en Jardine has become a father for the first time.

The "Celebrity Big Brother" star - who is still married to Stephanie Saint Remy, who he wed after they met on "Married at First Sight" - is a dad after his ex Silvia Sanchis gave birth to a baby girl.

Announcing the news on her FUBAR Radio show, the 36-year-old star's pal Lizzie Cundy said: "Breaking News. Congratulations Ben Jardine.

"He is a father. Had a little baby girl. I don't know if he wants me to announce it but I just have.

"Just sent me a WhatsApp message."

Lizzie's co-host Stephen Leng then asked who the mother is, and she explained: "That ... is a good question. Not the one he married in the show, not the one he went out with after, it's the other one."

Ben confirmed in August - eight months after his split form Stephanie, which came just weeks after their marriage - that he was to be a dad, and admitted he will "forever protect and be grateful" for his child.

He said at the time: "They say "God loves to turn purposeless chaos into something beautiful" and He (or She!) really has in my life!

"I have been blessed. Out of all the chaos of this past year something beautiful has happened, which I will forever protect and be grateful for.

"I never thought it would happen to me. Everything happens for a reason.

"It's going to make a man out of me and I'll be a great dad."

Ben got close to Roxanne Pallet during their time on "Celebrity Big Brother" this summer, but he later admitted he had been "mugged off" by the former "Emmerdale" star after seeing footage of her play fight with Ryan Thomas, who she had falsely accused of punching her.

Roxanne later claimed in her "CBB" exit interview she was the "most hated girl in Britain", and in September Ben urged people to "leave her be".

He said: "I think everyone now should just get on with it. She's been punished, bless her, leave her be."
