Irish soccer star Shay Given has welcomed his second child with fiancée Becky Gibson.

Baby Cassie Elsa Given was born at the family’s home in Cheshire weighing a healthy 11.5lbs. She was named after Shay and Becky’s grandmothers.

Sharing the experience and a beautiful birth photo on social media, Becky wrote: ‘The moment all my dreams came true for a magical, uninterrupted, short, calm, drug free relaxed home birth with no medical intervention. I believed in myself and my baby and afforded her the very best welcome to the world…so proud of myself and @no1shaygiven for this experience.’
