Emmerdale's Danny Miller becomes a dad

'Emmerdale' actor Danny Miller has become a dad.

The 30-year-old star - who plays Aaron Dingle in the ITV soap - took to Instagram to reveal the new addition to his family after his fiancée, midwife Steph Jones, gave birth.

He wrote in the caption: “I was lucky enough to find someone who shines bright enough to lead me out of the dark, but I never imagined to be lead to the brightest place imaginable. (sic)"

The couple's pregnancy announcement came in February, following a year of IVF treatment.

Danny previously revealed he found out Steph was expecting while he was on set, and he had to briefly leave to return the several calls she had left him.

He said: "I was in the middle of the storyline and I had seven missed calls and four texts, none of which made sense.

"I then had to step off set when I could. I knew there was something going on."

What's more, Danny recently opened up about having first-time dad jitters, but admitted he had "good nerves" about becoming a father.

The said: "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous, I think it's good nerves, though.

"But sometimes I do get a bit like. 'Oh God, what if I do this wrong?' I'm nervous about that but I think to learn and to grow, you've got to learn on the job."

The pair got engaged while on a birthday trip - arranged by Steph - to St. Lucia, which happened just weeks before they found out they were going to be parents.
