What did James Jordan share on Instagram about baby Ella?

On Instagram, James posted a picture of himself sitting with Ella, his hair looking wild and longer than it usually does.

And in the caption he said that while having a baby ‘ages’ you, he wouldn’t change any of it for the world.

The photo, posted on Wednesday (September 9), shows James looking well and truly knackered, while Ella looks contentedly at the camera with his face resting on her dad’s chest.

The Dancing On Ice winner wrote in the caption, “Anyone that says ‘Having a baby doesn’t age you’ is lying” along with a crazy face emoji and the hashtags #Fatherhood and #wouldntchangeitfortheworld.

In the comments, Jason’s fans couldn’t help poking fun at his dramatic new look.

One laughed: “James, what’s with your hair?”

Another joked: “You do know that hairdressers are open now?”

Anyone that says ‘Having a baby doesn’t age you’ is lying.

A third said, comparing him to a character from a children’s book: “Ever seen Count Olaf from A Series of Unfortunate Events?”

Someone else demanded: “James get an haircut.”

“Loving the hair James,” said another, alongside a laughing-crying emoji.

James was a pro dancer on Strictly from 2006 to 2013.
