He reportedly announced it on stage during a stand-up routine in Notthingham over the weekend.

"He was conscious of the clock and made sure he was off stage by just approaching 9 p.m. as he told the crowd he 'needed to get down the f*cking m21 as my girlfriend just had a baby'" a fan confirmed who was at the show.

The couple have been together since 2015, but have dated on and off since 2007.
