"Baby’s brilliant, and he’s got loads of hair… looks like his mum,” he told the hosts, his face lit up with pride.

“I’m good. I like changing nappies, I’ve been weed on three times.

“I like feeding him, winding him, yeah it’s good. I’m finding the sleepless nights difficult, especially if you’ve got to get up for the cameras the next day it’s not easy.

Cooking is clearly a subject close to the couple's hearts, and their love of food even played a part in their 'miracle' conception, according to Gregg.

"We tried for a couple of yearsto have him," he said. "Everybody was saying that we had to relax, and actually we had a month in Italy, we were doing the book and obviously the people that were saying relax were right.

"If you want to conceive, Italian sunshine, loads of pasta, a bottle of red wine!"

Congrats to you both!
