Crystal Swing singer Dervla Burke welcomes first child with husband Tim
Crystal Swing singer Dervla Burke has welcomed her first child with her husband Tim O'Connor.
The 24-year-old gave birth at 2:30am on Thursday morning at Cork University Hospital, her mother Mary Burke told Independent.ie.
"They are absolutely thrilled to welcome the little baby," said Mary.
The newborn was named Paul, as a "special" tribute to Mary's late brother, and weighed in at 7lbs 9oz.
"The baby is healthy and strong, he's a quiet little fella. Everything went well with the delivery and birth thank God."
Mary said that the new mother is "doing very well" and is "exhausted after the birth."
"She's staying the hospital until Sunday. She's totally exhausted and drained, but absolutely delighted."
Baby Paul is the first grandchild in the family, who rose to national fame in 2010 with country music band Crystal Swing.
Cork native Dervla and her husband Tim tied the knot in a country-themed wedding in August 2015, which was later broadcast on RTE.
