Claudine Keane has spoken of her excitement at welcoming her second child into the world.

The model, who is married to Ireland captain and LA Galaxy star Robbie Keane, announced in an adorable Facebook video that they are expecting a little brother or sister for Robert Jr (five).

"We couldn't resist sharing Robert's reaction to the good news last week on Facebook," she wrote in her column in the Irish Daily Star.

"He is so excited and can't wait to be an older brother. He's wanted this for a long time."

Little Robbie seems thrilled with the exciting baby news and Claudine said that he is constantly asking if it's true.

"He's asking my really funny questions like, 'Mummy, are you sure it's definitely a baby and not a lizard," she said.

"He's so hilarious, he's thinking so hard because he wants to make sure it's actually a baby."
