James Farrar has become a father for the first time after welcoming his new child to the world with his wife, Ali Roff.

The 35 year old EastEnders actor who plays Zack Hudson on the BBC One soap, shared a joyful snap of his little one cradled in his mother's arms on his Instagram story and tagged his closest family and friends.

He wrote: “Life will never stand still again and nor will I! #bobbinglife'.

The loved-up couple have not yet revealed the name or gender of their bundle of joy.

The new parents met 15 years ago and tied the knot four years ago, with James admitting that his wife is his “soulmate.”

Wellbeing expert and author, Ali, announced their pregnancy back in July with a photo of the couple smiling in the mirror as they cradled her baby bump.

She captioned the photo: “Mama and Papa. #babylove #firstbumppic #love.”

Ali revealed their bundle of joy was over a week late last month when she shared a hilarious video of herself doing an impression of a “beached whale”.

The new mum showcased her baby bump back on the beach in October and revealed: “8 days late, yoga is a full time job right now getting this bebe into optional position and keeping my head in the zone – staying connected to trust and disconnecting from fear around uncertainty is a real test right now!”

The first time mum said she would recommend hypno-birthing to “anyone”.

The arrival of their little one comes after James and Ali celebrated 15 years of knowing each other earlier this month.

To mark the occasion James shared a series of snaps from their wedding day and throughout Ali’s pregnancy to celebrate his “impressive” wife.

He dedicated the post to his “soulmate” Ali as he wrote: “15 years ago Als came into my life. Every day I learn something new from you. I’ve never met anyone with such intelligence. Especially emotional.

“I fell for you hard – I loved partying with you – and you’re an absolute sort. However, falling in love with you was down to your awareness of this world.

"The mad social conditioning. Behavioural traits, brought on by trauma, and their triggers. How we communicate is why we thrive. And you’ve taught me that.”

The actor went on to commend his wife’s new book The Wellfuness Project, before reflecting on his own parents as the couple prepared to welcome their own child.

He continued: “We have both come from parents that gave us time and love. My dad taught me how to be a lad that could be vulnerable.

“Your mum taught you how to be a woman, to lead a family and break the patriarchy. Most important of all, we felt seen by our parents.

“Our baby comes into a world where fear is conditioned, but there will be none of this at home. You will learn from your grandparents, aunties and uncles to be fearless. But most importantly, you’ll learn this from your incredible Mummy.”

Speaking of Ali’s pregnancy, he reflected how she was “working full-time, smiling, dancing, singing, laughing” the whole time.

He added: “I will adore our child, but continue to adore your magic Als. You’ve impressed me more than ever through this pregnancy.”
