Daniel and Majella O'Donnell celebrate arrival of second grandchild with precious photo
Daniel and Majella O'Donnell are enjoying their time in the grandparents' baby bubble.
Majella, a businesswoman, announced the happy news on Facebook on Friday, sharing a precious picture of her with her newborn grandson Archie. She counts granddaughter Olivia as her eldest grandchild, who is nearly two years old.
"So our grandson's name has been confirmed! Archie Daniel Thomas Shields," she wrote on Facebook.
Majella has two children Siobhan and Michael from her first marriage and wed Daniel in 2002 and the country crooner said he considers himself "very lucky to have them in my life".
The pair wed in their 40s and Majella admitted they did try for a baby, but it wasn't meant to be.
"Well yes, we did try but nothing happened. It wasn't meant to be. We didn't try for too long because I was 42 when I married him, we never prevented it but it never happened.
"Now I realise it was for the best. Imagine if I was at home and a child going to school? Now we have the best of both worlds - Olivia is like having our own baby," she told RSVP Magazine
Majella said her own parenting style was "fairly strict" but also filled them with encouragement and gave lots of love.
"I was fairly strict, I had a very strict upbringing so I suppose that definitely rubbed off on me. Saying that, I would like to think I was a watered down version of what I had," she added. "
"I made a massive point in telling them that they could do whatever they wanted to do and achieve whatever they wanted to achieve in life and how much I love them, because for me, this wasn't something I heard much of...You do your best as a parent and you will always do something wrong.
"But you do your best."
