‘I’m finally a dad!!!! Words can’t describe how I feel right now!!! Say hello to Violett every one’ he gushed excitedly.

Fans have been quick to share their well wishes: one comment reads ‘Congratulations what a beautiful name enjpy every minute – goes too quickly’.

Kirk and Holli first dated when they were 20 years old, but separated. During his stint on TOWIE, Kirk was involved with various other women, but was most notably engaged to US model Cami-Li.

But after they ran into each other once again in early 2015, Kirk and Holli’s spark was rekindled and he popped the question in August.

Violett joins four-year-old Scarlett, Holli’s daughter from a previous relationship, in their family.

Congratulations to them both!
