Gogglebox star Pete Sandiford become a dad last September when his now-wife Paige Yeomans gave birth to a baby boy.

Pete casually announced he was going to become a father back in April 2021 in a sweet scene on the Channel 4 show with his sister Sophie when he showed her a baby scan photo. After Sophie asked whether the baby might look like their family, Pete jokingly replied, "No, it’s going to be good looking. Hopefully it looks like Paige. Innit mad? I am actually going to be a dad to somebody."

And at while appearing on the red carpet at the National Television Awards in September, Pete let slip that his son had arrived as he opened up about life as a new dad.

He told the Mirror, "It's a bit overwhelming, got it all going on at the moment!"

Revealing the gender of the newborn, he continued, "He's a cool little lad, takes after his mum not me!"

He added, "I’ve been up all night, I slept on the train here - got suitcases under my eyes, you just got me at a good time now."
