Van Morrison has become a father for the third time.
The 64-year-old singer - whose real name is George Ivan Morrison - and partner Gigi Lee welcomed son George Ivan Morrison III into the world yesterday (28.12.09).
The 'Brown Eyed Girl' hitmaker wrote on his website: "Gigi and Van Morrison are proud to announce the birth of their first born son, George Ivan Morrison III. Little Van, born Dec 28, 2009 - the spitting image of his daddy. He is a citizen of Northern Ireland/United Kingdom and the United States."
A spokesman for Morrison - who was born in Northern Ireland but now splits his time between the UK and America - said the couple are keeping the birth location private.
Morrison has two grown up daughters from previous relationships.
Earlier this year, Morrison banned fans from drinking alcohol at his concerts.
The legendary musician - who battled alcohol addiction in the 70s and 80s and is now teetotal - told bosses at the Brighton Dome in Sussex, England, not to sell any alcohol before or during his performance in September because it might disturb his singing.
