Paul Gascoigne is 'over the moon' after finding out he is going to be a grandad for the first time.
The England legend's stepson Mason is having a baby with his partner Jaimee Wyatt.
Gazza's baby joy emerged after his stepdaughter Bianca Gascoigne let slip on her Instagram page.
Posting a picture of herself and her brother on a night out, the 33-year-old wrote: “I’m going to be an auntie! My brother Mase is having a baby!”
Ms Wyatt confirmed the news, writing on Instagram: “Couldn’t be any more happier. We are having a healthy beautiful baby.”
Gascoigne was in need of a boost after burglars stole £140,000 of jewellery from his home recently – including treasured items belonging to his late dad.
And a source close to the former Tottenham, Everton, Newcastle and Lazio star said it was just the pick-me-up he needed.
“Gazza is over the moon," the source told The Sun. "It’s just the bit of good news he needs. He can’t wait to be a grandad.”
Gascoigne, 53, captured the affections of a nation when he cried during the 1990 World Cup when a yellow card meant he would miss England's final game.
Earlier this month he made a tearful plea to the burglars who raided his home, saying: “It’s sad because I have so many memories attached to the items.
“My dad’s belongings meant so much to me, I’d really like them back.”
The raiders’ haul included a £2,000 gold cigar cutter and watch both owned by his father John who died aged 72 from cancer two years ago.
Gascoigne claims the thieves struck after Piers Morgan posted a picture of him on Twitter sitting in the ITV Life Stories audience on the night of the burglary.
He said: "Police think that the picture Piers posted of us filming in London could have alerted burglars that I was away.
“But they must have been hungry, they took my two steaks out of the freezer.
“At least they were considerate enough to leave me some chicken.”
And he joked: “Piers, I’ll let you off on the gold watch, but you owe me two f***ing steaks.”
The Good Morning Britain presenter later gave Gascoigne a pile of steaks to make amends for his accidental tip-off, with the former footballer admitting he didn't hold a grudge.
