Una Foden has introduced her adorable son Tadhg to the world.

The Saturdays’ singer (33) showed off her newborn child (three weeks) in the latest issue of Hello! Magazine, where she poses alongside husband Ben Foden and their daughter Aoife Belle, who is nearly three.

It's an unsurprising move for the Fodens as they also debuted their daughter in the same magazine in 2012.

The loved-up couple, who have been married for two and a half years, said they wanted to stick with traditional Irish names with their second child.

"We were going over names for ages and I'd suggested Ty, which I really liked, when Una said, 'There's an Irish name that's very similar," Ben told Hello! in an exclusive interview. "As soon as she said it, I thought, 'That’s cool.' With Una being Irish and Aoife having a traditional Irish name, it seemed fitting."

Una added: "Tadhg is quite common in Ireland so when people go on about how hard it is to match the pronunciation with the spelling, I say 'Just think, every time you say it, you're learning a new language and culture because you’re speaking a bit of Gaelic."

The pair also divulged the moment they welcomed their second child into the world as dedicated dad Ben said he immediately did "his own check" of the baby after his birth.

"The second he was out, I abandoned poor Una and all my focus switched to Tadhg," he explained. "I did my own check on him and cut the cord, as I had done with Aoife.

"Again, that was an incredible experience. I held him for a while, then lifted him onto Una for that amazing skin-to-skin contact."
