Baby joy for GBBO's Dave

Great British Bake Off  contestant Dave Friday has welcomed his first child.

Dave, who is currently still in the pre-recorded baking contest, took to Instagram to reveal that he and girlfriend Stacey are now proud parents to baby son Ronnie.

Sharing a series of photos of the newborn, Dave said: "The wait is finally over!

"We're thrilled to welcome little Ronnie to the world. So excited to start the next chapter of our lives."

There's even a snap of baby Ronnie already holding a whisk - start them early, eh Dave?

Bake Off  host Matt Lucas shared his joy by commenting: "waaaaaaaaah! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!" while fellow contestant Hermine commented: "He is so cute. I want to hold him".


Dave has been seen paying tribute to his family throughout the series.

During week three's Bread Week challenge, he created an impressive baked showstopper dedicated to his "home and little family", which he said he was "grateful" for.

We'll have to see how Dave fare's during tomorrow night's episode, where the contestants will tackle Pastry Week.
