BOLTON pop star Danny Jones has become a dad for the first time.

The McFly singer and guitarist was over the moon when wife Georgie gave birth to Cooper Alf Jones.

The 31-year-old, from Horwich, said he was like Only Fools And Horses' characters Del Boy and Rodney in the birthing suite before the sudden arrival of his child.

Georgia, who gave birth nine days after her due date, was having a bath when she suddenly felt an overwhelming urge to push.

She said: "I thought this baby is going to be born at home in the bath... or in the car."

Danny said: "I would love to see that CCTV of us arriving at one o'clock in the morning. I was frantic. When we got to the birthing suite, I skidded in like Del Boy and Rodney, grabbed the first wheelchair I could find but it had a dodgy wheel so I ended up going round and round in circles."

Georgia told Hello magazine: "I was sat with my hands between my legs trying to hold in the baby."

Cooper was born just 36 minutes after the couple arrived at hospital at 1.36am in the morning.

"All our plans for having lavender burning to keep us calm and our favourite music playing went out of the window!" Georgia said.

"I keep telling her how proud I am of her, my respect for her went through the roof. Our little man's a ledge and we are overwhelmed with love," Danny added.
