When it came to being involved in the birth of his new son, Tom Fletcher went that extra mile. The singer took to twitter to reveal that after Buddy Bob made his entrance on Tuesday, Tom was in charge of the all-important task of cutting the umbilical chord.
"Gutted I missed out on cutting @CarrieHFletcher’s hair off for charity. Proud of my lil sis! Was busy cutting the umbilical chord instead!," he said.
Tom's sister, Carrie Fletcher cut 7-12 inches of hair off to donate to The Little Princess Trust. So far, she has raised nearly £10,000.
Tom and wife Giovanna have no doubt been busy since the arrival of 'Player 2', as they have been referring to their baby during the pregnancy, and have already had a visit from Tom's mum Debbie who claimed her new grandson is "absolutely gorgeous". The happy grandmother also praised big brother Buzz for being so patient while waiting for the arrival of his new brother.
"What a day. My brand new grandson Buddy is absolutely gorgeous and Buzz was such a good boy waiting for his arrival ...," she said.
Although clearly over the moon at the arrival of baby Buddy, it seems that Tom didn't have much time to eat during the excitement of the last 24 hours. He was so relieved to finally have some grub he cheekily shared a snap of a slice of pizza on Instagram writing: "Needed this. SO. BAD!"
The couple announced the arrival of their second child yesterday, with the HELLO! Online blogger and author Giovanna sharing a picture of a beautiful clear sky on Instagram with the caption: "What a beautiful day to be born... Welcome to the world Buddy Bob Fletcher", while Tom simply tweeted: "Player 2 has entered the game."
He then sent a follow up tweet to thank everyone for their congratulations, describing that he was "overwhelmed with love" for the newest McBusted baby.
Although the couple have yet to share a picture of their newborn, Tom shared a picture of Buzz trying out their new pushchair on Instagram with the caption: "Test driving our new @bugaboohq donkey...The Snowman is currently standing in for player 2," while Giovanna has kept her fans up-to-date with her pregnancy process, with her final blog post before the birth of Buddy reading: "With Buzz around, I don't think our house will have quite the same relaxed atmosphere when Sprout arrives!"
