Travis guitarist ANDY DUNLOP is delighted at becoming a father for the first time.

Dunlop's wife JO gave birth to a baby boy on 1 December (05), and the Scottish rocker is smitten with the new arrival, who has been named DYLAN GREEN.

Dunlop gushes, "He's absolutely gorgeous and his mum is well, if a little tired."

The WHY DOES IT ALWAYS RAIN ON ME? hitmakers will soon be expecting another bundle of joy, as frontman Fran Healy's fiancee Nora Kryst is due to give birth to their first child early next year (06).
