Jamie and Sheena Heaslip have welcomed their first child together.

The pair first announced that they were going to become parents last year, saying that it was an “exciting time” for them.

The Irish rugby player announced this afternoon that Sheena had given birth to a daughter.

The couple have named their baby Harper.

Writing on Instagram today, Jamie thanked the midwives, nurses, and doctors who helped deliver their daughter at the National Maternity Hospital.

He said:

“Our beautiful daughter Harper Heaslip born today.

“So much thanks to the all the help from the mid wife Jenny, nurses, our doctor, Dr Allen, and everyone in Holles street. And to my wife, simply speechless.”

Jamie and Sheena married back in August 2016 after being together for six years.

The sports star marked the couple’s one-year anniversary on Instagram last August with some never-before-seen pictures from the big day, saying: “How time flies when you’re having fun. One year on and going strong. Happy Anniversary, Sheena!”


Jamie’s post has already received over 8,000 likes in the hour since it was shared.
