Michael and baby Gianluca
Michael became a father for the first time at 50 back in 2021.
His son, Gianluca was born six weeks premature and was in ICU for several weeks before Michael and his partner, Helen, could take him home.
Gianluca was born with a condition Gastroschisis, which is when the bowel or the intestines are outside of the stomach.
During an appearance on Loose Women last February, Michael revealed that the whole experience had taken its toll on his mental health.
“I was always the one people came to and asked ‘can you help me out. And now, the last seven months have been tough,” he said at the time.
“I have to say, any charity work I do in the future will always be for Great Ormond Street because they helped save my son’s life,” he later added.
