After having a baby together, John Newman is now a father for the first time.
The Love Me Again singer revealed that their household would now consist of three members with Nana Maria giving birth to their first baby.
Sharing the news in an Instagram post on Monday, John wrote: ‘A star is born xx.’
He also included a black-and-white photo of the newborn asleep and wearing a knitted cap, but he has since deleted it.
The couple will not reveal any other details, but they are keeping the name and gender of their baby private.
John, 32 and Nana Marie have been together for years. They first met while flying from Copenhagen to Bornholm in Denmark. In 2017, John and Nana Marie were engaged.
One year earlier, Out Of My Head singer had revealed that the tumour that had been removed in 2012 had returned. Later, he received the all-clear. He now receives monthly checkups.
John previously praised Nana-Maria for supporting him throughout his health ordeal, saying: ‘I honestly couldn’t give a f*** about fame or celebrity.
‘She’s just brilliant and I really enjoy spending time with her.’
The musician recently explained that he had ‘lost all vision’ of what success was prior to lockdown.
‘When you’re touring, no matter if a single’s not doing that well or there’s c**pgoing on at home or you don’t like yourself as a person, it’s not something you actually know,’ he said.
‘When that opportunity to run and hide was taken away from me, [in lockdown,] I realized that I was not content with how my career was progressing.
‘I realised that I was just running at a thousand miles an hour to try and cover that up. Taking the free champagne and getting pictures on the red carpet and thinking that was success when really I’d lost all vision of what success was, which is the pure love and emotion of something that you’ve created doing well.’
