Welcome to the world, Buddy Bob Fletcher!

McFly’s Tom Fletcher has shared his first picture of newborn son Buddy, and if it isn’t the most adorable thing you’ve seen today we’ll eat our fedora.

Tom welcomed little buddy into the world on Tuesday after his wife, author and presenter Giovanna, gave birth to Buddy Bob Fletcher, the couple’s second child.

Since then we’ve been impatiently waiting for social-media-nut Tom to share a snap of the little bundle of joy – and today we got our wish!

The black and white shot shows baby Buddy’s teeny-tiny hand tightly clutching his famous papa’s thumb.

And, whilst we can’t quite see his face, it looks as though Buddy has inherited his mum’s dark Italian locks!

McFly star Tom announced the happy news on Twitter, telling his 1.4million followers that ‘Player 2 has entered the game’:

Calling the baby ‘Player 2’ is a reference to the lovely way in which childhood sweethearts Tom and Giovanna announced their pregnancy – a very cute YouTube video, about video gaming  (watch it here!)

He then followed up with an emotional message about feeling ‘completely overwhelmed with love’ for his new son – grab your tissues for this one, folks…

‘Completely overwhelmed with love for our second son Buddy, and can’t wait for him to meet his big brother. Thanks for the lovely messages. X’

Adorable, huh?

Buddy Bob joins 23-month-old Buzz Michaelangelo as sons in the Fletcher family.

Giovanna’s brother, TOWIE’s Mario Falcone has also expressed his delight at becoming an uncle again, and sent his congratulations for the new arrival:

Such lovely news – sending our best wishes to the family!
