrival. They’re thrilled it’s a boy and have decided to call him after his dad, which Shane is chuffed about.
Both mom and baby are both doing great, although it was a last-minute dash to get to the hospital. The labour only took an hour-and-a-half so it was a close call but their doctor, Dr Heather Langan was great. She made sure everything ran smoothly and mom and baby were well looked after.”
Baby Shane joins sister Nicole Rose, 4, and brother Patrick Michael, 16 months.
