Claire Sweeney Welcomes A ‘Miracle’ Baby Boy With Ex Fiancé Daniel Reilly


Actress and TV personality, Claire Sweeney gave birth to her first child yesterday afternoon.

The 42-year-old said that she was “thrilled” to welcome her baby boy, who she has previously described as her “miracle” child. 

During her pregnancy Claire opened up about her struggle to have a child and how, after two miscarriages, she would have stopped at nothing to become a mother.

Claire said: “I always wanted to be a mum and would have stopped at nothing to have this baby. When I was going through that period of struggling to have a child, I really thought it was never going to happen.

“After the second miscarriage, it really hit me hard. If I hadn’t fallen pregnant when I did, even if I had been on my own, I’d have considered going down the route of IVF, sperm banks, or even adoption in the future.

“I just wanted to be a mum.”

Aww, we’re so happy for her!

The former Brookside star found out that she was pregnant weeks after splitting with her son’s dad, Daniel, who has been incredibly supportive and can’t wait to be a father.

Speaking to the Mirror last month, Claire said: “I am so glad I am having his baby, because he is a wonderful person and he has really looked after me and been so supportive through everything.

“I wouldn’t say we are back in a relationship but we have become very, very close again. We are spending a lot of time together and we are both really happy to be having this baby together.

“The most important thing is to get this baby born Healthy and happy, then we will see what happens naturally after that. I’m not ruling anything out.

“We didn’t split because of a big row or because either of us had done anything naughty. I was in London and he was in Liverpool and it was hard. We just thought the relationship had run its course.”

Ooh, a reconcilation is sounding promising to us!

Daniel was absolutely ecstatic to find out that Claire was expecting, proudly tweeting back in May: “I’m going to be a Dad! Love you already son. Blessed.”

Since the birth he has excitedly been retweeting well wishes from stars, including Carol Vorderman and Steps’ Ian H Watkins but the pair are remaining schtum about what their baby’s name will be after quashing rumours that they had named him Walton.

We can’t wait to find out AND see a photo of the little one.

Congrats again, Claire and Daniel!
