Comedian Dapper Laughs is reportedly expecting a baby with his long-term girlfriend Shelley Rae.
The controversial celebrity Daniel O’Reilly, 32, is set to become a dad for the first time according to his friend, Geordie Shore star, Gary Beadle.
In his column for the Daily Star, Gary said: “Dapper Laughs is having a baby with his long-term girlfriend. Really. It’s true.”
“He wasn’t even trapped. Gave up the semen of his own free will. From lad to dad.”
Neither O’Reilly or Rae, who live together in Clapham, South London, have officially confirmed the news, instead posting Snapchat videos of them partying in Ibiza.
Fans have started asking questions of 25-year-old Rae, on her Instagram page: “He [O’Reilly] better be home looking after his foxy baby momma.”
O’Reilly has not previously spoken about fatherhood, but did tell the Daily Mail that he was not the persona he portrayed in his videos: “At first I took it as a compliment that people couldn’t tell the difference between the character and me as a person – I thought that meant I was doing my job well.
“But in the end that was the problem.”
O’Reilly’s career has been surrounded by controversy ever since he rose to fame, due to his sexist jokes and pranks.
His ITV2 show ‘Dapper Laughs On The Pull’ was axed after a petition with 53,000 signatures and he appeared on Newsnight to apologise for his antics before reviving the character two weeks later.
