Dan Osborne's newborn daughter Ella made her TV debut on Sunday night's episode of TOWIE. The tiny two-week-old baby was seen on screen for the first time as her proud dad Dan showed her off to his friends on the hit reality show.
Dan and his girlfriend, EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa, welcomed their little girl together on 15 February. Dan, 23, is also a father to a one-year-old son named Teddy.

He beamed with pride as he gently cradled Ella in his arms. "She looks exactly like her mum," he told pals James Lock and Danielle Armstrong, as they cooed over the new arrival.
Dan is quite clearly smitten with his new daughter. Shortly after her arrival, he had Ella's name tattooed on his ribs, underneath a similar design that pays tribute to Teddy – whose mother is his former girlfriend, primary school teacher Megan Tomlin.

First-time mum Jacqueline, 22, joined him for the trip to the tattoo parlour, and is a big fan of his new ink. "Currently in @inkwetrusttattoo watching @danosborneofficial get his tattoo!! Ouch!! LOVE IT!!" she wrote next to a photo of her boyfriend getting his tattoo.
Since then, Dan has had another design added to his collection of body art – in honour of Jacqueline. On 1 March, he shared a photo on Instagram of a letter J and a small heart tattooed onto his wrist. "Love my J tattoo for my gorgeous Girlfriend/Best Friend @jacjossa. Thank you @tattoo_mart done a great job!!"

"Becoming a father has been the most amazing thing to ever happen to me," he said. "I can't believe I'm going to be a dad again – I'm truly blessed."
