GEORDIE Shore’s Aaron Chalmers has welcomed his second baby boy, Maddox, after girlfriend Talia gave birth five and a half weeks early.
The new bundle of joy’s arrival comes just over one year after the birth of their first son, Romeo – who was born on 11 April 2020.

The 33-year-old star took to his Instagram Story this evening to share the good news with fans, writing: “Baby has arrived, Talia and baby doing amazing” alongside a string of besotted heart emojis.
He then shared a boomerang video of himself cradling his newborn in the hospital, going on to post a selection of close-up photos that revealed more details – including the little boy’s name.
He wrote: “Welcome to the world baby Maddox
“He’s 5 and half weeks early but he’s a healthy 5.5lbs and Mam and baby doing amazing 💙🥰”

Aaron and Talia had been documenting her long labour after she was taken to hospital yesterday – weeks before her due date.
They’d previously revealed that their little one was due in May, but Aaron shared a loved-up snap of himself with his arm around his partner on a date night as he joked it’d unwittingly been their “last for a while”.
He wrote: “Last night literally was our last date night for a while 😂 I think the hot food broke Talia’s waters early this morning 😂🤦🏽♂️!!

And this afternoon, Talia was seen rubbing her forehead in exasperation as she lay in her hospital bed, writing: “Feel rough as hell, not even going to use a filter as I’m sure you mums know what it feels like right now.”
The new arrival is Talia’s third child, with the influencer also mum to seven-year-old Siennah from a previous relationship.
She and Aaron split four months after welcoming Romeo last year following a rocky three-year romance.

However, they soon reconciled – announcing in November that they were back together and already expecting again.
A festive photo of Romeo being cuddled by his big sister featured four ultrasound scans of their new sibling, with a blackboard behind the pair reading: “Dear Santa!!!
“Thank you for our early Christmas present another baby Chalmers due May 2021.”
Aaron wrote at the time: “Christmas has definitely come early 👶🏽 we must be mad!!! ANOTHER baby Chalmers on the way 💙💜.”
