Noel Fielding might treat the bakers of The Great British Bake Off like his children (and we love him for it!) but did you know that the 45-year-old presenter recently welcomed his first child? Noel and his girlfriend, Radio X DJ Lliana Bird, welcomed a baby girl earlier this year, but kept the exciting news private. Find out everything we know about Noel as a new dad…
Noel and his partner Lliana welcomed a baby girl earlier this year
Noel and Lliana are thought to have welcomed their baby girl in early April, and according to The Sun, the proud parents have named their daughter 'Dali', after the artist Salvador Dali. Noel opened up about his baby girl in a rare interview on The Jonathan Ross Show, saying: "I don't know how that happened, look at my pointy visage. She is very beautiful and she blows my mind about a hundred times a day. It's a new level of tiredness that I've never experienced. I've done a lot of all-nighters in my life. In a way I've been in training for this moment all my life."

A friend of the star, Serge Pizzorno, confirmed that Lliana and Noel were about to become parents back in March, just one month before the Radio DJ gave birth, telling the Mirror: "He's going to be the best dad. It's going to be amazing. I can't wait." Lliana announced that she was taking a break from her podcast, Get It Off Your Breasts, by saying that she was taking "a wee time out". Lliana is also known as 'Birdy' and is the co-founder of charities The Kindly Collective and Help the Refugees. She can be spotted in two episodes of Noel's popular show, The Mighty Boosh, as well as his Luxury Comedy series. The family live in Highgate, north London.
