Una Healy has become mum to a baby girl.

The Saturdays star's boyfriend, England rugby star Ben Foden, announced the arrival of Aoife on Twitter.

"I am officially a Dad!!!!!! Una and baby are both amazing and healthy!!!! So proud of them both! #babybenuna", he wrote.

The Saturdays announced on their Twitter page: "Una's baby girl, who weighed in at 7lbs 13oz, is called Aoife Belle Foden. Aww!"

Her first name, Aoife, traditionally means "beauty" in Gaelic and her middle name is taken from Ben's mother's maiden name, which means "beautiful" in French.

Una's bandmates wrote: "Huge congrats to Una Healy and Ben Foden on the birth of their baby girl!

"Your aunties Frankie, Mollie, Roch and Ness can't wait to meet u."

Bandmate Frankie Sandford tweeted the couple her congratulations, saying: "So excited!!! Big hug... Don't forget Una on Mothers Day Sunday!

"How cool," she added. "You're mum and dad! X."

Irish star Una recently said of finding out she was having a girl: "I come from a family of girls, I went to an all-girls school and I'm in a girl band, so I guess it's fitting that I'm having a daughter."
