After a series of impatient tweets (the littl'un was one week overdue), Alan finally shared the good news on Saturday.
Lucy-Jo & I are delighted to announce the arrival of our little girl born this morning. Mother & baby are home with a very proud Father— Alan Halsall (@alanhalsall) September 7, 2013
The little girl remained unnamed until yesterday, when new mum Lucy-Jo tweeted that they decided to name her Sienna-Rae Halsall.
Our baby girl arrived fashionably late on the 7th September. We are proud parents to Sienna-Rae Halsall she is a dream xxx xxx— Lucy-Jo Hudson (@LucyJo_Hudson) September 9, 2013
Lucy-Jo previously said about her husband, "He'll definitely cry at the birth . It's like he's tapped into an emotion he didn't have before. He sits next to me and puts his head on my bump."
We can definitely see the affects of fatherhood on Alan – he's barely stopped gushing about their new arrival since her arrival. Bless.
Please forgive @LucyJo_Hudson & I we would love to thank everybody individually, but we can't stop looking at our little beauty Sienna-Rae x— Alan Halsall (@alanhalsall) September 9, 2013
The couple, who married in 2009 after meeting on the set of Coronation Street in 2002, announced the sex of the baby back in April.
We're sure it won't be long before we get some tweeted pics of Sienna-Rae. What do you think of the name?
