Dermot O’Leary has announced the name of his newborn son as he gave a shoutout to the little one on his BBC 2 Radio Show today.
The presenter returned to the airwaves after becoming a first time dad when his wife Dee Koppang, 41, gave birth ten days ago.
“My lovely son came into the world ten days ago accompanied by Guy Garvey’s Elbow,” said Dermot, sharing with listeners the soundtrack to Dee’s labour.
“So forgive this moment of brief self-indulge while we play the song that accompanied that.
“So this is for you Kasper with a K – my wife is very insistent on that,” laughed Dermot.
“Kasper Koppang O’Leary welcome to the world” cried the proud dad before pressing play on Elbow’s hit One Day Like This.
Dermot also paid tribute to his boy at the star of the show as he opened with The Beatles I’m Only Sleeping and quipped he would be napping between songs owing to his sleepless nights.
Dermot and TV producer Dee welcomed their first child on June 23.
The couple married in 2012 after ten years together.
They revealed they’d become parents with an Instagram snap of a white baby onesie alongside the message: “Koppang O’Leary productions Est 2020.”
Dermot captioned the announcement: “Welcome to the world baby Koppang O’Leary… We’re delighted to announce that we’ve had a baby!
“A little boy born on Tuesday 23rd June 2020 (Sankthansaften / Midsummer for you Norwegians) at 8.19am, weighing in at 6lb 13oz.
“Enjoying the cuddles in the newborn bubble… cats yet to be 100% convinced. Lots of love, Dermot & Dee x.'”
