Little Sienna is dad Kyle Lafferty's lucky charm

NI football star finding net for his two 'perfect people'

Northern Ireland football star Kyle Lafferty and his model missus Vanessa have scored a winner with their new baby girl Sienna.

The doting parents welcomed their new addition into the world on August 1 - Vanessa's 27th birthday.

And her stunning mum was back in her tiny pre-pregnancy clothes within a week of giving birth to the tot, who she describes as "perfection".

During her pregnancy, Vanessa documented her growing bump by posing for a series of sexy snaps in her underwear and she is already showing off her svelte figure with more hot shots on social media.

Last week the couple's first child together had a busy visit to Belfast.

Sienna travelled with Vanessa on the ferry from Scotland to see Kyle in action in Northern Ireland's game against Bosnia and Herzegovina at Windsor Park last Saturday afternoon.

The following day they visited The Dock Café in Belfast's Titanic Quarter and, wearing a baby pink fluffy coat and matching outfit, Sienna then went with Vanessa and Kyle to Victoria Square to meet up with Kyle's family.

Last Tuesday Sienna was at Windsor Park for the 3-0 friendly win against Israel.

Vanessa posted a photo of the pair in the stands on Instagram, calling Sienna her 'mini-me'. Lots of Northern Ireland fans took to social media to congratulate the couple on their new arrival, with some fans describing little Sienna as a good luck charm. Another even wrote that he needed her dad to score to win him a bet.

As it has turned out, Sienna has indeed been quite the lucky charm for 30-year-old Kyle from Kesh, Co Fermanagh.

At her first Hearts game less than two weeks after she was born, Kyle scored for the Scottish club against Celtic. A week later, Kyle moved to Rangers, his dream club.

In a touching post, Scot Vanessa said: "Super proud and over the moon to watch Kyle play for his dream club, and most of all take our little princess along to the games to support her daddy. It's been a great year but time to move on and excited to see what the season brings."

Kyle described the move from Hearts to Rangers as getting "to live that dream every young boy from Northern Ireland has".

Kyle has referred to his two girls as "the perfect people", and even uploaded a sexy snap of Vanessa in a Rangers shirt.

Kyle has also celebrated a year without gambling. Last year the footballer admitted he burst into tears when telling Vanessa about his gambling addiction.

Kyle lost thousands of pounds gambling heavily for almost a decade and at one stage was found guilty of breaching FA gambling rules and handed a £23,000 fine.
