British singer LEE RYAN was left stunned after discovering he has fathered a secret love child.
Ryan, a member of boyband Blue, is engaged to marry Samantha Miller, the mother of his young son Rayn, and was shocked to discover earlier this year he also has a two-year-old daughter.
Jessica Keevil contacted Ryan to inform him he had another child and he underwent a DNA test to prove he was the girl's father.
The test was positive - and the 26-year-old has vowed to stand by Keevil and the tot.
He says, "I will definitely be a part of my daughter's life, but I would appreciate it if everyone could respect this is a private matter."
His spokesperson adds, "Lee was contacted by Jessica Keevil to say that her daughter was Lee's child. Lee immediately sorted a paternity test, and he is the father of the child. Lee is now sorting out access and child support."
