SCOTTISH Secretary Danny Alexander has become a father for the second time. His wife Rebecca gave birth to the couple's second daughter, Isla, at Guys and St Thomas' hospital in London shortly yesterday morning. The couple already have one daughter, Isabel.
The Highlands Lib Dem MP, who was appointed Secretary of State for Scotland in the coalition government on 12 May, will return to Scotland to spend time with his family.
Alexander, 38, said: "It has been a very exciting couple of weeks, but this is the undoubted highlight."
