Joe, 39, shared a sweet snapshot showing Harry sat at a table in a fast-food restaurant and beaming for the camera. "I can't believe how big my little boy's got!" he wrote. "But he's grown into such a handsome young man."

"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 spend 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."
