James Jordan, 42, welcomed his daughter Ella with wife Ola Jordan earlier this year and has since documented his journey into fatherhood. The former Strictly star confessed he had recently made a mistake after giving Ella a sugary snack right before bed.
What are you doing?
James posted a video onto his Instagram explaining: “So, I thought I was being good daddy helping Ola out while she was upstairs.
“I mixed up some apple and banana for Ella. Now I think she’s had a sugar rush and there is no way she’s going to bed.”
He then turned to his daughter and said: “What are you doing? Is Daddy silly? I didn’t know.
“Look at you! So much energy, wonderful! What time are you going to keep us up to tonight?”

The baby was seen kicking her legs while holding a toy, as her dad said: “Oh dear.”
James and Ola became parents in February after enduring a heartbreaking fertility battle.
Previously the couple had struggled to become parents and had spoken on their battle to conceive.
Doctors had said there was only a 50/50 chance that the blonde dancer could get pregnant.
However, Ola conceived after her first round of IVF in June 2019.
She previously told Hello! magazine: “I would love to be a mum with all my heart and I just thought it would happen naturally.
“James is also desperate to have babies and I just wish it could have happened by now. That’s the one gift I would love to give him.
“I guess I just thought, like most women, that I could choose when the time was right for me; that I could have my career and then have a baby when it felt right.

“But for us it just hasn’t happened like that,” she added.
The couple have also had a difficult time as of late, after news that James’ dad Allan has been diagnosed with cancer.
James and Ola recently treated Allan to a meal at a local seafood restaurant for his birthday.
James said of the special occasion: “We had our own private area at a fish restaurant for social distancing.
“It was my mum, my dad, my sister, the children, my grandad.
“It was nice for my dad to do something a bit different with all of us, then we went on a nice walk at the front.
“It was a lovely day,” he added.
Ola admitted that seeing Allan go through continued treatment for his condition has been “hard”.
