Jermain Defoe has become a father for the first time, after his former girlfriend Anne-Marie Moore gave birth to Joshua-James Defoe on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old England ace was present at the birth and has since seen his newborn son every day since, the Sun reported.

According to Defoe's friends, the striker, who is no longer in relationship with Moore, is thrilled to be a dad and is looking forward to play an active role in Joshua's upbringing.

One of his friends said that Defoe had a wild side in his twenties, which he readily accepts, but this is a new stage in his life and he really does want to be a good father. (ANI)
