Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo’s baby boy has arrived.


Banjo has become a dad for the first time, after his girlfriend Naomi Courts gave birth earlier this week.


The pair decided to name the tiny tot, Cassius.

Cassius is also Jordan’s brother, Ashley’s middle name. Reportedly, the newborn’s name was chosen to honour the Diversity frontman.


The couple shared their happy news with the world but did not divulge his birth immediately, as they wanted to enjoy a beautiful moment as a family.

The Dancing On Ice star revealed the birth by tweeting a sweet black and white snap of himself carrying the newborn of the hospital in his car seat.


The picture was accompanied by a note which broke the baby news and honoured his girlfriend.



The message read:


"Myself and @naomiella21 haven't shared this straight away because we wanted to take some time to appreciate and enjoy the beautiful moment that we had as a family...


"But on the 07.05.2018 at 12.29am our beautiful son was born. Words cannot describe the feeling of seeing your future come into this world.


I'm so proud of mum & baby, both are doing absolutely amazing and @naomiella21 you are a superwoman. If I didn't know it before, I do now, I am the luckiest man there is."


"Welcome to the world Cassius Ashley Banjo."

The I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! contestant and Naomi have been inundated with messages of congratulations.


Earlier this year, the couple announced the pregnancy and thanked everyone for their support and well wishes.  



The pregnancy seemed like a bit of a shock for the new mum who explained to OK! Magazine that it took nine pregnancy tests for it to hit home, that she was in fact pregnant.


Naomi said: “I wanted to be sure so I went out and bought eight more tests.


I sat with them all laid out in front of me on the bathroom floor, staring at them in disbelief."
