RUGBY star Ronan O'Gara and his wife, Jessica, are celebrating the birth of their fifth child in a Paris hospital.

The former Ireland and Munster star, who is now coaching with Racing Metro in France, was by his wife's side as she gave birth to their newest son.

Little Max was born last Sunday night in a Paris maternity hospital. Both baby and mother are said to be doing very well and are expected to return home within 24 hours.

Max is the O'Garas' fifth child and has already been introduced to his siblings, twins Rua and Molly (5), JJ (4) and Zac (1).

Max's grandfather, Cork auctioneer Dominic Daly, said they were "delighted" with the news and excited about meeting their new grandson.

The couple were swamped by messages of congratulations.
