Noel Fielding has become a much-loved part of our Tuesday evenings as he welcomes us each week to the Great British Bake Off tent alongside his new sidekick, Alison Hammond

Prior to his time on the Channel 4 show, the presenter was perhaps best known for his comedy work on cult TV show The Mighty Boosh, which aired from 2003 to 2007, and as a panellist on music trivia show Never Mind the Buzzcocks. But away from his successful career, less is known about his personal life. Meet his partner Lliana Bird below...

Do Noel Fielding and his partner have children?

Yes! The couple have two daughters together. In April 2018, Noel and Lliana welcomed their first child, Dali, who is named after Noel's favourite artist Salvador Dali. Their second child, Iggy, arrived in August 2020, with the mum-of-two announcing the happy news on Instagram. 

Lliana posted a photo of four spiders made out of pipe cleaners and different coloured microphone covers which sat on a table in the family's home. She captioned the picture: "The Bird Fielding family of [spider emoji] x x (finally figured out what to do with all my old mic covers!) #halloweencrafts." Lliana wrote in a comment: "Noel is pink, Dali is orange, I'm grey and Iggy is red [heart emojis]."

Shortly after Dali was born, Noel opened up about his experience of fatherhood during an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show. "I don't know how that happened, look at my pointy visage!" he joked. "She is very beautiful and she blows my mind about a hundred times a day.

"It's a new level of tiredness that I've never experienced. I've done a lot of all-nighters in my life. In a way I've been in training for this moment all my life."
