Noel Gallagher has named his newborn baby Donovan Rory MacDonald Gallagher and believes that it would someday a legend.
Noel Gallagher insists his newborn son will become a "legend". The Oasis
guitarist - whose partner Sara MacDonald gave birth to their first child together, Donovan Rory Gallagher, on Saturday (22.09.07) - already has high hopes for the three-day-old tot.
He sent friends and family a text message to announce the birth, which read: "He shall go by the name of Donovan Rory MacDonald Gallagher and he will be a legend. Give thanks and praise."
Donovan - who was delivered naturally after a seven-hour labour – weighed 7lb 5oz and both mother and baby are said to be doing well.
Noel - who already has a seven-year-old daughter, Anais, with ex-wife Meg Matthews - recently said he wanted to call his new child Goliath or Ghandi, as he wanted his baby to have an alliterating name. The 'Don't Look Back In Anger' singer quipped: "I'm keen on Gandhi or Goliath. Just imagine it, Gandhi Gallagher! I like anything that begins with a G really. But whatever name we choose it's going to be legendary."
Noel and PR Sara have been dating for around seven years. Noel's brother and Oasis bandmate Liam Gallagher has three children, son Gene with his fiancee Nicole Appleton, son Lennon with his ex-wife Patsy Kensit and daughter Molly, who was conceived after Liam had a brief fling with singer Lisa Moorish in 1998.
