Westlife star Kian Egan has become a dad.

The singer and his wife Jodi Albert became proud parents of baby boy Koa, weighing in at 8lbs and 2 ozs, born at 6.10pm last night in Sligo General Hospital.

It had been the couple’s wish that their baby was born in Ireland, and in Kian’s home town of Sligo.

“That was how we planned it and it went to plan except it happened a little early,” Mr Egan told the Irish Independent, revealing that January 1 had been the due date of their little arrival.

Mr Egan, a surfing fanatic, revealed the name Koa was a Hawaiian name which he and his wife had found while checking a list of names and they liked it.
