Kirk with Holli Willis, who is Violett's mother.

Breaking the happy news to fans last night, he said: "The time has arrived!!! I'm finally a dad! My little princess Violett was born yesterday and she's so beautiful!!!"

He later shared a photo of Violett's tiny hand alongside the caption: "I'm finally a dad!!!! Words can't describe how I feel right now!!! Say hello to Violett every one."

Violett's mother is Holli Willis, who became engaged to Kirk last year. They had enjoyed a romance seven years ago and rekindled their relationship after bumping into each other at a restaurant.

He told MailOnline last year: "We used to go out seven years ago! We literally just bumped into each other, she was sat at the table next to me! We've been inseparable from that moment on. It feels like fate – we're very much in love and I'm off the market for the rest of my life."

Their current status is unclear, however, as fans have noted all images of Holli have been removed from Kirk's social media accounts…

Congrats to Kirk and Holli!
