Goggleboxs Pete Sandiford shares rare snap of newborn son and unveils his name

Gogglebox's Pete posted a picture showing the proud dad posing with his newborn, cracking a cheesy grin for the camera whilst wearing an orange and black polo shirt.

Stood in the bathroom holding his son, his son looked up at him with a distraught look on his face whilst sporting an adorable lion onesie complete with mane and a cartoon face.

As Pete finally shared the name of his son with his followers, he captioned the post: "Jimmy wishing his daddy a happy birthday."

Pete was met with thousands of likes as he hit upwards of 42,000 while his friends and followers shared well-wishes for his birthday, but others couldn't help but chuckle at the snap.


One fan joked: “I wonder what Jimmy is thinking, he looks furious in those eyes.”

While comedian – and Pete's uncle – Paul Chuckle said: "Fancy frightening little Jimmy on your birthday… happy birthday mate have a good 'un!"

The couch dweller married his partner after baby Paige arrived. At the National Television Awards, he proudly showed off his ring and told OK! magazine: "I'm married now! It was nerve-wracking but the best day of my life. Well, second-best day as I'm a dad now, too.”

"I'm buzzing [to be at the NTAs] as I got a full night's sleep in a hotel so I'm well happy," he added, before adding: "[Being a dad is] tiring.

"The lack of sleep is not cool but it's definitely worth it! He's basically a miniature version of me and Paige and that's what I always wanted so I feel well lucky."

When he’s not on Gogglebox, Pete works in the insurance industry.

Pete revealed he was becoming a dad on Gogglebox and spoke at the NTA’s in September about the happy news: "It's a bit overwhelming, got it all going on at the moment! He's cool little lad, takes after his mum not me!".

During the show he showed his sister a picture of the baby scan: "Here we go, look at this,” Pete said, before admitting he couldn’t believe he was going to be a father. As Sophie looked at the pictures, Pete said: "Innit mad? I am actually going to be a dad to somebody."

Sophie then responded: "Crazy. Life’s coming at you fast," referring to the couple's recent engagement.

After Pete shared the news on Instagram his uncle Paul Chuckle from The Chuckle Brothers commented: “A very pretty baby mate…congratulations to you and Paige, fantastic news #greatgreatunclepaul xx”.
