Brookside star Philip Olivier welcomes fifth child with partner Amy Virtue

Brookside star Philip Olivier has welcomed his fifth child in eight years with partner Amy Virtue.

The actor, 42, who hails from Liverpool, already shares three boys and a girl with Amy, and after the recent arrival of another daughter, they are now a happy family-of-seven.

Philip's dad announced the happy news on Facebook on 20 November, revealing the couple had named their baby girl Selina Sky.

"NUMBER 13. Welcome to our world Selina Sky Borg-Olivier. Born 4 days ago but has been in an incubator until today but will be allowed home once the antibiotics wear off. Little fighter," he penned.

The doting grandfather also explained that "little fighter" Selina has been placed in an incubator for the time being, but would be heading home once the antibiotics wore off.

Benidorm actor Philip revealed he and Amy were expecting their fifth child back in May, and shared an adorable photo of their three sons and baby daughter on Instagram to share the news.

The pair's three sons, Oscar, Sunny Ray and Phoenix could be seen sitting on the sofa together at their family home holding up baby scan photos, while their baby daughter Renée wore a baby grow with "I may be little but I'm going to be a big sister" printed across it.

Philip captioned the snap: "High five here we go again," with a baby emoji. The news came just seven months after the pair's fourth child Renée was born in 2021.

Philip and Amy, whose Instagram account is private, were due to tie the knot in Cyprus in June 2021, but it’s not been confirmed whether the wedding went ahead or not.

The dad-of-five is best known for portraying Timothy "Tinhead" O'Leary in Channel 4 soap Brookside, which was eventually cancelled in 2003.

He's also appeared on shows such as The Games, Come Dine With Me and Four in a Bed, and he also starred as Jason Gallagher in the hit series Benidorm.

Philip is now the CEO at Liverpool City Sights, according to his Instagram bio.
