Jack Whitehall and Roxy Horner have revealed that they have had their first child.
Jack, 35, uploaded a photo of himself cradling their baby daughter, as well as a selfie with the entire family.
Alongside the snaps, shared on Instagram, Jack wrote: ‘Well this just happened! Utterly overwhelming and joyous in ways I couldn’t have even imagined.
‘In awe of my partner @roxyhorner who has been amazing throughout this journey and is going to be the greatest mum ever.’
He continued: ‘So excited to have started a family of my own. Having vowed I’d never be that guy I am now 100% going to be the parent that shows everyone endless pictures of their kid.
‘I also wore skechers to hospital, I think I must accept I am a full blown dad now.’
The comedian then concluded the announcement with a joke: ‘Name wise after this weekend I think ‘rice, rice, baby’ has a nice ring to it.’
Roxy also uploaded a selfie from the hospital in which she is cuddling their kid and kissing her on the head.
‘The love of my life,’ the caption simply stated.
An organised Roxy prepared a unique pair of nails for the event. ‘Baby’ was written in pink on the set.
Roxy, 30, and Jack were seen with a baby carrier in tow at the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s hospital in London Tuesday, hinting she may have arrived earlier this week.
The Bad Education star has previously discussed becoming a parent on Steven Bartlett’s Diary of a CEO podcast, saying: ‘I want to do all of it with him [his dad, Michael Whitehall] around and obviously I know that that’s not going to be the case forever.
‘I said I wasn’t going to do this. I’m not getting emotional. I wanted to have a baby because I wanted him to be around to know my child.’
Roxy also revealed what kind of father she hopes Jack will be, saying he’ll be a ‘wonderful dad’ and always have the finest jokes.
‘I know we’ll count on him to constantly make the baby smile and laugh! I hope to be someone our child can always rely on, we just can’t wait for them to be here,’ she said.
