Kyle Lafferty has announced the birth of his daughter Sienna.

The Northern Ireland and Hearts striker took to Twitter on Thursday evening to announce the birth of Sienna Isabella Lafferty on Wednesday along with a picture of the happy family in a hospital maturity ward.

He said: "27 years ago yesterday my stunning wife entered this world, forward all those years and the same date my gorgeous daughter Sienna Isabella Lafferty was born.

"Mummy and sienna both doing great and my love for these two continue to be unconditional."

Thousands of well wishers reacted to the post. Among them was champion Belfast boxer Carl Frampton.

New father Lafferty (30) is at the centre of intense transfer speculation and could be departing Edinburgh for Glasgow as Steven Gerrard is reported to be interested in bringing the player back to Rangers.
