St Helens funnyman Johnny Vegas has announced that he has become a father for a second time.
The comic’s wife Maia Dunphy gave birth to a baby boy last week.
Vegas broke the news online to fans via Twitter.
He wrote: “He’s got his Mother’s eyes & my taste in footwear. Tom Laurence, born last Friday, 7lb 2 ounces of nonstop pooing.”
Maia also took to Twitter to announce the new addition to their family.
Posting the same picture as hubby Johnny, she wrote: “Our new man has his Dad’s habits already.
“Tom Laurence arrived last Friday, at a civilised hour after lunch. 7lbs2.”
Johnny, who hails from Thatto Heath and still spends much of his time in the town, has an 11-year-old son from a previous relationship.
He also thanked the London hospital where baby Tom was born.
He said: “Huge thanks to the incredible maternity team at @KingstonHospNHS. Mother and child couldn’t have been in more dedicated, caring hands.”
