Bernie admitted that with Serena and her uncle Ace only being born months apart, they will no doubt be the best of friends.

He added: "Serena and Ace are very close in age and so will be able to play together when they're a little older. I'm delighted that Serena is with us at last. I’m getting quite the collection of grandkids!"

In a 2017 interview with HELLO!, the couple opened up about their bond with Fifi. "She's got me wrapped around her little finger but I'm a bit stricter than Tamara," Jay shared, while Tamara added: "He's in it for the good times; he's the fun dad.

"He swings her around and puts her on his shoulders and tickles her. But he was never into nappy changes.

"I'm definitely not the strict one. I don't really believe in reprimanding children. I'm like a hippy. I'm so liberal and I don’t believe in the naughty step. She’s got such a personality and I don’t want to curb it. As long as she knows not to hurt people and isn’t aggressive then it’s nice to be spirited."
