Mario Falcone told fans he was "so excited" to meet his nephew Buddy Bob as he headed off to greet the newborn with some very important gifts.

Every family needs a 'cool uncle', right? Well, luckily for Tom and Giovanna Fletcher, ex-TOWIE star Mario (Giovanna's brother) is ensuring his nephews have a wardrobe to rival their peers - and our own to be honest.

Mario excitedly told fans on Twitter that he couldn't wait to meet his sister Giovanna's baby Buddy Bob today (17 February), saying: "Off to meet my new Nephew Buddy today. So excited."

Not one to show up empty handed, Mario explained to followers he was fulfilling his important duty as an uncle to "ensure their trainer game is strong from day 1."

Sharing a snap on Instagram, Mario revealed he'd splurged on some seriously cute pairs of trainers for Buddy and his big brother Buzz.

Captioning the image, he wrote: "As an uncle it is not just my job to keep a watchful eye over my nephews... But to also ensure their trainer game is strong from day 1! #buzz #buddy #family."

Lucky kids!

Speaking to Reveal last year, Mario confessed he'd "love" a family of his own. Can you imagine how cool his tots would look?

He said: "Buzz takes after me with how cute he is. I would love to have that but I don't want to rush into something with the wrong person. It will happen when it happens."

Mario already shares a super close bond to Buzz, who despite his young age has proved he's inherited the cool gene and broken the internet multiple times thanks to his adorable reaction to dandelions and blossoming vocal talent. We can't wait to see Mario in action with the new Fletcher too.

Giovanna first announced the new arrival yesterday (16 February) by sharing a photo of a sunny blue sky, saying: "What a beautiful day to be born... Welcome to the world Buddy Bob Fletcher. xxx #player2."

Meanwhile, McFly singer Tom also confirmed the arrival by saying: "Player 2 has entered the game." That's a reference to the YouTube video Tom and Giovanna created last year to announce the pregnancy.

He later added: "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."

Tom, 30, and Giovanna, 31, announced in September that they were expecting a second child, using a creative YouTube video. It saw Tom bringing an old computer console down from the attic to play. Their son Buzz was selected as Player One… Player Two showed as 'Loading' before the camera panned to Giovanna's stomach.
