Twice world champion John Higgins has become a father for the third time.
His wife, Denise, gave birth to daughter Claudia last week. The couple already have two boys, six year-old Pierce and Oliver, three.
Higgins will attempt to shrug off the sleepless nights when he takes part in the first World Series event in Jersey next weekend.
"I'd better do well because my wife is spending a small fortune on pink outfits for the baby," he said.
"But we are thrilled to have our first little girl and while I've had a few sleeps on the couch she has been brilliant. The whole family could not be happier."
