Congratulations to Tanya Bardsley and her footballer husband Phil who have welcomed their fourth child together! The proud new parents announced the arrival of baby son Ralphi Bardsley exclusively to HELLO! magazine, revealing that the new arrival weighed in at 6lbs, 4oz - coincidentally the same birth weight as both his parents - and that both mother and baby are doing well.
Tanya and Phil revealed the happy news that they were expecting a fourth addition to the family back in April, in an exclusive interview with HELLO!. The couple, who have been married since 2014, already also parents to sons Rocco, seven, and two-year-old Renz, and Tanya's 14-year-old daughter Gabriella from a previous relationship.
Tanya and Phil Bardsley have welcomed their fourth child, a baby boy named Ralphi
Earlier this week, shortly before the birth of little Ralphi, Tanya admitted that she was feeling "fed up" of being heavily pregnant, and was more than ready to welcome the newest addition to her family.
The Real Housewives of Cheshire star also revealed that she had been trying out a new technique ahead of her son's arrival - hypnobirthing.
"My other births were so painful, so I'm trying a different way and hopefully it won't be as traumatic this time," Tanya told HELLO! Online.
Pregnancy certainly didn't slow Tanya down; she continued to film her role for the hit ITVBe reality show, as well as running her life coaching business and caring for her three children "When you have your first one you can just sleep all day and rest and it's all lovely, and it's none of that!" she said. "These young kids they don't care if you're pregnant or not, they want looking after."
