It's no secret that labour can be a traumatic process for everyone involved - and that includes nervous dads.

"The staff have been great.
"The nurses have been coming up to me all morning and congratulating me, which is, it's just been lovely."
He then revealed that the nurses also took the opportunity to congratulate him on his recent win at the Chortle Awards for Best Show.
He captioned the footage: "BTW….I fainted…obviously.
"During the birth, not the chortle awards."
Seann added on his Instagram stories: "Oh btw. I passed out during the birth. Of course I did. The nurse's response... 'Men' fair."
