She enjoyed a remarkably low-key pregnancy – and Claudine Keane has now given birth to her and her husband’s second child.
Congratulations to the entire family!
An announcement on Robbie’s Facebook page confirmed that the little one had arrived safe and sound.
“Robbie and Claudine Keane are delighted to announce the birth of their gorgeous baby boy,” the post read.
The statement added that their son “was born at 7pm on the 5th of October weighing 8lbs at the Cedars Sinai hospital LA.
“Mum and baby are doing great. Robert is already enjoying his new role as big brother.”
The couple’s elder son is now six-and-a-half and attends school in Los Angeles, where the Keane family has lived since Robbie signed with LA Galaxy in 2011.
Robbie, 35, and Claudine, 32, both hail from Dublin and married there in the summer of 2008.
They were spotted on the red-carpet at the ESPYs in July – a few weeks before she confirmed she was expecting.
“It’s a good lifestyle,” Ms Keane has previously said of living in California.
“It’s very relaxed for the family. Lots to do outdoors, especially with my son. He likes going to the beach.”
