GOGGLEBOX fans got excited this evening when Pete Sandiford introduced his newborn son to the world at the launch of the adorable series.
Tonight the hit show’s much-anticipated return begins with Pete cradling his baby on the couch, his sister Sophie lovingly watching her nephew.
The bundle of joy was dressed in blue, with Pete always the doting father as he craved and caressed his son.
However, the sweet moment was interrupted when the kid passed air – with Pete saying he would be “s***ed”.
The harsh interruption wasn’t enough to deter viewers from watching the cute scene, and they took to social media to react.
One wrote: “Omg Pete and his baby my heart!!!”
Another added: “Oh Pete dude! What a great start to a new #Gogglebox series. Your guy is a smasher.”
A third wrote: “Cute way to start Gogglebox after Pete and his kid lost some regular people.”
Another tweeted: “Wait, shut up first few seconds and my heart is already melting over Pete’s baby.”
Pete confirmed he would welcome his son at the National Television Awards earlier this month, sharing at the time: “I’m a proud dad. He’s a good boy. Takes after his mother. I train here I slept, I’m so tired.”
His sister Sophie said: “I’m a very proud Auntie. I’m obsessed with her. I just keep saying can I hold her, can I feed her?”
And it was later revealed that he had secretly married fiancee Paige in an intimate ceremony before the birth.
They told Ok Magazine: “I’m married now! It was nerve-wracking but the best day of my life. Well, the second best day because I’m still a dad.”
