DANIEL O’Donnell and his wife Majella have shared a family snap of Majella’s first grandchild.

Her daughter Siobhan gave birth during the week to a baby girl, Olivia.

New mum Siobhan is pictured her with her husband Gavin Shields, baby Olivia and Daniel and Majella.

“Delighted to announce that my daughter Siobhan has just given birth to a beautiful baby girl,” Majella wrote on Twitter earlier this week. “Welcome to the world Olivia Shields. All well.”

On behalf of herself and Daniel, Majella added: “We’re so looking forward to being grandparents.” She added: “I’ve a room done up for when they visit. We’re so excited, we can’t wait.”

Majella subsequently tweeted a tribute to Cilla Black: “So happy to have my new granddaughter but shocked to hear of Cilla’s passing.

“We had some good times together. Rest in peace chuck.”

Majella recently battled breast cancer and bravely had her hair cut off on the Late Late Show to raise much needed funds for cancer charities.
