SINGER Andrea Corr has been left overjoyed after giving birth to her second child.

The Corrs frontwoman named the bouncing boy, her first son, after husband Brett Desmond.

The singer gave birth to her son in a Washington hospital in the US earlier this month.

The 39-year-old is now reported to have returned from the States and is getting to know the new little man in her life.

"Andrea is delighted to share the news of the birth of her baby boy Brett," read a statement on the singer's Facebook page. "Mother and baby are happy and healthy and back home with dad and their daughter Jean."


The couple's daughter Jean was born in April 2012 and named after Andrea's mum who passed away in 1999.

Little Jean arrived less than three years after Andrea married financier Desmond, the son of billionaire businessman Dermot.

The couple married in a lavish ceremony in Co Clare in August 2009.

Andrea sold more than 30 million albums with The Corrs before they took a break in 2006.

The striking brunette has insisted that, if she returns to music, it will be on her own terms as a mother.

"You don't really realise it until you have your own (child) of the overwhelming love," she said. "It's so rewarding. I don't want to go on the road and leave my daughter.

"I am a full-time mother. At the same time, there's still music to be made."
