Dance impresario Michael Flatley is celebrating the birth of his first child, after his wife NIAMH gave birth to a baby boy today (26Apr07).
The Riverdance choreographer married dancer, Niamh - who has performed in all of his main shows - in a low-key Catholic ceremony in Ireland last year (Oct06).
Speaking from the Cork University Maternity Hospital, Flatley said: "We are overjoyed. Both mum and baby are doing well. I cannot wait to get Niamh and our baby son home to Castlehyde.
"We would like to thank (our doctor) Professor John Higgins and all the wonderful staff at the hospital."
