However, they had to wait a bit longer to welcomed their bundle of joy, as Georgia gave birth nine days passed her due date. The expectant mum even had to go in for a membrane sweep (opens in new tab), in a bid to try to kick start labour.

Ahead of welcoming little Cooper, Danny admitted that he was going to be very emotional in the delivery room and said they were keeping the gender a surprise.

'I think we're having a boy. I'm going to be a mess at the birth – when I find out if we have a son or a daughter, when I meet him or her. I'd love to know but we've decided we want to have that big surprise', he told Hello! magazine.

Congratulations to the new parents!
