Bradley Walsh has officially welcomed his first ever grandchild, after his daughter Hayley gave birth to a son five months ago.
In a new interview with Saga magazine, The Chase star Bradley confirmed Hayley had welcomed a baby boy with her husband Tom during lockdown.
He explained: "I am a grandfather! My daughter and her husband Tom have had a baby boy who is coming up for five months old."
Dad-of-two Bradley shares 39-year-old Hayley with his ex Debby Parker, and also has a son – fellow actor Barney, 23 – with his wife Donna Derby.
Bradley went on: "It's been tricky as during lockdown no one could get to see their grandchildren. Thank God for FaceTime – it has kept people in touch!"
The cheeky quiz host added: "I'm going to be a brilliant grandfather because I've got this trick: When the baby grows into a toddler, make sure you spend plenty of time feeding them ice cream and Coca-Cola, then give them back and say to your children, ''That's what you were like'!"
Reflexologist Hayley originally announced her pregnancy back in February, when she posted to her Instagram that she was taking maternity leave.
She wrote: "I hope everybody’s safe and well and getting through this lockdown OK.. (GAH!!! it’s been a toughie, eh?…)
"My apologies for the lack of posts recently, finding out we were expecting was just incredible, however being pregnant during this lockdown has been a little tricky at times, so I’ve been spending the last few months frantically trying to learn as much as possible online (thank you @pbbevents) and preparing for the baby’s arrival.
"I’m really missing treating you all and was hoping to have at least a few weeks of relaxed lockdown rules after Christmas to see some of you before I go off on maternity leave end of Feb, which I just don't see happening now, unfortunately.
"A huge thank you to everybody that booked appointments for January and purchased vouchers over Christmas, I’m so sorry I couldn’t see you.
"I’ll be updating this account to let you know when I’ll be back to work so keep your eyes peeled.
"Sending you all a lot of love and will see you very soon! Hayley xx".
Doctor Who star Bradley also paid a sweet tribute to his wife in the interview ahead of their silver wedding anniversary next year, announcing the couple plan to "celebrate big time".
He added that Donna is an "amazing person", and provides "love and stability" for the TV star.
