Kevin Kilbane and his wife, Brianne Delcourt, have welcomed their second child together, a baby girl, into the world. 

The former Republic of Ireland footballer and his professional ice skating wife shared their happy news on social media on Friday.

“Our beautiful baby girl Born 8.37am ET,” they posted.

“We can't wait to take you home to meet your sisters…."

The Canada-based couple, who met when they were partnered on ITV's Dancing on Ice in late 2019, announced last November that they were expecting their second child together.

The news came nine months after they welcomed their first child together, daughter Olivia Mai, in February 2021.

Kilbane also has two daughters, teenagers Elsie and Isla, from his previous marriage while Delcourt has a five-year-old daughter, Gracie, from a previous relationship.

After a whirlwind romance, they had planned to celebrate with a big wedding in Ireland in April 2020, surrounded by family and friends.

However, due to Covid-19 restrictions they were forced to have a smaller and more intimate ceremony in Delcourt's native Canada in September 2020.

The pair shared a snap of their little bundle of joy with Brianne cradling their beautiful baby girl in hospital, with the little one wearing a cute pink hat as her mum plants a kiss on her head.

Brianne opted for a C-section with this birth after it was decided that would be the safest option for the professional skater.

After meeting in October 2019, Kevin and Brianne went on to get engaged in February 2020 when the former footballer, 45, got down on one knee at STK restaurant in London.

They then tied the knot in September of that year when they also revealed the exciting news that Brianne was five months pregnant with their daughter Olivia, who they welcomed in February 2021.
