Piers Morgan, the Britain’s Got Talent judge and now US chat show host, has become a dad again.
He cheerfully announced the arrival of his daughter on Twitter, “I’ve become a dad for the 4th time, to a baby girl called Elise. She’s absurdly beautiful, and utterly adorable.”
This is his fourth child – he already has three sons from his first marriage. Elise is his first child for Piers and his wife, journalist Celia Walden whom he married last summer.
A lively Tweeter, Piers has been inundated with messages from his celeb friends, including Apprentice boss, Lord Sugar, who sent his congratulations and then added, “The poor girl doesn’t know what she’s in for with you as a father!”
Piers has already asked Arsenal player and dad-of-one Jack Wilshere for nappy changing advice, admitting he’s a bit out of practice. He also joked that he wanted to call the baby Robin, after his favourite Arsenal player, Robin van Persie, but was talked out of it.
Writer Tony Parsons had the best welcome line for baby Elise, tweeting “Congratulations to Celia and Piers Morgan on their birth of their baby girl – may she have her mother’s looks and her father’s luck.”
