Guy Ritchie celebrates fourth child

Guy Ritchie has become a father for the fourth time.

The 'Snatch' director's fiancee Jacqui Ainsley - with whom he already has a 14-month son, Rafael with - gave birth to a little girl at a private London hospital and both mother and baby are doing well.

A friend told The Sun newspaper: "They are both utterly delighted at the birth.

"The fact they now have a girl is an added bonus - Guy always wanted a boy and a girl."

No further details about the birth or the baby have been revealed.

As well as his two children with Jacqui, Guy, 44, has sons, Rocco, 12, and seven-year-old David from his marriage to Madonna.

Guy and Jacqui - who recently got engaged - confirmed they were expecting their second child together, after she was pictured on the red carpet sporting a baby bump.

A spokesman said: "Guy Ritchie and Jacqui Ainsley are thrilled to confirm they are expecting their second child together later this year."

Before announcing the news, Jacqui, 30, revealed she and Guy were keen to have another child and admitted they both dreamed of having a "big family".

She said: "I'd love more children. Guy and I have always wanted a big family. It's something we planned all along.

"This is the first time I've been a biological mother but we've got the two big boys and they absolutely dote on Raph. They're always dancing with him and wanting to play with him."
