Great British Bake Off co-host Noel Fielding, 44, is expecting his first child with girlfriend Lliana Bird.
Kasabian guitarist Serge Pizzorno is said to have confirmed that his good friend will become a father for the first time.
According to The Mirror, the 37-year-old said: “He’s going to be the best dad, it’s going to be amazing. I can’t wait.”
Lliana, 36, first sparked speculation that she could be pregnant back in January, after she appeared to reveal a baby bump while stepping out in London.
The Radio X presenter appeared to confirm the news on Instagram yesterday, as she showed off a visible bump while boxing, while adding the hashtags: “#preggoboxing #badassbumps.”
Fans were quick to congratulate the couple, who got together back in 2010, on the good news, with one writing: “Congrats!! You and Noel are going to be such amazing parents.”(sic)
While another wrote: “What joyful news Lliana.”
A third follower penned: “Baby Fielding! Congratulations to you and Noel!”
In the past, former Bake Off presenter Sue Perkins spoke out about the controversial “Bingate” incident.
Sharing her thoughts on the Alan Carr: Chatty Man show, she stated: “I think she [Diane] didn’t take it out for very long, and she never means to do wrong.
“It’s an unfortunate manner she had, but she’s a really good egg.”
The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer airs on March 6 on Channel 4.
