Words cannot describe the feeling of seeing your future come into this world. I'm so proud of mum & baby, both are doing absolutely amazing and @naomiella21 you are a super woman. If I didn't know it before, I do now, I am the luckiest man there is. Welcome to the world Cassius Ashley Banjo (sic)"

"I have all the boys around me and my brothers, I'm just buzzing for it."

The couple announced Naomi was expecting a baby boy in January, and she admitted it was a shock when she found out she was pregnant.

She said: "We weren't trying so I was sure it was going to be negative. I wanted to be sure so I went out and bought eight more tests. I sat with them all laid out in front of me on the bathroom floor, staring at them in disbelief. We always said we wanted kids together, we just didn't think it would happen this soon. We're over the moon, though.

"I started crying when they said it was a boy because I was completely convinced we were having a girl. I was delighted it was a boy but I felt very overwhelmed, as I'd mentally prepared myself for it to be a daughter."
