BABY GIRL FOR BOYZ STAR.
The singer's wife Lisa gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in Dublin's Holles Street Hospital late on Saturday night.
In a last-minute change of heart, the couple decided to call their new daughter Mia.
They had planned to name her Jodie, after their favourite actress Jodie Foster.
Doting dad Keith said: "We are over the moon, but we do not want any intrusion at the moment.
"This is a family time and although the media have been great to us we now need time to ourselves.
"I would definitely not rule out having more children - we'll wait and see what happens now!"
The couple already have a four-year-old son, Jordan, and Keith revealed that his wife had been secretly hoping for a little girl.
A hospital spokesperson said everything went well with the birth despite Lisa's difficult pregnancy.
She also said that mother and daughter are resting comfortably".
Keith said he reckoned "Jordan might just be a little bit jealous" of the addition to the family.
"He was the first grandchild in the family on both sides so he's well used to being spoiled," he said. "I'd say his nose might be a little out of joint.
"Everybody dotes on him and he's used to being the centre of attention.
"But as far as he's concerned it's his baby and no-one else's."
Boyzone manager Louis Walsh said he is delighted for Keith, who he set on the road to success.
"I've just heard the news and I must say I'm really happy for him," he said yesterday.
"I haven't spoken to him yet, but I wish them both the best of luck," he said.
