Big Reunion star Ritchie Neville is one proud daddy, admitting his daughter Ella Rose has "completely melted" him.

In September last year, Ritchie became a father for the first time after his partner Natasha Hamilton gave birth to their baby girl.

And taking fatherhood in his stride, the 5ive singer is smitten with his little one, saying he has "never been happier".

Speaking to Mail Online about four-month-old Ella, Ritchie said: "My little girl has completely melted me."

While Ella is Ritchie's first crack at being a dad, Natasha is already mum to three boys - Josh, 12, Harry, 9 and Alfie, four, from previous relationships.

Now a stepfather to Natasha's sons as well, the 35-year-old singer admitted that taking on his parenting duties have come as a "big change for him".

"It's definitely been a big change and an enriching one," he added. "I find myself throwing out those classic parent lines, like 'I can't hear myself think'!"

Despite being loved-up with a full house at home, Ritchie did reveal he and Natasha won't be tying the knot just yet.

Insisting the pair have "no plans to get married" at the moment, he said: "We had a very busy last year with the pregnancy, we are doing just fine."

There may not be any plans to wed in the pipeline at the moment, but we have no doubt wedding bells are definitely on the cards for Ritchie and his other half.

The couple first started dating after both starring on The Big Reunion back in 2013, and shortly after getting together, Natasha announced she and Ritchie were expecting a child together.

Since then, the pair's relationship has gone from strength to strength and Natasha has openly gushed about her beau in public.

Shortly after the arrival of their baby girl, Natasha tweeted: "Sometimes your dealt an ace card, and mine was the day you came into my life @RitchieNeville x."
