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."

The rest of the family are still thick as thieves, as Scarlett's recent tribute to her dad Mark proves. After Scarlett gained celeb status, the whole family were axed, leaving Scarlett gutted – but they're certainly enjoying her celeb status, with "secret" little sister Ava making pals with Joe Swash's son Harry, and glitzy parties galore.

However, things eventually turned pretty sour between the two, and earlier this year Chris gave an interview with The Mirror where he claimed Stephen had "bullied" him off the show."A year on, I've finally had the courage to stand up to a bully and start to tell the story of how @Stephenwebb71 forced of off @C4Gogglebox and how it's affected my mental health since," he tweeted, adding that he'd received no mental health aftercare, which is an "industry-wide failing".He's found his happy ever after, though, wit a new husband.
