Gregg Wallace tears up on live TV as he says he feels like an ‘old dad’ to newborn baby Sid following emotional OK! reveal

Masterchef star Gregg Wallace got incredibly emotional during an appearance on Loose Women, where he discussed his newborn baby Sid.

The 54 year old – who welcomed his son with wife Anna on April 29 at London’s Portland Hospital – had opened up about how emotional he felt being an "older dad" to his newborn baby Sid in this week's OK! magazine, and reiterated the point during his appearance on the ITV show this morning.

When talking to the Loose Women about baby Sid, he recalled what his eldest son (Gregg already has children Tom, 25, and Libby, 22, from a previous relationship) said to him the day he was born.

“You know I was a single dad, I brought my two children up on their own," he said. "They’re now 25 and 22, and they were at the hospital when their little brother was born.

“My son said: ‘He’s a lucky boy’, and I said: ‘But his dad’s old’.”

Beginning to get emotional, Gregg fought back the tears and said: “My son said, ‘It’s alright dad. He’s got me'.”

He was met with a huge round of applause from the audience, as he smiled proudly in front of the cheering crowd.

In an exclusive interview with OK! magazine, Gregg also revealed that he was scared for both Anna and baby Sid during the birth – almost breaking down during the interview.

He said: “I was far more scared this time than when I had Tom and Libby.

“I don’t know if it’s because it took us so long to conceive or perhaps it’s because I’m older, but I was scared for their health. I could have hugged the doctors."

Gregg went on to describe seeing his son take his first breath as he said: “I went down the business end and watched the doctors pull Sid out.

"I saw him take his first breath, it was just beautiful. I looked at him and thought he was perfect."
