Dennis Taylor, the 1985 world champion, has become a father for the fourth time.
Taylor, 57, is now the proud father of baby Amber, his first daughter.
The Northern Irishman retired from professional snooker in 2000 but remains a popular member of the circuit as a BBC TV commentator.
He is also much in demand as an after dinner speaker and appeared on the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing last year.
Taylor and wife Louise have a two year-old son and he has two sons from a previous marriage.
