Dan is a very proud father

Dan Osborne‘s daughter Ella may be less than two weeks old, but he’s already had her name inked on his body. Nawww.

Jacqueline Jossa‘s man, 23, shared a selfie at a London parlour yesterday, captioning the shot: ‘About to get Tattooed againnn at @ininkwetrusttattoo by my boy @tattoo_mart !!’

The snap saw a topless Dan – who’s worked as a tattooist himself – posing with the artist, who was ready to get to work in a pair of white gloves.

The brave TOWIE hunk didn’t seem at all nervous (well, he DOES already have two sleeves), grinning happily into the camera.

And EastEnders actress Jacqueline, 22, was very excited to see her man get his etching.

She posted a picture of Dan midway through the procedure, writing: ‘Currently in @ininkwetrusttattoo watching @danosborneofficial get his tattoo!! Ouch!! LOVE IT!’

Ouch indeed! Dan is likely to have been in quite a bit of discomfort as he’s placed the scripture on his ribs, which is a particularly sensitive area.

But the pain was clearly all worth it as he proudly shared an image of the finished piece afterwards.

It shows Ella‘s lettering directly below the name Teddy, which refers to Dan‘s one-year-old son from his relationship with ex-girlfriend Megan Tomlin.

‘Thank you SO much @tattoo_mart for tattooing Ella on my ribs underneath Teddy 😊 Love it!! Give @tattoo_mart a follow guys and the shop @ininkwetrusttattoo 👌,’ he said.

Dan and Jacqueline welcomed little Ella on 15 February.

It didn’t take long for Dan to decide to get his tattoo, revealing shortly after: ‘I am going to get Ella tattooed on my ribs underneath Teddy‘s name. I’ll probably do that in the next week or so.’

But it doesn’t sound as though Jacqueline will be following in his footsteps.

‘I don’t have any tattoos. If I ever did get one, that’s what I’d get, but I don’t think I’d really suit tattoos,’ she said.
