Little Kasper arrived in 23 June, weighing 6lbs 13oz. Dermot recently opened up about his early experience of fatherhood during an interview with 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 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."
