The Geordie Shore hunk, who is expecting his first child with girlfriend Emma McVey in January, took to Twitter and Instagram to share a heartwarming snap with a tiny little baby, with him smiling widely at the camera for the gorgeous shot.
Gaz Beadle simply captioned the cryptic image with: “Crazy day!” – leading hundreds of fans to believe it was HIS bundle of joy which had arrived early.
Fans in their masses rushed to congratulate the reality star, with one writing: “Wait a minute, your son was born already?” while another added: “He beautiful happy for both of you pal you be a great father!”
Alas, it seems many fans may have jumped the gun – as Gaz’s rep exclusively confirmed Emma most definitely hasn’t had her little one just yet.
Emma is set to give birth in January, after the duo announced they were expecting their first child together in August.
During her pregnancy Emma has been forced to defend herself against harsh trolls, who have criticised her smaller physique as she prepares to become a mother.

Hitting back at the comments, the brunette beauty said her baby boy is actually bigger than expected.
“I’ve had a bit of criticism about the size of my bump, people think there’s no baby bump but my waist has always been so tiny and for me it’s grown so much,” Emma wrote in her OK! Online blog.
“It still looks small, so I don’t think people realise it has changed. If you look at pictures before I was pregnant, you can tell easily.”

She continued: “My sister was tiny with her first and then with her second she put four stone on, I think it just depends, especially with how much water you carry too.
“He’s growing big, he’s a long baby, he’s actually got really long legs according to the measurements, when he’s here I think people will be actually shocked at how big he’ll be.
“The only thing that bothers me is when people say I’m unhealthy or I’m affecting the baby because they have no idea. If they could see what I eat, and how much I eat, I think they’d be shocked.”
