Strictly Come Dancing star Ore Oduba has announced he’s welcomed his first child with wife Portia in a gushing message on social media.
The TV presenter took to Twitter and Instagram to share the lovely news that he has become a father with fans, revealing that the pair welcomed a baby boy, who they named Roman.
He was quickly met with messages of congratulations from his fans, with one tweeting, “You’re a dad! Big love to you and Portia. Even more amazing moments to come….”
While another said, “Congratulations to you both ! I wish the little man all the good things in life ! xxx”.
And a third gushed, “Many congratulations to you all. A beautiful picture”.
Luckily, his new bundle of joy arrived before the start of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing tour, which Ore is hosting.
He previously said, “We’re hoping the baby will be with us by the time the tour starts.
“We’re working parents, we’ve got to earn the bread and make sure the nest is well-built.”
Ore also told Mirror Online that he was a blubbering mess when Portia, who he married in November 2015, first broke the news to him that she was pregnant with their first child.
“I fell about crying. I sobbed and said, ‘How am I supposed to get on with the rest of my day?’
“There’ll be a river of emotion the moment our baby is born.”
