The Cavan-based chef announced the arrival of his newborn son Connor and daughter Lucia on Twitter, joking that hopefully they might turn out to be "a butcher and a baker".

Amelda gave birth yesterday morning in Sligo General Hospital and was understood to be in good health last night.

Welcoming the prospect of two new mouths to feed, the kitchen maestro said the couple were absolutely thrilled.

"Wow, what a wonderful day," he tweeted. "Amelda just gave birth to a boy and a girl. We are thrilled. Our little angels!!! Thank god!

"Hopefully, a butcher and a baker. Don't tell Amelda."

The new arrivals are the first children for the couple, who are behind the acclaimed MacNean House and Restaurant in Blacklion, Co Cavan.
