The tot’s name has been confirmed as Felicity Rose – lovely, right?

Cracking a typically terrible Take Me Out-style one-liner, Paddy wrote on Twitter: “Welcome Felicity! The boys are officially outnumbered in our house. Let the maternity see the leave!”

“Thank you to all the Dr’s, nurses, wonderful maternity staff and the amazing team in NICU at St Marys hospital who helped our baby girl. (sic)”

Earlier this year, Christine opened up about the moment she discovered she was pregnant a second time: “I went downstairs and just said to Paddy: ‘I’m f***ing pregnant, we’re having another baby in September!'”

The couple spent three years attempting to get pregnant first time around. The twins arrived in 2013, two years after the down-to-earth couple wed.

Last month Christine flashed her very neat baby bump on Instagram, adding: “I can’t wait to meet my new baba but I don’t want to leave my twins when I go into hospital. I have never spent a night away from them since they were born 3 years ago.

“I know it will be worth it when I bring baby home and our family is all together.”

Aww, congratulations to the McGuinness clan!
