Dublin GAA stars Dean Rock and Niamh McEvoy have welcomed their first child together.
The couple announced with a sweet Instagram post on Sunday that they are now the proud parents of a little girl they named Sadie Rose Rock.
Dean, 32, told his 39,200 followers that being a father was “magical” and added that he was “in awe” of his footballer fiancé.
Sharing a photo with their little girl from the hospital bed, he wrote: “Sadie Rose Rock. I am in awe of you, Niamh McEvoy. you are an amazing woman What a magical feeling️. Sadie has me wrapped around her little finger.”
Fans and followers flocked to the comments section to congratulate the couple on their latest addition to the family, with the official Dublin GAA account leading the tributes by saying, “Congratulations to you both!”

Mrs. Brown’s boys Actor Danny O’Carroll said: “Congratulations to you both”
And sports presenter Jacqui Hurley added: “Amazing! Happy birthday guys!”
It comes after Dean and Niamh got engaged during a romantic stay at the 5-star Merrion Hotel in Dublin.
Dean shared the exciting news on his Instagram account back in December, posting a photo of the couple relaxing in their hotel suite while Niamh showed off her engagement ring.

“If she’s not too busy that day, she said she’s going to marry me. I’ll take this!!” he wrote as he tagged his wife-to-be in the post.
Together, the pair share a staggering 11 All-Ireland winners’ medals – Dean has seven and Niamh an impressive four.
And while the two are talented athletes, they’ve also recently ventured into the business world by opening their own cafe Fancy That together in Garristown, north Dublin last year.
The café is so busy that Niamh even gave up her job as a teacher to focus on the business full-time.
