Irish goalkeeper Shay Given welcomes child with fiancée Becky


In perhaps the greatest Christmas gift they will ever receive, Irish sportstar Shay Given and his fiancée Becky Gibson have welcomed a baby daughter into the family earlier this month. 

The happy couple announced the arrival of their daughter, Grace, on Facebook. 

The pair are snapped beaming next to the Christmas tree with little Grace dressed up in a Santa suit. 

The happy couple announced their engagement earlier this year. 

Becky, who work in PR, looks healthy and happy after giving birth to grace on December 1. 

"Nothing compares to the love and energy that can be found spending time with the ones you adore," said the 29-year-old wrote on social media. 

Shay has two other children from his previous marriage. The 39-year-old goalkeeper split from his wife of twelve years in 2013.
