The Celebs Go Dating star was positively beaming as he discussed his son playing with his pet dog.
Blue singer and former EastEnders star Lee Ryan has joined the cast of Celebs Go Dating after splitting from former fiancé Sammi Millar.
But who is she and how many kids do they have together? Here's the lowdown...
Boy band member Lee Ryan may have been in his late teens when he first joined Blue, but now, as he appears on Celebs Go Dating, he is aged 36.
Besides Lady Colin Campbell, Ryan is the oldest contestant in the season 7 line-up of the hit E4 show.
Sammi Millar is a hairdresser who reportedly met Lee over social media site Myspace.
They were then engaged for two years, before Ryan was charged with assault, after allegedly striking Millar. The charges were then dropped, but the couple separated.
Ryan was also previously engaged to Atomic Kitten's Liz McClarnon in 2003, but they split before getting hitched.
In total, Lee Ryan has two children; daughter Bluebell and son Rayn.
While Rayn - who was born in 2008 - is also the son of Sammi Millar, Bluebell is the daughter of Lee and another ex called Jessica Keevil.
You can catch all the latest Celebs Go Dating action on weekday evenings from 9pm, on E4.
