Johnny Vegas welcomes new baby with brilliant first photo


It's a boy Johnny Vegas and his TV presenter wife Maia Dunphy!

Irish broadcaster Maia welcomed her new arrival four days ago, but took some time to adjust to life as a new mum before revealing the happy news on social media… and posting a brilliant photo update. 

"Our new man has his Dad's habits already," she wrote, sharing a photo of a pair of baby Converse booties next to two adult pairs. "Tom Laurence arrived last Friday, at a civilised hour after lunch. 7lbs2." 

Johnny also celebrated the news on Twitter with a few trademark jokes, saying, "He's got his Mother's eyes & my taste in footwear" and referring to his newborn son as "7lb 2 ounces of nonstop pooing."

Journalist Maia also revealed she wouldn't be welcoming any "post baby-body" queries adding that anyone to mention the term would get "a slap." Good woman Maia.

The couple announced they were expecting their first child back in January, sharing a picture of their first scan with a pint of Guinness resting on its belly:

Thanking fans for their support today, Moone Boy star Johnny took to social media again to say, "Overwhelmed by your lovely response to our new arrival Twitter, thanks so much everyone. Will do my best to read through all your messages x"

We can't wait to see the first photo of little Tom.
