Earlier this month, the star's kids treated him to a homemade cake for his second lockdown birthday.

The presenter, who has fronted the BBC morning show for six years, also enjoyed a large Yorkshire pudding and gravy with chips – delicious!

The 44-year-old and his wife Sarah Walker tied the knot back in 2001 and share three children: Joe and daughters Susanna and Jessica.

The star's son also recently showcased his culinary talent

The couple met while studying at the University of Sheffield, where Dan graduated with a Masters degree in broadcast journalism in 1999.

The family moved back to the Yorkshire city four years ago, with the broadcaster opening up about the reason for the decision in an interview with MailOnline.

Speaking to the publication in 2018, Dan said: "My wife Sarah and I moved to Sheffield last year because it's played a big part in our lives – we both studied here and it's where I began broadcasting."
