Just like his sister, Casey has a huge YouTube following. He is also a doting father to two-year-old daughter Harlow, whom he shares with girlfriend Nicole. After welcoming their second child, the mum-of-two said: "Right, so I was ready and set to do a 'happy due date we're so excited to meet you whenever you're ready' kind of post today, but this little man had other plans and decided to show up right on his due date!!!"

"Perfect timing, my whole world has completely changed all over again, and I am the proudest mummy of the most gorgeous little girl and little BOY," she added. "If only you could understand how much I love you already, when you have a first born you always have that little fear in the back of your head, 'how will I ever be able to love someone as much as I love you?' But as soon as you were placed on my chest I just knew there was nothing to be afraid of and that I'm just as in love and my heart couldn't be more filled with love.

"I am forever grateful for my healthy little family, and for being so blessed! I cannot wait to grow up with these two and create amazing memories together so grateful for having Case next to me, reassuring that I would be ok even when the contractions were coming every minute and last but not least thank YOU everyone for always being so supportive and for being a part of our journey, this is just the beginning!"
