Jason Manford became a father for the third time over Christmas.
The 29-year-old comedian - who sensationally quit 'The One Show' in November after being caught out exchanging saucy twitter messages with female fans - and his wife Catherine welcomed their third daughter into the world during the festive period, weighing 9lbs 6oz.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Jason and Catherine are delighted with their new arrival. He's back in at the deep end with nuclear nappies and the midnight feed."
However, Jason isn't the only TV star to have welcomed a baby into the world in recent weeks.
According to Hello! magazine, 'EastEnders' actor Neil McDermott - who plays Ryan Malloy in the BBC One soap - and his wife Michelle were "absolutely delighted" to celebrate the arrival of their daughter Arabella Besty on Sunday (09.01.11).
However, the 30-year-old star recently admitted he fully expects his daughter to have him "wrapped around her little finger".
He said: "I can tell I will be wrapped around her little finger, just like Ryan, because being a dad made him become more responsible. My job is mirroring life - they say that happens with soaps."
