Gogglebox's George Gilbey Announces He's Going To Be A Dad

Gogglebox and former Celebrity Big Brother star George Gilbey has revealed he is set to become a dad for the first time.

The reality star, 31, announced his girlfriend Gemma is due to give birth to a baby girl in June this year.

"I'm ecstatic. I am so, so excited," he told Heat magazine. "We had the 20 week scan the other day and it felt so real.

"It was amazing when we found out we were having a girl."

Gilby didn't discuss whether his baby girl will be making a future appearance on Gogglebox, but said he was excited about what's to come.

"I know it’s going to totally change my life and I can’t wait," he added.

"Can you believe it? I’m going back on Gogglebox and I’m going to be a dad!"

Gilbey, who appeared on the Channel 4 show with his mum Linda and her husband Pete, left Gogglebox to join the Celebrity Big Brother line-up in 2014.

However, the family announced they're set to make a comeback to Gogglebox, a year-and-a-half after their last appearance.

The new series of ‘Gogglebox’ launches on Friday 19 February at 9pm on Channel 4.
