Westlife star Mark Feehily shared the happiest of news with his fans at the band’s sold out show in Croke Park.
Just months after announcing he’d soon become a father with his fiance Cailean O’Neill, the star revealed the gender of his baby, on Saturday night.
Addressing the crowd, the 39-year-old proudly confessed that the pair were expecting a little girl, and out hearts are well and truly melted.
Beaming from ear to ear, he joked: ‘That’s an exclusive.’
The singer then went on to talk about how excited he was ‘for her to grow up in this wonderful country.’
Punters were quick to take to Twitter following his emotional news, and congratulated the loved up couple on their baby girl.
‘I nearly cried listening to @MarkusFeehily talking about being able to live his best life in Ireland,’ one wrote as they added: ‘I’m wishing him the best of luck with his new baby girl.’
Another said: ‘Huge congratulations to @MarkusFeehily on announcing that he is expecting a baby girl! I’m sure she will be as beautiful as you and your voice are!’
While others shadowed the same feels, adding: ‘OMG MARK IS GONNA BE A DAD TO A BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL!!! CONGRATS @MarkusFeehily I’M SO HAPPY AND SO PROUD OF YOU!!’
Mark told his Instagram followers that he was expecting a baby when celebrating his birthday back in March.
Uploading a picture of himself and his beau, he thanked his fans for their birthday messages, before telling them why his day was even more special than previous years.
The star wrote: ‘Thanks for all the Birthday wishes everyone!!
‘It really makes this my most special birthday EVER to let everyone know that later this year we will become Dads for the first time.’
He continued: ‘This is the proudest moment of our lives and we are beyond excited to say it out loud! M&C.’
Mark and Cailean got engaged at the start of the year, while holidaying in The Maldives.
Sharing a picture of the ring on his finger, next to two glasses of prosecco, the Flying Without Wings hitmaker said: ‘2019 has been so amazing to me so far and it’s only getting started!’
