New mum June Shannon has taken to Twitter to share photos of her new daughter, Clodagh Alice Curtis, born yesterday at 12:15pm, weighing 6lb, 10oz.

The Irish health and medical journalist was in a joyous mood as she shared the good news with her followers.

Over the last few years, June has written numerous articles in which she discussed that she was affected by unexplained infertility, and shared how challenging it was for her and her 'lovely husband'.

“I have learned to perfect my “how wonderful face” when women I know tell me they are expecting their second, third and fourth babies” she said in 2014.

It seems that the new bundle of joy is a little miracle in every sense of the word with her proud Mum tweeting :

'6 years of heartache, 5 IVF cycles, 1 miscarriage, €21,000...Practice makes perfect, baby Clodagh worth the wait ;)'
