A brief statement on the singer's website simply reads: "Gigi and Van Morrison are proud to announce the birth of their firstborn son George Ivan Morrison III. 'Little Van' born Dec. 28 2009 -- the spitting image of his daddy. He is a dual citizen of Northern Ireland/United Kingdom and the United States of America."
The couple have kept the location of the birth secret.
Van Morrison's first child is 39-year-old singer-songwriter Shana Morrison. He was previously married to Janet Minto.
Morrison started his 45-year career as the front man of Them, scoring hits with 'Gloria' and 'Here Comes the Night', before launching a solo career that has touched upon soul, jazz, R&B, country and blues. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993 but famously refused to appear.
His more recent activity saw him perform his 1968 classic album, 'Astral Weeks', in its entirety in 2008.
