Josh Peck From 'Drake & Josh' Has Just Become A Dad

Happy New Year's guys - the year is 2019 and if that isn't enough to make you feel old, then how about the news that Drake & Josh star Josh Peck has just become a dad?

Yup, that's right, the child star you watched growing up now has his own child.

Josh, 32, shared the news that his wife Paige O'Brien had given birth to an adorable baby boy - Max Milo Peck - on Instagram last night.

The post was quickly flooded with comments and well-wishes from fans, as well as over a million likes, because newborns are top content, apparently.

Josh and Paige have been married for around seven years and announced they were expecting last year. Josh proudly shared the news with former co-star and long-term pal Drake Bell last August.

In a heartwarming clip shared to Josh's YouTube channel, the pair are sat on a sofa together when Drake asks: "What's going on, man?"

To which a delighted-looking Josh replies: "Just having a baby."

Drake replies: "Dude, this is so wild."

The pair then begin to lament that they have become 'that old', before Drake demands to have a 'cool uncle name' and vows to teach the little 'un guitar.

"Ah, this is so dope," Drake says.

To which Josh then asks: "Will you have a kid soon so they can be friends and then have their own TV show?"

Yes, mate, get cracking with that immediately, please.

It hasn't all been plain sailing for the former child-stars, though. Back in 2017 our childhoods were smashed to pieces when Drake slammed Josh and vowed to 'cut all ties' after he failed to receive an invite to Josh and Paige's wedding. Awkward, that.

In a couple of heart-felt posts on Twitter Drake wrote: "When you're not invited to the wedding the message is clear."

Followed by: "True colours have come out today. Message is loud and clear. Ties are officially cut. I'll miss you brotha."

He added: "Loyalty is key... ALWAYS remember where you came from."

But later that year, the pair seemingly reconciled and hugged it out. Since then they've shared clips of themselves together on social media and managed to patch up our shattered childhoods by looking like best mates again.

Now all we need is for Josh to ask Drake to be godfather to little Max Milo and we can be happy.
