The First Dates star is one proud dad after his daughter won her second Commonwealth Games gold.

First Dates star Fred Sirieix has said he's 'crying' after his daughter won yet another gold metal for Team GB at the Commonwealth Games.

Taking to Instagram, the First Dates front of house, 50, shared a picture of his daughter Andrea, 17, at the event. Watch her win her first gold below:

He wrote alongside the emotional post: "It’s gold in the mixed [diving]. I'm crying [Andrea]. [Noah Williams] well done to you both."

Reacting to Fred's proud post, broadcaster Ayo Akinwolere wrote: "Fred it's been a pleasure watching your daughter's performance and maturity in the studio - so excited for what's to come. What a debut at the Commonwealths …. I'm not proud you are [sic]."

"Flipping amazing!" added a fan while a third remarked: "They were incredible."

Fred thanked fans on Twitter for their support following Andrea's first win, writing: "Thank you so much for all the messages congratulating Andrea. 

"It's really nice. Really warming. Thanks. I just want to apologise as I can't respond to all. It's very kind x"

He went on to add: "That last dive! To pull it off like that! Wow!!!! What a performance!"

Andrea herself said that her dad was so proud that she saw him fighting back tears after cheering her on from the event itself.

She said: "He gave me a thumbs up. I think he didn't want to cry so he didn't really say much but I think my parents were really, really happy for me. 

"I had quite shaky calves for the last dive. I think that definitely helped with the push that I needed. But I've never had that much fun in a competition. I've got a hot chocolate waiting for me to celebrate."

She went on to celebrate winning gold in an emotional post on her own Instagram, writing that she had never felt mentally so at peace.

Explaining how it was a series of firsts for her, the 17-year-old wrote: "My first commonwealth games, first international home games and first time diving in front of a huge crowd and my oh my… a gold medal AND a new PB ! [sic]"

She then addressed her family directly, writing: "Mamma, Papa and Matteo, i told you I would bring it home for you. I hope you're proud of me."

The Commonwealth Games are currently being held in Birmingham and will come to a close today (August 8).
