"Shay and Becky are extremely happy together and are very excited to welcome their new arrival into the world," his friend and agent Mark Devlin stated.

"From my point of view, I've never seen Shay as happy as this and I wish them all the happiness in the world," he added.

The 39-year-old sports star already has two children from his previous marriage - Shay Jr (9) and Sienna (6).

Shay parted ways with Jane, his wife of 12 years, in 2013.
