ACTRESS Denise McCormack has become a mother for the second time.
The former Love/Hate star gave birth to Sidney Michael Gammell last Friday.
Drimnagh native Denise, who is best-known for playing tragic Linda, the wife of gangster Fran in the RTE gangland phenomenon, told the Herald that she and partner Barry Gammell are over the moon with their new addition, a brother for their two-year-old son Harvey.
Denise said the newborn is "healthy and happy" after his arrival.
While she is taking time out to bond with her new baby at the family home in Co Wicklow, the 37-year-old said she will not rule out an early return to work if a suitable project were to come up in the future.
