CIAN HEALY has welcomed his second child with his wife Laura Smith.
The Ireland and Leinster prop announced on Instagram that their newborn was ‘happy, healthy and full of smiles’ as they revealed his unique name.
Taking to Instagram, the 34-year-old shared an adorable picture of the newborn’s hands.
In the post, Healy said: “Russell Healy joined the family. Happy, healthy and full of smiles!”
Healy then praised his wife Laura for her courage throughout, saying: “I’m so proud of @ssssmithser and how she approached birth and guided him into our world. It’s hard to describe such immeasurable strength and love.”

The pair are already parents to Russell’s older brother Beau, who was born in January 2021, with Healy adding: “So a baby brother for Beau and another little dude for us to show the way.”
Healy heartwarmingly concluded the post, saying “Life is good.”
