EastEnders actor Shane Richie has become a dad again after wife Christie gave birth to a baby girl. The daughter is their third child together. The couple already have a son, Mackenzie Blue, 4, and a daughter, Lolita-Belle, 2. Shane also has two sons, Shane Jnr, 22, and Jake, 18, from his marriage to Loose Women star Colleen Nolan.
“We’re delighted, She came out with full theatrical make up on, and screaming! She looks just like her mum. Lovely,” Shane said.
Shane and Christie’s newborn, whose name is yet to be revealed, comes as Shane’s EastEnders character Alfie Moon and screen wife Kat got their son back, after the soap’s controversial baby swap storyline came to a close.
The storyline is the reason Shane kept Christie’s pregnancy secret from the public until recently.
