Gordon D’Arcy shared the most adorable picture of his new arrival


We're delighted for rugby star Gordon D'Arcy and his wife, model Aoife Cogan, this morning, as it's been revealed they have welcomed their first child.

Gordon took to Twitter yesterday to share the news and tell followers of his joy at being a new dad.

Posting a sweet picture of his new daughter's hand grabbing his finger, the sports star and entrepreneur wrote, "My beautiful baby girl."

No name has been revealed for Gordon and Aoife's little one just yet – we can't wait to hear what they've chosen.

The couple married in 2012 in a ceremony in Co. Monaghan, and announced in January of this year that they were expecting their first child.

Aoife admitted that she was keen to keep the gender of their new arrival a surprise until the birth, saying, "There are so few surprises left in life and I love all the guessing; the old wives' tales and everyone having a theory about whether it's a boy or a girl because of the way you're carrying the baby and the shape of the bump."

Shortly before the baby's birth, Gordon publicly thanked his wife for the "gift" she was giving him, taking to the stage at the Leinster Ball to say, "You're an amazing woman, you're giving me the best gift that anyone could ever give."

Congrats to the happy parents!
