The sweet snapshot comes after Joe spoke candidly about his relationship with Harry, his only child with ex-fiancée Emma Sophocleous. Reflecting on fatherhood on Dave Berry's Dadpod on Thursday, Joe said: "With my first child, Harry, there was a period where mine and Harry's mum's relationship affected my relationship with him.

"I didn't get to see him for a period of time, so I missed out on quite a lot. Now, me and my son Hal, we spent all the time together.

"He's, like, my shadow. I love him, but there was a period where I just couldn't see this happening in the future. So, I did miss out quite a lot of Hal growing up, as a baby."

Joe, 38, is a father of two boys: Harry, 13, and one-year-old Rex, who he shares with Stacey. Stacey, meanwhile, is also a mum to 12-year-old Zachary and Leighton, eight.

It seems Joe has plans to expand their family further, admitting to new magazine that he is feeling "broody". "I'd like to add one more to our brood," he confessed. "It wouldn't hurt. But it's not all my decision. Stacey's got to be on board with it as well. You never know.

"It would be nice to have a girl but we've had such an amazing time bringing up our boys that it really wouldn't matter to us if it was a boy or a girl.

"It's just these kids grow up so fast. Even Rex grew out of that baby phase so fast and now he's running around like a toddler. You do get a bit broody and think, 'Aaaah I want a baby back.'"
