‘I also wore skechers to hospital, I think I must accept I am a full blown dad now.’

The comedian then concluded the announcement with a joke: ‘Name wise after this weekend I think ‘rice, rice, baby’ has a nice ring to it.’

The caption simply read: ‘The love of my life’.

For the occasion, an organised Roxy got a special set of nails for the arrival. The pink set spelled out ‘baby’.
