Shane Filan expecting third baby

Westlife star Shane Filan and his wife Gillian are expecting their third child together

Shane Filan is set to become a father for the third time.

The Westlife singer - who already has a daughter Nicole, three, and nine-month-old son Patrick with wife Gillian - is thrilled to be adding to his family and revealed the baby is due next year.

He said: "I know a lot of you have already heard the rumours, but I wanted to confirm to you myself that Gillian and I are expecting another baby.

"We've been keeping it a complete secret from everyone for a while, and made the announcement at my 30th birthday party on Saturday (04.07.09). The baby's due early next year and we're completely over the moon about it. The thought of becoming a dad for the third time is just amazing!"

Speaking after Nicole's birth in 2005, Shane said: "It was the most emotional and amazing experience of my life."

"The baby looks like me. She's got dark hair and is absolutely gorgeous. Gillian will be staying in hospital for a few days and I can't wait to get her and Nicole back home."
