The TV presenter shared the news to Instagram on Sunday.

Síle Seoige has announced the birth of her daughter, who she has named Clíodhna.

Taking to Instagram, the TV star posted a black and white photo of the newborn baby girl.

“There is so much I want to say but I don’t know where to start!” she wrote. “So simply put..  Clíodhna, our baby daughter arrived into the world on Thursday the 11th of November in a bit of a hurry but I still (luckily) had the birth I had hoped for with Damien by my side every step of the way.

“We’re so thankful for an incredible birth team in @thecoombehospital our wonderful consultant Professor Deirdre Murphy and midwives Rachel and Dara for believing in me and empowering me to have the birth experience I was hoping for. Shout out to perineum massage too for a quick recovery post birth.

“We arrived home yesterday and Cathal has taken to the role of big brother brilliantly. Trying to soak up every euphoric and exhausting second while we can and feeling beyond thankful that she’s here.”

The new arrival is Síle’s second child with fiancé Damien O’ Farrell, with whom she welcomed her son Cathal into the world back in 2017.

Síle had previously shared a photograph to her Instagram story telling fans she would update them as soon as possible:

“Major baby bubble vibes going on here. I will do a proper post over the coming days but all is great. Shattered but euphoric! Thanks for the love.”

Friends and fans flooded the comment section with congratulations for the new mum.

“Oh she is so adorable. Congratulations!! Enjoy every moment,” one person wrote.

“Oh what a little baby cherub.Welcome to the world Clíodhna you gorgeous angel and well done mama,” another said.
