“My lovely son came into the world 10 days ago accompanied by Guy Garvey’s Elbow,” Dermot said.

He added: “So forgive this moment of brief self-indulge while we play the song that accompanied that.”

Reaveling the baby’s name he said: “So this is for you Kasper with a K – my wife is very insistent on that!

“Kasper Koppang O’Leary welcome to the world.” He then played Elbow’s hit One Day Like This. Aw!

The radio host also joked about sleepless nights. Playing The Beatles hit I’m Only Sleeping he said needed to nap between songs.

Dermot announces baby news

The presenter initially announced the news of Dee’s pregnancy in February. He posted a photo of a sign that read: “Koppang O’Leary productions presents ‘New Arrival’ coming soon.”

He wrote: “We’re pleased to announce that we’re expecting a little Koppang O’Leary.”

In April, Dermot revealed their baby was due at the end of June, early July.

The star discussed baby names as he interviewed Guy Garvey from Elbow on Zoe Ball’s Radio Two Breakfast Show.

When Guy asked when he’s becoming a dad, Dermot said: “End of June, sort of early July-ish. That’s exciting isn’t it? I can’t wait!”
