Emmerdale actor Danny Miller has opened up about his joy at becoming a dad to son Albert.
Speaking exclusively to OK!, the 30 year old gushed that there is “no feeling” like becoming a father for the first time.
The star said: “Most of my mates or family members who have had kids, they always tell you there is no feeling like it and it can be a tiresome saying, but it’s not until you have one you understand what they’re saying.”
Danny, who plays Aaron Dingle in the ITV soap, continued: “There really is no feeling like it.”
Danny and his midwife fiancée Steph Jones welcomed son Albert into the world on 25 October at 9:16am, weighing 6lbs 11oz.
The couple also opened up to OK! about the touching meaning behind their son’s sweet name.
"I’ve loved the name from when I was a kid," he said. "Steph’s granddad was called Albert but when we were in school I just knew him as Steph’s granddad, so when I suggested it, I didn’t know it was her granddad’s name."
While Steph, also 30, added: "Danny said to me, 'I’ve got a name that I really love but I’m not sure what you’ll think about it,' and then when he said 'Albert', I said it must be a sign as that was my granddad’s name.
"My mum was really pleased as it was her dad," she continued. "It was really emotional for her."
And Albert’s birth was also an emotional one, with Danny revealing he was “in bits” when his little boy arrived.
"I was in bits. I was very emotional. I was like a baby myself,” said Danny, who is rumoured to be heading into this year’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! in Wales’ Gwrych Castle.
The couple got engaged in January when Danny got down on one knee during a holiday to St Lucia for his 30th birthday.
They plan to tie the knot next year in the UK, with Albert acting as a page boy on their big day, which will be attended by a host of Danny’s famous Dales co-stars.
Of the wedding he said: "I think it feels like more of a family event now Albert is here.
