Gary "Gaz" Beadle has got his unborn baby's heartbeat tattooed on his wrist.
The "Geordie Shore" hunk is due to meet his bundle of joy, whom he is expecting with his girlfriend Emma McVey, early next year, but he decided to get a sweet inking in the meantime as a little tribute to the little one and proudly showed it off on Instagram.
The 29-year-old star uploaded a photograph of the etching, which features an EKG line of his son's heartbeat and half a blue heart, he and accompanied it with the caption: ""Ink. The 1st heart beat I heard from the baby and a blue heart for a boy (sic)."
Gaz announced he and Emma were expecting a little boy last week and admitted he was "buzzing" when he found out the sex because he's always wanted a son.
He said recently: "We're having a boy. For me, obviously, I wanted a boy, so I'm buzzing ... I think he'll be hyper! He'll have lots of energy.
"I've got lots of mates who have little girls, but once they start wanting to wear make up and putting little dresses on, I wouldn't have a clue what I was doing. With a boy at least he'll get to that age where he'll want to do sports and I can dress him properly."
And Gaz thinks he'll be a really "laid-back" dad but will discipline when he needs to and will make sure his child lives a very healthy and active lifestyle.
He explained: "I'll be easy-going, but strict when I've got to be. There was give and take with my mam. I could do anything I wanted to, but I knew that if I got told off that I'd done something wrong. I'm going to be an active dad. When he's two or three, he'll be up in the morning playing football in the park. I can't wait to have a little mate."
