World champion boxer Ricky Burns became a new dad on Thursday (29Aug13).

The 30-year-old's wife Amanda gave birth to a baby boy almost two weeks after her due date and they have yet to name their son.

The Scottish lightweight champion's sister Bonnie tells Britain's Daily Record, "We're very happy and excited. I got a call from my mum this morning saying Ricky called her to say the baby had been born and it was a boy. Now we're just waiting to see what the plans are to go and meet him."
