Gallagher a dad again

Noel Gallagher has become a father for the third time.

Noel Gallagher has become a father for the third time.

The former Oasis guitarist’s partner Sara MacDonald – the mother of his three-year-old son Donovan - gave birth to the couple’s second child, a boy named Sonny Patrick on Friday.

No other information about the baby is yet known.

Noel – who also has 10-year-old daughter Anais with ex-wife Meg Matthews – recently revealed he has put his plans for a solo album on hold to focus on fatherhood.

He said last month: “I'm moving house and my missus is nine months pregnant so I'm not doing anything until well into next year.

"I'll be doing nappies and all that malarkey."

Despite taking a break to spend time with his children, Noel was recently blasted by his brother, former bandmate Liam Gallagher, for seeing little of his nephews.

Liam – who has 10-year-old Lennon from his marriage to Patsy Kensit and nine-year-old Gene with wife Nicole Appleton – said: “I have seen his son! But he hasn't seen my sons. When I have birthday parties, his son's always invited. When his kid had his birthday party, we weren't invited. All this about how he's round my house sipping tea with my kids and taking them for walks in the park - he hasn't seen my kids. He's only seen them at concerts because I've brought them, but he didn't bring his kids because it's not the place for their kids apparently.”
