Gaz Beadle from Geordie Shore is officially a father!

Geordie Shore's Gaz Beadle is celebrating becoming a first time father after Emma McVey has given birth to a healthy baby boy weighing in at 6lbs 2.

He took to Instagram to announce the news saying that he "cried, smiled, and panicked" during the entire delivery - but that he and Emma have since been rewarded with the best gift of all time.

"WOW what a feeling no words can describe it meet our son 😍👶🏼💙 he is perfect in every way and healthy weighing 6lbs 2 @emma_jane1392 is fine and did amazing... I am a dad can’t believe it... I cried I smiled I panicked but I will be there for him no matter what 🙏🏻 xxx" Gaz announced. 

Fans and friends wished the couple all the best - with Sophie Kasaei, Charlotte Crosby, and Jordan Davies all sending messages of congratulations over Twitter.

"Awww Gary this is a surreal moment proud of you well done [❤️]" Sophie wrote, as Charlotte replied to the thread with her own message of support: "Congratulations to you both @GazGShore @Emma_mcvey_ [👶🏼]." 

The couple are yet to reveal the name of their son - but previously hinted that they'd be opting for something more "unsual" and unique than their original "traditional" choice.
