Noel Fielding, host of Great British Bake Off, to become a dad for the first time at 44

Noel Fielding is preparing to hear the pitter patter of tiny feet for the first time, as he’s set to become a father for the first time at the age of 44.
The news that his girlfriend Lliana Bird is carrying their child broke on Instagram this weekend when the 36-year-old shared a picture along with the hashtag #preggoboxing.

‘Thank you @hollyactive for keeping (well, getting) me fit and active! Grown to absolutely love boxing this past year and Holly has been the driving force behind that, she commented.

‘I’m literally one of the naturally laziest people i know, but even I’ve been loving the boxing once or twice a week and if i can do it you defo can!!! x x x #preggoboxing #badassbumps.’

In the picture, the mum-to-be is seen throwing a powerful-looking punch while dressed in black Lycra.

Radio X presenter Lliana’s blossoming baby bump is clear to see as she works up a sweat.

The fitness instructor accompanied her upload with a sweet message directed at Lliana, whilst also confirming how far along the mum-to-be is.

‘Training my lovely client @llianabird nearly 8 months pregnant and you are still smashing it, literally! 🥊❤️,’ she gushed.

Holly then went on to discuss how keeping fit can have a positive effect on expectant mothers.

‘Everyone will have a different experience throughout their pregnancy but if you are able to keep exercising then there are so many health benefits. It can improve posture and decrease some common discomforts such as backaches and fatigue,’ she continued.

‘There is evidence that physical activity may prevent gestational diabetes (diabetes that develops during pregnancy), relieve stress, and build more stamina needed for labour and delivery.’

Great British Bake Off host Noel, 44, has been in a a relationship with Lliana since 2010. The duo live together in London.
