Brendan Cole has become a father for the second time.

The axed Strictly Come Dancing professional’s wife Zoe Hobbs confirmed that she gave birth to a baby boy on 12th March, with a sweet new Instagram post. The post was also shared by Brendan himself.

It’s said that the parents have chosen the unusual name of Danté for their new son.

The adorable pic showed a photo of the new bubba’s legs. And Zoe even revealed that their son shared a sweet similarity with his father – their bandy legs!

She wrote, ‘Two little sets of ducky feet. Bandy legs just like his daddy!’. How cute!

Zoe also revealed that the new arrival was luckily born on one of Brendan’s days off, so he could be by his wife’s side for the special moment.

Brendan excitedly broke the happy news to his friends at the TRIC Awards earlier this week, according to The Sun.

Proud father Brendan, 41, was beaming as he arrived at the Grosvener Hotel in London for the event.

And he apparently told his friends Zoe had been fantastic throughout the birth yesterday and said that their little boy was happy and healthy.

The lovely news comes after Brendan paid tribute to his wife of seven years, uploading a Mother’s Day post on behalf of their four-year-old daughter Aurelia.

‘To my mummy on Mother’s Day! I love you, love from Aurélia,’ he captioned the cute black and white shot.

Brendan and Zoe announced they were expecting their second child in September, revealing she conceived while they were holidaying in Spain.

‘Yes it’s true! Came back from Mallorca recently with a little excess baggage!’ Zoe wrote on Instagram.

Brendan recently confessed he’d love to take part in I’m A Celebrity after he was ditched from Strictly after 13 years – confessing he’ll have more ‘free time’ to pursue other career paths.

Yes it's true! Came back from Mallorca recently with a little excess baggage! @brendancoleinsta #whathavewedone #babyonboard #excitedandscared #parents #ourfamily #morejunkinthetrunk

The 41-year-old said: “Now that time is all of a sudden free, all of the things I wanted to do is now available.”

Hinting that shows such as I’m A Celeb and Celebrity Big Brother have approached him before, Brendan admitted: “I have never had from July 31 until Christmas off. I have never been able to take on any other responsibilities, not even the odd corporate job because your time is devoted to Strictly.”

Aw, congrats to Brendan and his family on their new arrival!
