ROCK-A-BILLY star Imelda May, is now the proud mother of a baby girl, she revealed last night.
Earlier this year, the Liberties belle announced she was expecting her first child with guitarist husband Darrel Higham.
Yesterday afternoon, the 38-year-old informed fans via her Twitter page she had given birth to a daughter.
"Darrel and I are pleased to announce the arrival of Violet Kathleen Higham -- our beautiful baby daughter, born August 23 2012," she wrote.
The singer, who hails from the heart of Dublin's Liberties, kept up her touring schedule until late in her pregnancy and performed at an outdoor festival in late June.
She was a major hit during 'The Late Late Show' 50th anniversary celebrat-ions earlier in the summer where she showed off her baby bump in a green dress.
