Baker Mark Lawton of Northern Ireland will be helping out in the kitchen soon after welcoming the new baby boy to Sydney.
A contestant in the 2020 edition of The Great British Backup, the Porta Down man used social media to share exciting news following the birth of fellow Laura Dean on Thursday.
The former project manager appeared on the Hit Channel 4 show last year, extending it to Week 6 before leaving the competition.
The 32-year-old posted a picture of the new family addition to his 73,000 followers on Instagram.
“Welcoming a new addition to our family – Sidney Luton – Dean who was born last week,” he said.
“Laura and Sid are doing great, and we’d love to spend time together as a family who know this wonderful little chapter.
Liverpool Women’s Hospital – A great slogan for the incredible team at Liverpool Women’s.
“Thank you for bringing Sid into the world safely and for taking care of Laura. A special thank you to Pam, the absolute hero of a midwife – I don’t think we’ll ever forget how amazing you were.
Mr Luton shared a series of photos of baby Sydney in his arms, with hundreds leaving congratulatory messages for the family and more than 16,000 likes for the post.
Now based in Liverpool, in February this year, Mr Lytton launched a cookery and baking project to keep him busy during the lockdown, which showcased world food.
The ‘The World at Your Table’ project launched on its Instagram page and saw it post different versions from 28 countries every day for 28 days.
