Midway through the chat, Rylan asked to hold Alex – and the star looked every inch a doting dad.
At the end of the interview, he asked Jen “can we keep him” as he held the baby who looked very content in his arms.
People at home were in bits over the segment after they watched the moment Alex heard his mum’s voice with the help of a hearing aid.
And they rushed to tell Rylan that he is a natural with babies, as one said Twitter: “@Rylan you both are a natural with baby Alex”
Referring to Rylan and Gok’s new nickname, another fan said: “ROK be broody!”

But despite treating Cameron like his own flesh and blood, Rylan has previously admitted to being broody.
Although, he does admit now is not the right time.
