Mark Feehily is officially a dad! The 39 year-old singer announced on Tuesday via his Instagram account the arrival of his baby girl, Layla.
The picture showed Mark and fiancé Cailean O’Neal holding on to the trolley with their index finger up high, with their baby daughter snuggled up in blankets between them. In the picture he wrote “Baby Layla born safe & sound @ 7.27pm on October 1st 2019! We’re the happiest Dads in the world!”.
The news was meet with plenty of praises and congratulation from fans and friends alike, with Jodi Albert – a partner of fellow Westlife member, and Delta Goodream – Westlife member Brian McFadden’s ex – joining in as well.
The baby was hardly a surprise as the singer have make known that the couple were already expecting a baby with an Instagram post earlier this year. In the post, the Westlife belter thanked his fans for their birthday wishes and followed it up with the intention.
“Thanks for all the Birthday wishes everyone!! It really makes this my most special birthday EVER to let everyone know that later this year we will become Dads for the first time. This is the proudest moment of our lives and we are beyond excited to say it out loud!” he captioned.
Mark proposed to Cailean back in February this year during a holiday in Maldives, although fans at the time, were not quite sure who the mystery man was.
It was later revealed that the couple have been dating for 6 years since 2013. In 2017 Mark told RSVP Live, “I am going out with an Irish guy now, so it suits us both to be back in Ireland and our families are closeby. We are together four years now, so it has been quite a while and I am very happy.” So it would be safe to assume they will be raising their daughter there as well.
Recently, Mark have been back on road with Westlife’s 20th anniversary reunion tour with fellow members Shane Filan, Kian Egan and Nicky Byrne, as they are also set to release their 11th album titled “Spectrum” this November.
