Former Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Shay Given and his fiancée Becky Gibson are over the moon with their new baby girl.

The soccer legend announced the birth of his new baby on Instagram with a sweet snap of the little girl’s tiny foot in his hand yesterday afternoon.

The proud dad added a caption saying: “Feeling blessed, welcome to the world Cassie Elsa Given. Very proud of Becky."

PR executive Becky, aged 30, also took to Instagram sharing a photo of herself looking calm and content in a birthing pool holding her precious newborn daughter.

And although baby Cassie weighed a healthy 11.5 pounds at birth, Becky explained her labour was very short, just an hour and a half long!

Becky wrote underneath the photo: “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.”

She went on to explain why they had picked the name Cassie Elsa; the couple wanted to use both of their grandmothers’ names for their little one – what a lovely tribute.

Becky and Shay are already proud parents to a little girl named Grace who was born December 2015 and Shay is also a dad to two older children, Shay Junior, ten and Sienna, seven, with his ex-wife Jane.

What a beautiful little girl, congrats to the couple.

Last night, Shay Given announced that he is retiring from international football.

The 40-year-old goalkeeper took to Twitter to thank his fans and team-mates for all of their undying support over the years.

He wrote: “I’m one of the lucky ones who got to wear the jersey for his country and wore the badge with pride 134 times.

"But now it's time to hang up the gloves and move from the onion bag to the terraces, where I'll be shouting the lads on as one of Ireland's biggest fans."

He finished with: "Couldn't have done it without you."

With a very emotional goodbye, his fans flocked to Twitter to wish him the best:

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.

Irish goalkeeper Shay Given has announced that he will become a dad again.

His agent confirmed the news that his girlfriend Becky Gibson is pregnant. Speaking to the Irish Sun Mark Devlin said:

"Shay and Becky are extremely happy together and are very excited to welcome their new arrival into the world.”

The pair are clearly over the moon as Mark continued to add that:

“From my point of view, I’ve never seen Shay as happy as this and I wish them all the happiness in the world.”

The duo first met in 2013 and since then they seem to have gone from strength to strength. Becky, from Donegal originally, had previously mentioned that Shay was “the most important thing of all” for her.

When the news came that the pair were officially an item, Becky faced plenty of backlash from people online, after Shay’s marriage broke down.

Shay and his now estranged wife Jane Cunningham met in 1990 in Glasgow when he played for Newcastle United. They wed in 2001 and were divorced in June of last year.

They had two children together Shayne, 9, and Sienna who is six years old.

Shay is not the only Irish sports star with baby news of late. In recent weeks Robbie Keane took to Facebook to reveal that he and his wife Claudine are expecting their second child.
