Westlife’s Mark Feehily Just Became A Dad For The First Time

Mark announced the news with the cutest Instagram post of him and his partner, Cailean, with their new baby between them.

Becoming a first-time parent is both extremely terrifying and unbelievably exciting all wrapped up into one. While it can be overwhelming, it is generally a time filled with happiness and excitement.

Now a first-time dad, Westlife’s Mark Feehily definitely knows what we’re talking about.

Just over three months ago, Mark posted a photo of himself and Cailean holding an ultrasound photo, announcing to the world that later this year they would be becoming “dads for the first time”.

The couple looked completely smitten and ever since then, Westlife fans have been waiting for the moment of their baby’s arrival.

“Baby Layla born safe & sound @ 7.27pm on October 1st
2019! We’re the happiest Dads in the world! ❤️👶🏻🇮🇪🌈

Fans were
quick to send their best wishes to the happy couple, as thousands of comments
came flooding in under the post:

One fan commented, “Congrats Mark on your first born!! ❤️”

Another said, “Congratulations darliiings ❤💛

We couldn’t be happier for them and wish them the best of
luck on their parenting journey.
