Howzat! - the Northern Irish wife of Sir Ian Botham's son, Liam, has given birth to a little boy.

Socialite Lisa Harrison Botham married Liam Botham on the Caribbean island of Mustique in 2013.

Last night, Lisa took to social media website Instagram to reveal her good news to the world.

"Welcome to the world Benji Botham," wrote the proud new mum alongside a photograph of herself and her newborn son in Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital. "I didn't think it was possible to feel so much love."

Both Benji and mum appeared happy, with the dark-haired bundle sleeping against his smiling mum as she watched over him tenderly.

Lisa and Liam started dating in 2012. Sir Ian and Lady Kath met Lisa when they stayed at the Merchant Hotel in Belfast after attending the IN! Glamour Awards at Belfast City Hall that November. IN! - which Lisa ran with her sister Hayley - ceased publication after seven years last month.
