New dad Steve McFadden

Steve McFadden has become a father.

The 'EastEnders' actor welcomed his 6lb 3oz daughter into the world yesterday (29.06.09) after his partner Rachel Sidwell gave birth via caesarean section at London's Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

A representative for the 50-year-old star said: "Steve is delighted. Both mother and baby are doing well."

The baby is yet to be named.

Steve and Rachel who have three children each with other partners met while taking their respective offspring to school.

Rachel eventually left her surgeon husband to be with the actor.

Steve recently revealed his excitement at becoming a father again, saying he felt he was being given a "second chance" at life.

He said: "Children are a bond, a physical entity and living proof of your love and commitment to each other. This is a very exciting time for me, I feel like I'm having a fresh start.
