'Strictly Come Dancing' star Brendan Cole has become a dad.
The ballroom dancer and his wife Zoe welcomed their first child into the world, a "precious" baby daughter, on Christmas Day (25.12.12).
The new father expressed his joy on Twitter, writing: "My wonderful wife & I had the best Christmas present ever. Our baby daughter arrived on Christmas Day. Zoe & Baby doing great! Very precious (sic)."
His wife added: "Thanks for all your wonderful messages. We're so thrilled and overwhelmed and so in love with our beautiful baby girl. Can't stop staring!"
New Zealand-born Brendan married the British model in July 2010 after the pair met at a birthday party two years earlier.
The 36-year-old professional dancer - who was previously engaged to co-star Camilla Dallerup - revealed his wife's pregnancy in June when he posted a picture of Zoe showing off her baby bump on Twitter.
He wrote: "Check out my beautiful wife, if you think it looks like she might be glowing then you're right, she is!"
Brendan was partnered with Olympic cycling gold medallist Victoria Pendleton on the latest series of the BBC One dancing competition, which was won by Olympic gymnast Louis Smith.
