David Beckham has become an uncle again after his sister Joanne gave birth.

The 32-year-old former hairdresser has welcomed her first child into the world with 'Big Brother' star boyfriend Kris Donnelly, and the couple have named their little one Peggy.

She took to Instagram to share a picture of the little one lying on top of her and added the caption: ''9.12.17 THE DAY OUR LIFE CHANGED FOREVER ... such an amazing feeling starting our own family , the love I have for our little princess Peggy is one that is so unconditional ! I'd never of been able to do it without the love of my life ... @krissydonners you was my strength ! Thank you ... #myfamily (sic)''

Joanne also posted pictures of Kris carrying baby Peggy out of the hospital.

She last updated fans on her pregnancy a few weeks ago when she admitted it has been ''very tricky'' to relax during the latter stages.

She wrote on Instagram: ''N E A R L Y . T H E R E !!! Relaxing in my third trimester has been very tricky for me.., I'm sure all you soon to be mums will know that comfort is the key to getting a good night sleep! Thankyou to @scandiborn and @bbhugme for our cushion we have loved it (sic)''

David and Victoria Beckham's children, Brooklyn, 18, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 12, and six-year-old Harper, were said to be ''excited'' about having a new cousin in their lives.

A source previously said: ''David's kids are excited about having a new cousin, especially Harper.''

Joanne once dated David's former England teammate Jermain Defoe, and his former Manchester United co-star Dwight Yorke, who is the father of Katie Price's 15-year-old son Harvey.

Kris previously starred in 'Big Brother' in 2009 and went on to date fellow contestant Sophie Reade, and later 'Hollyoaks' actress Jorgie Porter.

David is already an uncle to his elder sister Lynne's five children.
