Former X Factor star and Celebrity Big Brother housemate Frankie Cocozza has confirmed the birth of his first child.

The singer and his wife Bianca confirmed that they were expecting their first child together back in October 2018 by posting sonogram photos to social media. The couple married last May in his home city of Brighton.

Uploading an image of himself holding his new son in the hospital today (May 11), the singer wrote: "You're in for one hell of a ride son. You'll be absolutely fine because you're half your mother. @biancacocozza."

Frankie's followers have taken to Instagram to congratulate the 26-year-old, with one responding: "Love this Frankie boy! Huge congratulations to you and Bianca. What a wonderful life you've created. Lots of love man xx‬."

Another fan shared: "Congratulations!!!!!!!!!."

Frankie now leads a band called The Telescreen, and it looks like he's really turned his life around after experiencing some darker times post-X Factor.

Reflecting on his past behaviour, he previously said to The Mirror: "Me and my mates just turned up at clubs all over the country afterwards and had loads of free booze poured down our necks and an army of girls trying to get in to sit with us.

"It has been a bit dark at times, but I'm controlled," he continued. "It never got to a stage where I need help."

Congrats to the new parents!
