Former British boxing champion Ricky Hatton is celebrating after becoming a father again.

The sports star, nicknamed The Hitman, took to his Twitter.com page on Wednesday (31Jul13) to show off a photo of his baby daughter just hours after his partner Jennifer gave birth to the tot.

Fearne Grace joins her elder sister Millie, while Hatton also has a son, called Campbell, from a previous relationship.

The proud dad tweeted, "Me & Jen just had another baby girl. 6lb 13oz, born 5.45am. She is lovely, perfect, mum is fine also. I feel blessed."

Hatton later posted a snapshot of his three kids, which he captioned, "My 3 greatest ever achievements. Campbell, Millie & Fearne Hatton."
