Pierce Brosnan gushes as he welcomes fourth grandchild
A proud Pierce Brosnan has announced the birth of his new grandchild.
The 69-year-old shared an Instagram post on Thursday introducing his grandson, Jaxxon Elijah Brosnan, who he said was born on Saturday, November 12 at 3.06 p.m.
"All good blessings to you my dearest grandson, welcome.
“Congratulations my darling Sean, Sanja and Marley. Peace be with you," Brosnan wrote alongside two close-up images of Jaxxon.
The newborn, Brosnan's fourth grandchild, is his son Sean's second child with wife Sanja Banic.
The couple also share daughter Marley May, seven.
Brosnan has two older grandchildren named Isabella and Lucas through his late daughter Charlotte, who died of ovarian cancer in 2013, alongside his newest grandchild and Marley May.
Along with Sean and Charlotte, Brosnan is also a father to son Christopher, 50, from his marriage to Australian actress Cassandra Smith, who died of ovarian cancer in 1991. After he remarried in 2001, his wife, Keely Shaye Smith, gave birth to two sons — Dylan, 25, and Paris, 21.
The star previously spoke about being a grandad to Irish newspaper The Herald in 2015.
"I'm a proud grandfather now. There's still a lot of life in the old man, and I'll keep going till I can go no more. Life is so precious.
"It can be snatched away without any prior warning, so why waste it? That's why I enjoy my wonderful, beautiful family, my children and my grandchildren."
