The odds of Brian O'Driscoll's new son, Billy, playing rugby for Ireland are 100- to 1, according to Paddy Power bookmakers.

The youngster, born this afternoon to happy parents Brian and Amy Huberman, is likely to find himself at the 'centre' of attention should he decide to make rugby a career.

The bookmakers have put young Mr O'Driscoll at a hefty 500-to-1 to captain the Lions at some stage.

However, if he takes after his father and goes to school in Blackrock, the odds of him winning a Senior Cup with the side are a low 5-to-1.
But if he decides to take after his mother and pursue acting as a career, he is 300-to-1 to win an Oscar.

"We've seen plenty of sons follow their fathers into a sports career," said Paddy Power of Paddy Power bookmakers. "And if Billy O'Driscoll takes up rugby there's a fair chance, he will inherit some of his father's talent."

Paddy Power said that the bookmakers are expecting some interest in the bets. "There's always interest in these types of bets. People will be putting a few quid on a long term bet and seeing if it comes in."
