Simon Zebo welcomes fourth child with fiancée Elvira Fernandez

Simon Zebo and his fiancée Elvira Fernandez have welcomed their fourth child together.

he Irish rugby star took to Instagram on Friday to announce the arrival of baby Isabella by sharing a photo of him and his future wife in hospital with their newborn baby.

He captioned the photo: “Isabella Kate Fernandez Zebo 4/21/22”

A host of famous faces flocked to the comments section to congratulate the couple, with Love Island winner and Olympian Greg O’Shea writing, “Big congratulations!”

Former South African rugby player Brad Barritt said: “Congratulations Zebo fam.”

And Northern Irish boxer Jamie Conlan added: “Congratulations Zeeb’s, great news.”

Simon and Elvira are also the parents of Jacob (6), Sofia (5) and Noah (2).

The couple got engaged in Paris in 2019, just four weeks after the birth of their third child, Noah.

Sharing their engagement photo, Simon said: “My childhood sweetheart said yes.

“From the bushes in Blackrock as 15/16 year olds to the bright lights of Paris as the parents of three beautiful children.

“I love you forever Eva, my queen.”

The couple are due to wed in an intimate ceremony at the 5-star Aghadoe Heights Hotel just outside Killarney, County Kerry this summer.

None of Simon’s Ireland and Munster team-mates will be present.

“It will be a very small and intimate party this summer, it will just be our close family,” Elvira told RSVP Magazine last month.

“We want to make things official this summer and hopefully the world will be more normal next year because I want to have a church wedding and a big party with everyone in Spain next year.

“My parents, my sisters and my brother will be coming to Killarney, just my immediate family.

“We wanted to do something more special than just go to the registry office and sign a piece of paper.”
