Joe Sugg is loving his new role as Uncle Joe to his sister Zoella's newborn baby. Days after Zoe Sugg and her boyfriend Alfie Deyes welcomed their daughter on 29 August, Joe posted a series of cute photos with his little niece Ottilie Rue Deyes on Instagram, writing: "Ottilie is the cutest little thing!! So excited to be an uncle and take her on fun adventures! (Her socks are too small for sock on the ledge at the moment though.)"

The adorable photos show Ottilie snuggled up sleeping, dressed in baby blue knitted trousers and cosy pink socks holding onto Joe's thumb as he gently stroked her cheek and smiled happily.
Girlfriend Dianne Buswell, a Strictly fan favourite, was quick to comment on Joe's post with hearts and kisses, affectionately adding, "You look so good with her – she is so lucky to have you as an uncle."

It sounds like anything is possible for this romantic pair as Dianne added: "I'm looking forward to 2021, I try to always have an open mind and love the start of a new year."
