Republic of Ireland international striker Shane Long and wife Kayleah are celebrating the birth of their third child.

Kayleah announced the arrival of little 'Jax' this evening on Instagram.

She wrote: "Our little warrior Jax made his appearance yesterday but was rushed straight to the care unit!

"But he is on the mend after 24hours and his sisters finally got their hands on him today #complete #squad #Jax #myworld "

The couple already have two daughters. Teigan (six) and Erin (two).

The Tipperary native met Kayleah when they were both teenagers while he was playing for Reading, where she hails from.

The couple exchanged vows in lavish style in 2013, first exchanging vows at St Mary's Parish Church in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow and celebrating into the night at the Ritz Carlton.
