Westlife's Mark Feehily Expecting First Child

Westlife's Mark Feehily has announced he and his fiancé are expecting their first child.

The singer announced the news on social media by sharing a photo of himself in what looks like a dressing room with his partner Cailean O'Neill, a picture of an ultrasound on another phone and a babygrow.

Captioning the snap on his Instagram account, Feehily said "Thanks for all the birthday wishes everyone!!

"It really makes this my most special birthday EVER to let everyone know that later this year we will become Dads for the first time.

"This is the proudest moment of our lives and we are beyond excited to say it out loud! M&Cx"

The couple have been very private about their relationship of almost six years. The pair got engaged in the Maldives in February of this year.

Westlife's Kian Egan shared his excitement of the good news online saying "Such huge excitement here today. Not only is it Mark's birthday, but then for him and Cailean to share the news that they are having a baby.

"You gotta love this Westlife family. 10 Westlife babies now."

The group opened their tour this week in Belfast before they move on to the UK. They will finish up their tour in Dublin's Croke Park for two sold out shows on July 5th and 6th.
