Dec Donnelly has become a dad for the first time – and he cant wipe the smile off his face.
The 42-year-old told fans he is head over heels after his wife Ali Astall gave birth to their daughter Isla Elizabeth Anne on Saturday.
And as Dec returned to his London home to pick up a few things, he couldnt have looked happier.
The Im A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! host was beaming from ear to ear as he waved at the waiting photographers – not the usual reaction you expect for the paps.
Dec was dressed in jeans a black bomber jacket and had a leather weekend bag slung over his shoulder.
He was seen giving a cheeky smile from behind the walls of his home before disappearing inside.
Dec announced the happy news that he and Ali were parents via a tweet on Saturday showing little Isla holding his finger.
Ali and I are thrilled to announce the arrival of our baby girl, Isla Elizabeth Anne, who was born just after 9 oclock this morning. Mother and daughter both doing well, Dad is head over heels! D x pic.twitter.com/LZ409o6kYK

The star, who has split from his wife Lisa Armstrong and is dating former personal assistant Anne-Marie Corbett, was pictured visiting the hospital where Ali was staying, and is said to be besotted with Isla.
Dec will be jetting to Australia in November to present Im A Celeb with Holly Willoughby – who is replacing Ant while he works on his recovery – but that doesnt mean hell be missing any big moments.
Isla and Ali will be joining Daddy Dec down under, with Holly also bringing her three children to Australia.
