GEORDIE Shore’s Daniel Thomas-Tuck is expecting his first child with girlfriend Melissa Wood.
Daniel, who starred in series four and five of the MTV reality show, announced his happy news on Instagram, confirming that their baby is due in early 2023.
Alongside a scanned image of her unborn child, Daniel, 28, told his followers: “See you in January 2023. Time for me to grow up!”
Daniel and Melissa were inundated with congratulations from friends and fans.
Geordie Shore star Kyle Christie, father of nine-month-old son Crew, wrote: “Buzzing for you mate best feeling ever congratulations.”
Ricci Guarnaccio, who also rose to fame on the reality show, added: “HUGE congratulations to you both bro! Will be parents from hell, ma boiiii.
“PS does that mean we can get a lot of nights out before the long nights start?!”
Daniel joined the cast of Geordie Shore for the fourth season of the MTV show, which hit screens in 2012.
He was just 18 at the time and made a name for himself chasing after older women.
But by the end of series five, as the cast prepared to travel to Australia for series six, he had called it quits.
At the time Daniel said “Geordie Shore” continues to be an amazing part of my life, meeting Mint people in and out of the house and visiting amazing places and countries.
“I will really miss living with everyone as they are like a second family to me, especially the boys.”
Alluding to his fondness for the older lady, he added: “I have decided not to travel to Australia with the rest of the crew, instead staying in Newcastle where I intend to pursue some exciting personal projects and continue to hunt down MILFs !”
Daniel briefly returned to Geordie Shore in 2016 for his five-year anniversary show called Big Birthday Battle.
