Simon Zebo and his fiancée Elvira Fernandez have welcomed their fourth child together.

The Irish rugby star took to Instagram on Friday to announce the arrival of baby Isabella by sharing a photo of him and his wife-to-be in hospital with their newborn.

He captioned the photo: “Isabella Kate Fernandez Zebo 21/4/22”

A host of famous faces flocked to the comments section to congratulate the couple, with Love Island winner and Olympian Greg O’Shea writing: “Big congrats!”

Former South African rugby player Brad Barritt said: “Congrats Zebo fam.”

And Northern Irish boxer Jamie Conlan added: “Congratulations Zeeb’s, amazing news."

Simon and Elvira are also parents to Jacob (6), Sofia (5), and Noah (2).

The couple got engaged in Paris back in 2019, just four weeks after their third child Noah was born.

Sharing their engagement photo, Simon said: “My childhood sweetheart said yes.

“From the bushes in Blackrock as 15/16 year olds to the bright lights of Paris as parents of three beautiful children.

“Love you forever Eva, my queen.”

The pair are set to wed in an intimate ceremony at the 5-star Aghadoe Heights Hotel just outside Killarney, Co. Kerry this summer.

None of Simon’s Ireland and Munster rugby teammates will be in attendance.

“It will be a very small and intimate celebration this summer, it will just be our close family,” Elvira told RSVP Magazine last month.

“We want to make things official this summer and hopefully the world will be more normal next year, because I want to have a church wedding and a big party with everyone in Spain next year.

“My parents, my sisters and my brother will come over to Killarney, just my close family.

“We wanted to do something more special than just going to the registry office and signing a piece of paper.”
