GAZ Beadle has quit Geordie Shore after six years on the show, following the news he is having a baby with girlfriend Emma McVey.
The 29-year-old, who is the most popular and longest-standing member of the cast, will be bowing out of the MTV show this year so he can start the next chapter of his life with Emma and their baby.
A source exclusively told The Sun Online: “Gary is leaving Geordie Shore this year. Producers are begging him to stay longer because they can’t see the show having a future when he leaves.
“Now he’s a dad there’s no way Gaz is going to carry on in the house. He’s taking this really seriously and wants to be there for Emma and their baby every step of the way. ”
Alongside the picture of the couple cuddling up with a pair of baby booties, Gaz wrote: “SO SO SO excited to eventually be able to tell you all this… I AM GOING TO BE A DAD… WE ARE HAVING A BABY..”
“I love kids and literally can’t wait for this new adventure… argghhhh literally no words SOOOO HAPPY!!!”
MTV had no comment when contacted by The Sun Online.
