Dan, 22, excitedly revealed the child's sex to his Twitter fans before embarking on a shopping spree for boys' baby clothes.
He said (8 August): "Very proud to announce I'm having a little Boy :) shopping timeee..."
Of course, model and tattooist Dan wasted no time in showing off what he had bought so far for his unborn son!
Sharing a photo of some cute Nike trainers alongside Dan's own pair, he gushed: "Like father like son... :)."
Dan, who confirmed in June that he was having a child with his ex-girlfriend, called off his relationship with co-star Lucy Mecklenburgh after the pair enjoyed a summer romance in Marbella.
Speaking about his joy at becoming a first-time dad, Dan told his father in the last series of the Essex-based reality show that he couldn't "stop smiling" at the news.
Dan also said at the time: "I know I'll be a great dad and will be there every step of the way."
We bet he can't wait to meet his little son!
