The Celebrity Big Brother star is the third to bear the name Frankie Cocozza, after his father and grandfather.

Frankie’s wife, Bianca, shared her own shot of the baby to Instagram Stories, showing herself breastfeeding him while his dad waits in the background.

The couple welcomed their first child earlier this week after announcing the pregnancy last year.

Frankie posted a sweet photo of himself and the baby to Instagram, saying he’d be in for a “hell of a ride.”

“You’re in for one hell of a ride son. You’ll be absolutely fine because you’re half your mother,” he said.

The singer seems to have settled down well after gaining a reputation for being a bad boy while filming X Factor in 2011.

He ultimately left the show after reports of drug use, claiming his life had got “out of control”.

After leaving he released two solo albums in 2012 and 2013. He then went on to release an album with his band, Telescreen, in 2014.

While he hasn’t released any more music since then, his personal life appears to have come a long way.

He and Bianca married in May last year, and announced they were expecting their first child in October.
