Sharing the first pictures of his daughter, Malique wrote: “22-09-22 Milan thompson-Dwyer was born❤.”

His famous pals rushed to congratulate him, with Anna Williams writing: “Huge congratulations ❤.”

Nikki Sanderson commented: “Congratulations”, while Chelsee Healey added: “Oh my god so perfect 😢😍😍😍. Congratulations to you all and well done mummy ❤❤❤❤.”

Co-star Owen Warner couldn’t resist poking fun, telling him: “1 day old and still got a better trim than you 👀😂 she’s beautiful bro ❤.”

Malique only revealed last month he had a mystery girlfriend and that she was pregnant.

He wrote at the time: “Ain’t no one ever loved me like you love me that’s why I’ve got you for life. Your gonna be the best mum.”

Malique also has a daughter named Alexis with a previous partner.

After he welcomed his daughter in 2017, the former I’m A Celeb star admitted his life turned upside down as he adjusted to fatherhood.

Malique told his Instagram followers that year: “I’m not going to lie, 2017 broke me, matured me, whooped my ass, humbled me, blessed me, made me smarter and wiser.

“It showed me snakes are everywhere & family & friends are just titles if the love isn’t real.”

He added: “So basically 2017 was the best worst of my entire life. Here’s to 2018.”

Meanwhile, Malique returned to Hollyoaks last year after previously quitting to pursue a career in reality television for two years.
