Ireland rugby star Jonathan Sexton has become a dad for the second time after his wife Laura (30) gave birth to a baby daughter.
The Ireland and Leinster out-half (30) may have been left frustrated at the draw against Wales at the weekend, however he told friends he's "very happy" after the birth of his second child.
Sexton and his wife Laura have named their baby daughter Amy Jessica Sexton.
She was 6lbs 8oz and was born at Holles Street.
A close source said: "She's absolutely perfect. Both mum and baby are doing great."
She will now be a little sister to the couple's 19-month-old son, Luca.
Ireland kicking coach Richie Murphy broke the news of Sexton's baby joy at a press conference.
Murphy indicated that, despite recent injury concerns, Sexton was fighting fit and "very happy" with his new baby girl.
True to form, after visiting his new baby in a Dublin maternity hospital, Sexton was straight back to the Ireland training camp.
