Meanwhile, the TOWIE hunk told his followers that he is "so, so, so happy" about the news, adding: "Proud of you. I love you" to his girlfriend.

The baby is Dan's second child as he already has a one-year-old son called Teddy with his ex Megan Tomlin. When Jacqueline announced her pregnancy, he said: "Becoming a father has been the most amazing thing to ever happen to me. I can't believe I'm going to be a dad again – I'm truly blessed."

Happily, this time the 23-year-old was able to be at the birth. Megan's labour was so quick – just 45 minutes – that he missed his son's arrival. Dan believes in being a hands on dad and constantly posts adorable pictures of Teddy riding his toy car and sleeping.

He has also been taking good care of Jacqueline and cut back on nights out in the last few months of her pregnancy to be by her side. The duo passed the time in her last trimester playing XBox and even painted her baby bump to look like a Kinder egg.

The 22-year-old, who plays Lauren Branning, took maternity leave from Walford a few months ago. Luckily, for her she stayed on long enough to film scenes in which the killer of Lucy Beale was unmasked. The actress was concerned she'd miss seeing the mystery solved.

"That was one of the main things I was worried about,” she admitted to RadioTimes.com.“I was thinking, 'Perfect timing, child!’ ”

In January Jacqueline did, however, join her cast members making a glamorous appearance at the National Television Awards recently.

Accompanied by her handsome partner, she looked pretty in a long dusky pink gown featuring delicate silver beading. Dan, who starred in raunchy show The Dreamboys, had his arm protectively around his girl. He told reporters: "I am lucky guy".
