Great British Bake Off host Noel Fielding and girlfriend Lliana Bird expecting a baby

Congratulations are in order!

Great British Bake Off host Noel Fielding’s girlfriend Lliana Bird is pregnant with their first child.

Radio X DJ Lliana confirmed the happy baby news on Instagram via a photo of her working out, a blossoming baby bump firmly on display.

She captioned the snap: “Preggo boxing.”

Just in case anyone was in any doubt!

In the black and white snap, Lliana is seen boxing with her personal trainer, Holly Davidson.

She told fans she’d “grown to absolutely love boxing” over the last year, crediting Holly for being the person to introduce her to the sport.

“I’m literally one of the naturally laziest people I know, but even I’ve been loving the boxing once or twice a week, and if I can do it, you defo can!”

Holly posted the same image to her own Instagram account, saying Lliana is nearly eight months pregnant.

Fans were quick to congratulate Noel and Lliana on the news, with one saying: “I know I don’t know you and I don’t normally feel much about famous people doing big things but I am really really happy for you and Noel Fielding having a 👶🏼. I reckon you’re gonna be the loveliest parents!”

Another said: “I’m so happy for you, I feel like my heart is about to burst! Sending all my love and best wishes to you & Noel. You guys will be the most amazing parents.”

A third added: “Awwww congrats to you and Noel!!! Parenthood is so much fun and you guys are going to be amazing!”

Noel has yet to say anything about the pregnancy but perhaps that’s not surprising given how very private he is.

While Noel has kept schtum, his close pal Serge Pizzorno from Kasabian has spoken out.

Serge told The Mirror: “He’s going to be the best dad. It’s going to be amazing. I can’t wait.”

Noel, 44, joined Great British Bake as a host alongside Sandi Toksvig last year.

They were part of the revamped lineup for the show – featuring Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith as judges – after its big money move from BBC to Channel 4.

And apparently it was Kasabian’s Serge that convinced Noel to take the job!

Serge previously told BBC Newsbeat: “We had a conversation. It was funny, we just laughed. I was like, ‘Well, it’s an adventure isn’t it?'”

Indeed it is!
