Mario Falcone has become a first time dad, he revealed today in an emotional Instagram post.
The tailor shared a cute snap of his baby boy’s hands with the adorable caption: "Happy to announce the birth of our beautiful little boy PARKER JAX FALCONE. Weighing 7lbs 4oz. Both mummy and baby are fine. He is absolutely perfect!"
The TOWIE star had to postpone his wedding to fiancée Becky after finding out they were expecting their first child.
The couple got engaged last June after one year together, and Becky discovered the happy news that she was pregnant in March while they were sunning it up on holiday in Barbados.
Announcing the news in OK! magazine, Becky said: "We were trying for a baby for a while last year but it wasn’t happening, so we decided to stop for a bit. Then a few months later I fell pregnant!"
Mario added: "We weren’t taking any precautions, but we had stopped trying so obsessively. It was getting quite stressful so we decided we needed to relax a bit.
"But as soon as we went back to just having fun, she fell pregnant!"
He added: "It was a bit of a shock when the test was positive!
"It’s been my dream to be a dad for a long time now, so I’m over the moon."
"We’re so excited to be parents – but we’ve had to postpone the wedding."
Mario and salon owner Becky have known each for ten years but only started dating in the summer of 2016.
