Shane and Kayleah Long have welcomed their third child into the world.

The couple announced in May they were expecting again and this time, it's a boy - Jax. Kayleah shared a touching family photo of the new arrival on Instagram with daughters Teigan (six) and Erin (two).

She shared that little Jax was "rushed straight to the care unit" after his birth, but did not explain why. However the new mother reassured followed that he is now "on the mend".

Kayleah, a former model, has been keeping her followers up to date with her pregnancy, sharing the "last pic of me preggers" just last week.

"The last 9 months have gone fast at times and slow at others and we are totally ready to meet our little guy," she wrote.

The Irish footballer 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 and recently celebrated their third wedding anniversary.

After Ireland's Euros campaign ended this summer, the pair holidayed in Shane's native Tipperary.
