TOWIE star Dan Osborne is not able to sleep well because of his new baba but he's already planning her on screen debut

Welcoming a new baby into the world is always going to be a difficult – if very rewarding – experience.

So it’s no surprise that TOWIE hunk Dan Osborne is suffering like any other dad would since the birth of his daughter Ella!

Speaking exclusively to Now, the 23 year old said: ‘I’m having sleepless nights, that’s for sure!

Ella was born on Sunday 15 February at 5.04pm, weighting 7lb 10oz. ‘She’s a mini Jackie, she’s so cute. She’s only been here a few days but we can’t imagine not having her,’ he adds in a separate interview.

And sources have told us that Dan and Jaqueline Jossa‘s little girl is even set to appear on the ITVBe show in some capacity!

An insider said: ‘Ella will be seen on TOWIE, she’s shooting her first scenes with her daddy this week’.

Billie Faiers best watch out with baby Nellie, as there’s a new baby in TOWIE Town!

We wonder if EastEnders actress Jacqueline will have a role too? We’d love to see her do a cameo!

Dan wasn’t seen much in the first episode of the series, undoubtedly because he was too busy with his new baby, but we did get to see a cheeky glimpse of him without his top on as he relaxed in a steam room with Elliott Wright and James Locke. More of this, please, TOWIE producers!

The group discussed Elliott‘s rocky relationship with Chloe Sims, which degenerated into a shouting match at the climax of last night’s show. We wonder if the pair will ever be able to be friends again?

Meanwhile, Dan‘s ex-girlfriend Megan Tomlin – the mother of his one-year-old son Teddy – has reported a number of alleged historic domestic incidents to the police.

A spokesperson confirmed that investigations are ongoing, and Dan has not been questioned nor have any charges been brought against him.
