Celebrity Big Brother’s Ben Jardine has confirmed he has become a dad for the first time – as he shared the first glimpse at his newborn daughter.
The 36-year-old, who was one of the contestants on the final series of Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year, revealed to his housemates that he was expecting a child.
And now the former Married at First Sight star has shared the first photo of his daughter, as he confirmed her sweet name.
The picture shows the newborn resting on her father’s chest, with her hand wrapped around her pinky finger.
He captioned the photo:
“Thrilled to announce the arrival of little Siena Grace.#amazing.Mother and daughter both doing well, Dad is head over heels!#buzzing #heresheis.”
Fans flooded the comments underneath the photo with well-wishes and congratulatory messages for the reality TV star.
The news of Sienna’s arrival was first announced last week by radio host Lizzie Cundy.
Speaking during her FUBAR Radio show, she said that Ben had sent her a WhatsApp to let her know his daughter had been born – although she wasn’t sure if she should be sharing the news or not.
“Breaking News. Congratulations Ben Jardine.
“He is a father. Had a little baby girl. I don’t know if he wants me to announce it but I just have.
“Just sent me a WhatsApp message.”
When her co-host asked who the mum is, Lizzie said:
“That…is a good question. Not the one he married in the show, not the one he went out with after, it’s the other one.”
