The couple are proud new parents

Una Healy and Ben Foden have named their baby daughter Aoife Belle Foden.

Rugby star Ben announced on Twitter yesterday that his 30-year-old fiancée had given birth to their first child.

‘I am officially a Dad!!!!!! Una an baby are both amazing and healthy!!!! So proud of them both! #babybenuna,’ Tweeted Ben, 26.

Aoife traditionally means ‘beauty’, the couple explain, while Belle translates from French as ‘beautiful’.

Irish Una‘s Saturdays band mates have been to see the new arrival today.

‘Just left the hospital from seeing @unahealy and Aoife she is unreal! Absolutely amazing!! So proud!’ Tweets Rochelle Wiseman, 22.

Meanwhile, smitten Mollie King, 24, appears to be confused about the correct spelling of the little girl’s name: ‘Oh my goodness I’m in love with Aoifa!! So lovely to see mummy @unahealy doing so well too!!! X x x.’
