Proud granddaughter Daniel O'Donnell has posted a photo of his new granddaughter Olivia Margaret Lynda Shields.

The smitten singer posted the photo on his Facebook page yesterday.

Majella's daughter Siobhan gave birth to the bundle of joy on Sunday at 5.44pm.

"Mum, dad and baby doing well," Majella told her Facebook fans.

"So delighted and blessed to have her. Welcome to the world Olivia Shields."

Speaking recently of her and husband Daniel's excitement at the impending arrival, Majella said: "We're so looking forward to being grandparents.

"I've a room done up for when they visit. We're so excited, we can't wait," she said.

Majella's 27-year-old daughter is engaged to long-term partner Gavin Shields, who proposed to her last Christmas.

Majella previously admitted she was keeping the month of August free so she could spend quality time with her daughter and granddaughter.
