Another Westlife baby is born!
Kian Egan and wife Jodi Albert have welcomed another baby Westlife into the world!
Kian tweeted last night: “Our Little baby Boy "Koa" was born today at 6.10pm. @JodiAlbert_xxx is an amazing woman. Love them both so much. Both doing amazing, so proud x”
Ex-Hollyoaks actress Jodi and Westlife’s Kian received the ultimate Christmas present as Jodi went into labour with baby Koa two weeks early.
28-year-old Jodi, who played Debbie Dean in Hollyoaks and briefly sang with girl group Wonderland, looked fit to burst in recent photos.
Kian, 31, reportedly had a private jet waiting for him after last weekend’s X Factor final to head to Sligo, Ireland in case wife Jodi went into labour.
Speaking on the Late Late Show, Kian said: “I honestly can’t wait for Jodi to give birth. I want to do everything – nappies, feeds, whatever Jodi needs.”
Kian and Jodi married in Barbados in 2009 and chose the baby name ‘Koa’ because it means ‘brave and fearless’ in Hawaiian.
Congratulations to both of them!
