Jimmy Carr has 'revealed that he is a dad during a stand-up show' after he was spotted pushing a pram in London earlier this week.
The comedian, 48, who was also seen pushing a pram with his long-term girlfriend and Channel 5 executive Karoline Copping, 46, in April, is said to have secretly welcomed the child two years ago.
The 8 out of 10 Cats host, who has never confirmed having children with his partner of 20 years, appeared to confirm he had a son during a gig at the O2 Academy in Brixton, south London, according to The Sun.
He told fans: "We’re having a gender-reveal party for our kid but we’re going to wait until he’s 21 just to be sure."
The comic has been in a relationship with Canadian-born commissioning editor Karoline since 2001 after meeting her at an audition.
Jimmy has been photographed pushing a pram on several occasions since January 2020 and was pictured publicly earlier this week for the first time since the death of his co-star Sean Lock who passed away aged 58 last month after a battle with cancer.
OK! has contacted a representative of Jimmy Carr for comment.
It comes after Sean Lock's 8 Out Of 10 Cats co-stars led tributes to the comedian after he sadly passed away in August.
After the tragic news was announced, many of his fellow comedians have spoken out on the star.
Jimmy, who hosts the comedy panel show, tweeted to share his heartbreak over Sean's tragic death.
"Brutal news about Sean Lock today," he tweeted "I loved him. I’m watching clips of him right now – laughing & crying. I’ll miss him so much."
Jon Richardson, who was his rival team captain on the Jimmy Carr-fronted show, wrote on Twitter: "I idolised Sean as a comic long before I became a comedian myself and ten years working alongside him didn’t diminish that in the least. An incredible comic brain and a truly unique voice.
"I'm devastated for his family today and sad for comedy that we have lost one of the very best. Undisputed, undefeated, carrot in a box champion. I will miss him."
Susie Dent, who starred alongside Sean on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, tweeted: "I wish I had the words to describe the exceptional man that was Sean Lock. But today I don't, and I think he might have liked it that way."
Channel 4 tweeted: "Incredibly sad to learn of the loss of one of our greatest comedians, Sean Lock. A much loved part of the C4 family he's played a huge role on the channel for over 2 decades, and we'll miss him. Our thoughts are with his family and friends."
