Dee captioned the sweet picture: "Welcome to the world baby Koppang O’Leary... We’re delighted to announce that we’ve had a baby! A little boy born on Tuesday 23rd June 2020 (Sankthansaften/Midsummer for us Norwegians) at 8.19 am, weighing in at 6lb 13oz. Enjoying the cuddles in the newborn bubble... cats yet to be 100% convinced. Lots of love, Dee & Dermot."

At the weekend, Dermot shared a hilarious admission about fatherhood while chatting to James Bay on Radio 2. "Every now and again you hear noises and you go, 'What’s that noise?', And then you go, 'Oh, that’s my child!'" he confessed.

The couple are proud new parents to baby Kasper

Dermot went on to describe little Kaspar as "brilliant", and said that he and his wife Dee are "having a great time". The new dad added that they were in "that sort of lovely foggy period of just, kind of sleepless love".

It was Dermot who first revealed their son's name, just a few days after the little boy's birth. Speaking on his BBC radio show, the 47-year-old told listeners: "My lovely son came into the world ten days ago accompanied by Guy Garvey's Elbow. So forgive this moment of brief self-indulgence while we play the song that accompanied that."

Revealing the name, he added: "This is for you Kasper with a K - my wife is very insistent on that. Kasper Koppang O'Leary welcome to the world!"
