Robbie and Claudine Keane are about to become parents for the second time - a fact their son Robert Jnr is having a hard time getting his head around.

The six-year-old couldn't be happier he's about to become a big brother, but is concerned his mum could be giving birth to a ... lizard.

Robbie posted a video of his son airing his concerns on Facebook.

"Is there actually a baby in your tummy?" the youngster asks Claudine (left) in the video.

"Are you sure it's not a lizard? Are you sure it's not a monkey?"

LA Galaxy star Robbie clearly found the video funny, writing: "Pure innocence from a very excited, slightly confused 6-year-old."

After breaking the news, Claudine admitted it will be a challenge to care for two children instead of one.

"We're so excited. It's amazing news and obviously something that Robert has wanted for a long time - a sibling," she said.

"I wonder what it'll be like when we have to split our attention between two kids.

"That will be interesting, but so far it's the most exciting thing in the world," she said.

First gig for Williams

Rising music star Marlon Williams looks set to play his first Irish gig this October.

The New Zealand singer (below), who recently sold out his first-ever London show, is coming to the Academy 2 on October 23 as part of his UK and Ireland tour.

The Christchurch crooner's career has been going from strength to strength since the launch of his debut album earlier this year and now he's hoping to make waves in the Irish music industry.

Tickets are priced at €13 and are available from www.ticketmaster.ie.

Foodies shell out

Restaurateur Niall Sabongi has just thrown open the doors of his new eatery Klaw in Temple Bar.

The tiny 12-seater bar is the inner-city crab shack style sister to Niall's Rock Lobster in Harvey Nichols in Dundrum.

The Oyster Happy Hour, with all oysters just €1, has already got Dublin scenesters tongues wagging.
