Jamie Redknapp appears to be skipping paternity leave as he’s spotted back on set just days after welcoming his new son
Jamie Redknapp has been spotted back on the set of his TV show just days after welcoming his baby with new wife Frida Andersson.
The 48-year-old star was seen arriving on set for A League Of Their Own special.
Showing up at Theatre Royal Haymarket, Jamie arrived in in a replica of Delboy’s famous three-wheel car from Only Fools and Horses and made for the West End musical adaptation of the show.
The hardworking dad looked smart as he dressed in smart grey trousers and a shirt, with a blue jumper on top to stay warm.
He finished the look with a pair of white trainers and has managed to maintain a well-kept beard even with a newborn at home.
Although he is adapting to life with a new baby, the star managed to make his way to set alongside colleagues Mel B and Freddie Flintoff for filming.
It was on Wednesday that Jamie announced to the world that he’d welcomed his new son into the world with wife Frida just weeks after their wedding.
Taking to Instagram, Jamie shared a beaming snap with the tiny tot with his 1.4 million followers.
The doting dad looked tired but thrilled as he lay in bed with his baby boy.
He captioned the snap: “Meet Raphael Anders Redknapp, we’re so in love, mum is doing so well too.
“We can’t thank the amazing doctors and nurses at the Chelsea and Westminster enough. So excited for him to meet my boys [heart emoji]”.
The name is a sweet nod to Frida’s Swedish roots, with a source who spoke to The Sun claiming the baby boy’s middle name is in honour of Frida’s late grandfather.
They said: “Jamie and Frida wanted to give him a Swedish name too, and Frida loved her late grandfather Anders so they named him after him.”
Jamie is already father to Charles William, 17, and Beau Henry, 13, from his marriage with Eternal singer Louise Redknapp.
The couple divorced in December 2017, with Louise recently admitting that she wished she has ‘tried’ with Jamie rather than having ‘run’.
Speaking to The Sun, Louise said: “I should have paused and thought about other people and had just a bit more time to work out why I felt I couldn’t do it any more. I wish I’d tried. I want to say to anyone thinking of running: Just slow down. Don’t run.
“Because once you run too fast, you can’t make up the ground you’ve lost. Stop, say what you need, say what you think, don’t be afraid to say what’s really going on. You don’t have to be quiet.”
It was reported that the singer was ‘ blindsided ‘ by her ex-husband’s wedding.
