Football star Shane Long and wife Kayleah welcome third child


Shane Long and his wife Kayleah have welcomed their third child.

The happy couple, who are already proud parents to daughter Teigan, 6, and Erin, 2 – announced that they were expecting back in May.

Taking to Instagram, Kayleah announced that they had welcomed a son named Jax, but revealed that their bouncing baby boy didn’t have the smoothest welcome into the world.

“Our little warrior Jax made his appearance yesterday but was rushed straight to the care unit!” she wrote, alongside a photo of the happy family.

“But he is on the mend after 24hours and his sisters finally got their hands on him today,” she assured her followers.

Shane and Kayleah first met while he was playing for Reading over in the UK.

The couple later wed in 2013, in a stunning ceremony at St Mary’s Parish Church in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow.
