Wales football manager Chris Coleman and his wife Charlotte are celebrating the birth of their second child together.

TV presenter Charlotte gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday afternoon and announced the arrival shortly afterwards on Twitter.

The Sky Sports presenter tweeted: "Eventually our little girl made an appearance this lunchtime - 9lbs 1 oz and was worth the wait! Yet to be named."

She had been spotted cheering on Wales during Euro 2016 and it had been feared the baby could have been born during the later stages of the tournament.

The couple, who married last year, already have one son together, 18-month-old Finlay, while Coleman also has four older children with his first wife.

Coleman, who played for Swansea City, Fulham and Crystal Palace, became a national hero this summer after guiding Wales to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 at their first appearance at a major tournament for 58 years.
