During an interview ahead of his Dublin gig the radio host from Spin 1038 asked how Macklemore spent St Patrick’s Day.

Expecting something involving Guinness and a green hat or two, Macklemore’s answer in fact revealed that he had welcomed another daughter to the world with his wife, who he’s been together with for over 10 years,

He said: ‘To be honest, I haven’t said this publicly, cue the airhorn. I spent it in the hospital with my brand new daughter, who was born right before St Patrick’s Day.’

The interviewer couldn’t quite believe the news and joked that they should stop the interview right there. He said the exclusive was ‘incredible’.

A fan also wrote on the post and said that the singer had announced the news during the night before’s performance. They wrote: ‘He announced it to the whole crowd last night! Was amazing crowd went mental 😍’.

Macklemore and his wife announced the news that they were expecting another baby 6 months ago in a lighthearted video on Instagram.

During the video he said: ‘I woke up today and had an idea. You guys have been such a huge part of our lives that I wanted to let you in on a little secret.

‘Trisha is pregnant and today we are going to find out the gender of our child’.

Seattle… Second time’s the charm. 😉 (and yes, both announcements are true)

Instead of revealing that the couple were expecting a daughter, the singer instead pulled out a ticket to say he had added more show dates to his Key Arena performance.

Posting about her second pregnancy just a few weeks before she gave birth Tricia said she felt a lot more relaxed.

She said: ‘🤗Final magical weeks🤗 What a different experience the second time around. Less worried about everything and full confidence I can do anything. Always channeling every mother before me 💫’.

Congratulations to Ben and Tricia on their new arrival!
