Shane Filan of Westlife checked in with fans on the veteran Irish pop band’s blog at MySpace (@westlife) on Monday (July 6), revealing that he and wife Gillian are expecting their third child. Filan writes:
I know a lot of you have already heard the rumors, but I wanted to confirm to you myself that Gillian and I are expecting another baby.
We’ve been keeping it a complete secret from everyone for a while, and made the announcement at my 30th birthday party on Saturday. The baby’s due early next year and we’re completely over the moon about it. The thought of becoming a dad for the third time is just amazing!
Thanks, as always, for all your support
