His other daughter Nicola, 37, gave birth to a little girl two years ago.

Bruno’s happy news comes just weeks after he told SE how he had suffered a relapse in his battle with bipolar disorder.

The retired heavyweight – who has battled mental health problems since quitting the ring in 1996 – told us: “I can’t lie mentally, the last few months have been really, really tough.

“There have been some really dark days which have pushed me right to the brink.

“But I am still here and still fighting and that’s what I will always try to do.”

Bruno remains one of the country’s most loved sporting icons, and he agreed to speak out because he fears many, like him, have struggled with the fallout of the pandemic.

The ex-WBC king, who has been previously sectioned, battled through by getting medical advice, leaning on friends and exercising.

And now he is back on the straight and narrow and has opened his own gym in Northampton where he wants to help train others going through mental health problems.
