Hip hip, HOORAY and BIG CONGRATULATIONS, GARY!
The 44-year-old dad of three (Daniel, Emily, and Daisy) was voted 2015′s shining winner in the icelolly.com annual awards, which are voted for by the public.
Us mere mortals were asked to vote on which celeb dad we reckon is doing the best job of raising children while maintaining a busy career and a life in the spotlight – and with Gaz currently touring the UK with his Take That bandmates, we’d say this is very well deserved.
Especially when you factor in those Weddings he rocked up at too.
He must have a lot of Patience with his Kidz, eh? SORRY.
Speaking of his triumph, the singer said: “I’m absolutely made-up to have been voted icelolly.com Celebrity Dad of the Year 2015 and I’d like to thank everyone who voted for me.
“I’ve got to be honest I’m always a bit dubious about awards – The Brits, Oscars…but icelolly.com Celebrity Dad of the Year get it right, and they’ve got it right twice now. I think 2012 and 2015 in particular the audience has spoken and they know what they want.”
Of course, his road to victory wasn’t without obstacles, as he had to face stiff competition from the likes of Tom Fletcher, Peter Andre, Rio Ferdinand, Marvin Humes, Robbie Williams, Simon Cowell, David Beckham and Prince William.
To name just a few. PHEW.
He also took to Twitter to thank fans for their support, writing: “This road I have walked has been long and hard, there has been times I’ve felt like giving up, days, nights, months and years with only one goal insight.
“That trophy that every dad dreams one day he’ll hold, and here it is. May I thank my beautiful supporters for voting for me!!!”
Today could be the Greatest Day of your life, Gary, so take it and Shine.
Congrats again on the award!
