“We've just been loving every second of our new life as a family and trying to taking it all in.

“There will never ever be any words to adequately thank the incredible staff in Holles Street hospital,” the new dad continued.

“I'm not sure if any of them will ever see this, but if they do, all I can say is thank you for bringing our little boy safely in to the world - you were by our side for a few hours but some day we’ll tell Daibhí about the incredible women who helped bring him to us safely.”

Finally, Carl paid tribute to his “beautiful” fiancée Aisling.
