Donegal soccer star Shay Given and his wife Becky Gibson have celebrated the birth of their second child - Cassie Elsa Given.
The baby girl was born yesterday morning at 8.16am. Becky gave birth to the 11.5lb baby at home after just 90 minutes of labour.
PR executive Becky, 30, shared an insight into the birth with her Instagram followers, saying the hypnobirth was ‘absolute perfection’.
“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,” Becky said.
Little Cassie Elsa’s name carries a poignant meaning as she was named after both Shay and Becky’s grandmothers.
Shay, 41, from Lifford, shared a beautiful photo of little Cassie Elsa’s foot in his hand, expressing his admiration for Becky when he wrote:
Feeling blessed, welcome to the world Cassie Elsa Given. Very proud of @missbkygibson ❤️
The couple welcomed daughter Gracie into the world in December 2015. The Irish footballer from Lifford has two children, Shayne and Sienna, from a previous relationship with ex-wife Jane.
