    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – The fiancee of actor Pierce Brosnan, environmental journalist and author Keely Shaye Smith, has given birth to the couple’s second son together, a spokesman for the star said Wednesday.

    Paris Beckett Brosnan was born Tuesday in Los Angeles, according to a brief statement issued by publicist Dick Guttman.

    The couple’s first son together, Dylan Thomas Brosnan, is three years old.

    Smith and the Irish-born James Bond star had planned to marry last year but postponed their wedding after Sean Brosnan, the actor’s teenage son from his first marriage, was seriously injured in an automobile accident.

    The couple are now planning to tie the knot this summer.

    Brosnan’s wife of 10 years, Cassandra, died in 1991.
