Jake Whitehall has shared his first snaps of his newborn daughter on social media.

On Wednesday (September 6), Jake uploaded the series of snaps, including one of him cradling his baby, and teased his followers.

Jack wrote: “Well this just happened! Utterly overwhelming and joyous in ways I couldn’t have even imagined. In awe of my partner @roxyhorner who has been amazing throughout this journey and is going to be the greatest mum ever.”

“So excited to have started a family of my own. Having vowed I’d never be that guy I am now 100% going to be the parent that shows everyone endless pictures of their kid. I also wore skechers to hospital, I think I must accept I am a full blown dad now.”

The couple are yet to reveal her name but Jack did tease his fans that she could be named after a football icon.

After Arsenal footballer Declan Rice scored for Arsenal in a match against Manchester United last week, Jack said: “Name wise after this weekend I think ‘rice, rice, baby’ has a nice ring to it.”

Friends and fans of the star's flocked to the comment section to show their adoration for their new arrival.

One wrote: "Congratulations to you both".

A second added: "Awww amazing! Huge congratulations."

While a third penned: "Can't wait for all the embarrassing things you'll be saying in stand-up in the years to come."

Last week, Jack took to Instagram to promote his stand-up tour with a video of him sharing where and when he's performing.

He captioned the clip: "It really is starting to look like I’m attempting to settle down at glacial pace. That aside, I can’t think of a better way to end this incredible tour than a night at the @ovoarena. One of my favourite venues.

"Tickets are on presale now, via my website. And, on general sale tomorrow from 10am. The presale is one of those incredibly badly kept secrets, you just need to go to my website and click the link #linkinbio"
