Louis Smith is a doting dad as he cuddles three-week-old daughter Marley

Beaming Louis Smith was every bit the doting dad as he cradled baby daughter Marley in a new snap.

The 31-year-old took to Instagram to share an adorable photo of him holding Marley Valentina Smith, who he shares with girlfriend Charlie Bruce.

The couple welcomed their first child together three weeks ago and Louis shared the first picture of her since her birth on February 14.

Louis looked incredibly proud as he took the selfie where Marley sleepily leaned on his chest.

“I just love her so much #pappa,” the former gymnast captioned the post along with three heart emojis.

Louis’ pals quickly took to the post to share the love, with Aston Merrygold posting a heart emoji.

Alexandra Burke commented with five heart-eyes emoji, while one fan wrote: “Spitting image of you.”

His first image of Marley was posted to confirm to fans that Charlie, 30, had given birth to their baby on Valentine’s Day.

He wrote: “What a 3 days it’s been. From Thursday night to Sunday morning. You women are incredible and the mother of my child is no exception.

“So glad both ladies are doing well and healthy. Marley Valentina Smith welcome.”

The new mum also shared a photo of the three of them together.

“Welcome to the world Marley Valentina Smith. Born at 2.30am on the 14th of February & weighs a healthy 7lb 5oz” she wrote.

Louis has been dating the 30-year-old since late 2017 and they quickly fell in love.

The two have been head over heels for each other ever since and confirmed they were having a little girl in the summer.
