Steven Gerrard has shared his very first snap of his gorgeous new baby boy, Lio George Gerrard, on Instagram. 


The football legend announced the birth of his son last week, stating that his "family is now complete".


In the picture, tiny little Lio can be seen wrapped in a grey and white blanket and fast asleep, looking perfectly adorable. 


Last week Gerrard confirmed via Instagram that both baby Lio and mum, Alex, are "doing great," and he also added that "our family is complete" - which suggests that the couple are not planning to have anymore kids.



Baby Lio will now be welcomed into the world by three beautiful sisters Lilly-Ella, 13, Lexie, 10, and Lourdes, five.


Back in October, Alex Gerrard, 34, announced that the family were expecting baby number four - breaking the news on Twitter with an adorable image of her daughters looking at an ultrasound. 


The image of baby Lio has been liked over 243,000 times, with thousands upon thousands of people sending their well wishes to the Gerrard family. 


"Congratulations on the new addition. Surprised little man hasn't got an LFC baby grow already. That's the first thing I did for my son," wrote one football fan.
