Doting dad: In one shot the hulking TV personality towers over Teddy as the youngster gazes up at him.

Dan has maintained a close bond with Teddy following his acrimonious split with ex-partner Megan shortly after his son's birth.

The tattooed fitness fanatic has since moved on with actress Jacqueline Jossa, who gave birth to his second child, daughter Ella, in February 2015. 

In a searingly open message to Teddy, published by Now magazine last August, Dan insisted insisted had to end his 'miserable' 18-month relationship with the child's mother.

'I hope you appreciate it was the right thing to do for me to not be with your mum,' he wrote. 'We weren't in a good relationship and I didn't want us to be miserable, so I hope you understand it's for the best this way.' 

The letter, addressed to both his children, also talks about how he was scared his children would never meet one another.

'A while ago, I feared you might never meet each other and it was heartbreaking,' he wrote. 'So I know how lucky I am that you get to spend as much time together as possible.' 

The TV personality had a bitter falling out with Megan last year after allegedly threatened to stab her in a series of recorded conversations that led to his subsequent sacking from TOWIE.
