YESTERDAY BRIAN O’Driscoll and Amy Huberman welcomed a baby boy named Billy. Since then, well wishes have been pouring in from well-wishers.

Here is how Twitter reacted.

The nation was clear: we have high expectations for little Billy

Though some thought it was a tad cruel to give him the same initials as his Dad.

Of course The Lion King was invoked.

Fans from Leinster and UCD sent well wishes.

While Newbridge Silverware supported the face of its line

Lord Mayor of Dublin Christy Burke extended his congratulations

The consensus was that Billy O’Driscoll is pretty much the most adorable name

Though someone did point this out.

As for Brian? He was spotted processing the good news in Eddie Rocket’s.
