Gerrard, 36, and his wife Alex already have three daughters and had announced late last year that they were expecting their fourth child. Revealing to his followers about the news, Gerrard wrote: “Lio George Gerrard was born this morning at 4.55am . Both are doing great . Our family is complete”.

Back in October, Alex had uploaded an adorable snap with her daughters looking at an ultrascan picture with the message: “Congratulations to the Gerrard family on baby number 4”.

This has been a wonderful week for the former midfielder who was also confirmed as Liverpool’s U-18 manager for next season replacing Neil Critchley who has been promoted to take charge of the U-23 squad.

A number of well-wishers soon took to social media sites to congratulate the duo, including former Liverpool football John Arne Riise. “Big congrats to Mr Steven Gerrard and Alex for finally getting a baby boy. A new legend is born. Be ready for a future captain,” he stated.

Moments before Lio’s birth, Alex had uploaded a picture on her Instagram account as well with Steven and three of their children —Lilly-Ella (13), Lexie (10) and Lourdes (five) — with a caption that read: “soon to be 6”.
