GBBO star Dave Friday becomes father for first time as he welcomes son Ronnie

The Great British Bake Off star Dave Friday has become a father for the first time with his girlfriend, Stacey.

The 30-year-old – who is a contestant on the current series – introduced his son, baby Ronnie, to the world with a series of cute Instagram posts on Thursday.

The Hampshire-based armoured guard and his long-term partner looked ecstatic as they cradled their newborn.

Dave wrote: ‘The wait is finally over! We’re thrilled to welcome little Ronnie to the world. So excited to start the next chapter of our lives.

‘@britishbakeoff#gbbo#bakeoffbaby#baby#newdad#newborn.’

New Bake Off host Matt Lucas was one of the hordes of fans showing their appreciation for Dave’s post, commenting: ‘Waaaaaaaaah! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!’



And it looks like baby Ronnie has already got his dad’s knack for baking as he posed with a whisk (!) in one of the photos, while rocking an animal-print babygro.

Dave also shared a sweet snap of Ronnie swathed in blankets, watching the latest episode of GBBO, which he captioned: ‘Just catching up on Bake Off.’

Dave and Stacey’s dog Yooki looks to be a huge fan of the new addition to the Friday household too, as he snuggled up to Ronnie and watched protectively over the newborn in a clip so pure that it’s making our eyes leak.

The budding baker announced that Stacey was pregnant with a sweet black and white snap of him kissing her baby bump in September.

He simply captioned the post, ‘My world,’ alongside a slew of heart emojis.

Dave is currently competing to take the Bake Off crown in this year’s series, which was pre-recorded in accordance with coronavirus guidelines and recently broke records by becoming Channel 4’s most-watched show since 1985.

Ahead of his appearance on the show, he said: ‘My strengths are the ability to learn from mistakes, take criticism and use it to improve. I am incredibly determined and see the positive in every situation. 

‘Weaknesses would be feeling overwhelmed when mess builds up and struggling with some baking jargon. And French words!’
