Apprentice star James Hill announced that has become a father as his girlfriend Naomi Hibbert gave birth to their first child together on Father's Day.

James, 34, shared the exciting news on Instagram with beautiful pictures of their newborn daughter just hours after Naomi gave birth.

The pair have called their tiny bundle of joy Nola Penelope Rachel Hill and she weighed in at a healthy 6lb 10oz.

The new dad, who fondly nicknamed his daughter Princess, shared his experience as a new parent online as he enjoyed some skin-to-skin bonding with Nola during the first 24 hours.


He wrote: “Today on Father’s Day I received the most precious gift anyone father could ever ask for. A beautiful healthy little baby girl weighing 6lb 10oz.

“Watching this little gentle human being grow from inside my partners tummy over the last nine months has been the most overwhelming experience you could ever imagine and nothing could ever prepare you for it."

He added: "I am so blessed and honoured to share this with you and proud to now call myself a Dad. The admiration and respect I have for the bravery of@naomimargot_and every single women out there who has carried and nurtured a baby is indescribable.”

James, who won Celebrity Big Brother in 2015 continued: “I have made some bad and some good decisions in my life but now every decision I make is not just about me anymore but about my family too and I’m so excited about the journey ahead!”

He shared several shots of his loving partner holding their newborn at the hospital, along with a video of the newborn as she opens her eyes and takes in her surroundings.

As he softly stroked her hand while she lay in her hospital crib, James can be heard softly asking in the background: “Am I your daddy? Am I your daddy? You’re wondering who I am aren’t you?


“I’m the one who has been singing to you for the last six months in the belly. Yeah, it’s me. It’s me that’s been singing to you. And now you’re here.”

Love Island star Joshua Ritchie wrote: “Congrats brother hope all is well and healthy mate,” with a love heart emoji.

Vicky Pattison added: “Omg … congratulations Mr! She’s beautiful.”
