I'm A Celeb star reveals wife has given birth to his second child – after cancelling gigs | The Sun
I'M A Celeb star Babatunde Aleshe has revealed he's welcomed his second child into the world with wife Leonie.
The comedian revealed Leonie had given birth in a post on Instagram as he announced he would be postponing his stand-up shows.
Babatunde, 36, said: "Just want to say a big thank you to everyone for your lovely messages and for understanding my decision to reschedule my tour dates.
"My new born daughter is well and my wife is resting. Family first."
Comedian Babatunde tied the knot with childhood sweetheart Leonie in 2015 and they already share a six-year-old son named Judah.
The couple hosted a gender reveal party to share the news they were expecting a second child, and posted photos from the beautiful day on Instagram back in July.
Babatunde and Leonie were surrounded by friends and family in the snaps, as they stood next to a huge sign which read 'Baby Aleshe #2'.
Leonie stunned as she revealed her baby bump in a gorgeous summer dress, and Babatunde looked dapper wearing a green shirt over a white t-shirt.
The TV star captioned the photos: "Gender reveal dump! What a day. We even had sunshine.
"Big up to all family & friends that came and all the gifts we’ve received. We love you all.

The couple revealed they were having a daughter by placing a child's wardrobe next to a huge balloon and flower display.
Babatunde and Leonie then opened the wardrobe and revealed a rail brimming with pink baby clothes and accessories.
In the jungle Babatunde told campmates he and Leonie were friends at school until one day he realised, “Wow, you’re pretty” and their romance blossomed from there.
But it wasn’t all plain sailing, as Leonie recalled: "Our first date was Nandos and I was late and he told me, ‘If you’re late again you’ll get here and I won’t be here.’
"And I kid you not he wasn’t joking."
Despite his blunt warning, Leonie, who runs a travel consultancy business, said they “fell in love within like seven days”.
The comedian was evicted fifth on ITV's I'm A Celebrity in December.
Two years before he was working a desk job while trying to make it as an actor, having enjoyed small roles in EastEnders and The Walking Dead.
Following the jungle, the comedian sold out nine dates of his Babahood tour, and said he hopes to carve out a career as a presenter.
“There is an art and a skill to it and I don’t think I have it,” he said. “So I need to learn or I can learn on the job.”
He continued: “I’m grateful to the British public for embracing me.
