Jimmy Carr has reportedly revealed on stage he has become a dad for the first time.

The comedian, 48, and his long term partner 46-year-old Karoline Copping, a Channel 5 executive, are believed to welcomed a baby together, and were spotted out pushing a pram last year.

According to The Sun he confirmed the news during his set at the O2 Academy in Brixton, South London with a typically acerbic gag.

He is said to have told the audience: ‘I had to tell my little boy he’s adopted.

‘I mean he isn’t, but the look on his face. I said, “No, no, no you were adopted, the new family is picking you up tomorrow.’

The 8 Out Of 10 Cats star also got in a joke about gender reveal parties, saying: ‘We’re having a gender-reveal party for our kid but we’re going to wait until he’s 21 just to be sure.

‘With some babies you can’t tell, is it a boy or an ugly girl?’

In January he was spotted stopping by a real estate agency in London, pushing a grey pram in front of him.

Neither Jimmy or Karoline have discussed their plans for starting a family and until now, the TV star has not publicly revealed he is a dad.

The couple live in North London and have been together since 2001.

Karoline is the commissioning editor for Channel 5 and first met at an audition years back.

He later asked her out at a gig.

In 2016 the Your Face or Mine star confessed he didn’t make a great first impression on his partner when they first met.

Appearing on Desert Island Discs, Jimmy quipped Katherine thought he was a ‘one-note comedian with the eyes of a sex offender’.

Metro.co.uk has contacted Jimmy’s rep for comment.
