Singer Shane Richie Jnr is celebrating becoming a dad for the first time.
Shane Jnr, son of resort-born TV presenter Coleen Nolan and EastEnders actor Shane Richie, has welcomed daughter Amelia Rose to the world, sharing a picture on Twitter.
The former St Mary’s Catholic Academy pupil, who appeared at the Opera House back in October in the world premiere of musical Last Night A DJ Saved My Life, said, on the social media site: “Welcome to the world my beautiful Amelia Rose. Mum’s doing great, emotional and long day. #love #daughter”
His impending fatherhood was announced on national TV by his mum on ITV’s Loose Women in September, also revealing that he was not in a relationship with the baby’s mum, called Emma.
Shane Jnr’s younger brother, pop band Rixton frontman Jake Roche said, also on Twitter: “I’m an uncle.
“Wow!! So happy.
“Going to be a great dad @shanerichiejnr!
“Can’t wait to meet her. Love you mate x.”
