The proud dad revealed that he and his son Mario, born through a surrogate and donor egg fertilised with his sperm in 2013, are "overjoyed".

While Perez didn’t reveal the sex or name of his new offspring, he did explain that the road to parenting this second time round had been a "difficult journey".

"Every child is a blessing and this Mother’s Day was extra blessed for me and my mother! From my family to yours, much love!"

While fans have been flocking to congratulate the journalist on his new addition, Perez has not always had such a positive response to his actions, namely during his time in this year’s CBB.

Perez was often seen as provocative to the other housemates and his bizarre and regularly antagonistic behaviour garnered a lot of negative press attention. He was sent home in a double eviction on day 29.
