Peter Stringfellow has become a father again at the age of 72 after his wife Bella gave birth to a girl.

Their daughter, Rosabella, was born at London's Portland Hospital this morning , weighing 6lb 6oz.

Stringfellow said: "We are overwhelmed with love for her."

The nightclub owner, who has two grown-up children and married Bella in 2009, announced in February that they were expecting their first child in August.

Speaking at the time, he told the Daily Mirror: "My last child was born 48 years ago, so I'm up for the challenge.

''I know it's going to be tough so of course we'll have nannies - a night nanny, and a day nanny and a holiday nanny and an aeroplane nanny. I'm ready for the hardship.''
