Jeremy Kyle, 58, hits back at cruel trolls after claims he’s ‘too old’ to be a dad

Jeremy Kyle, 58, hits back at cruel trolls after claims he’s ‘too old’ to be a dad

He welcomed his sixth child last Friday

Jeremy Kyle, 58, has shared his response to trolls after claims he’s ‘too old’ to be a dad.

The Jeremy Kyle Show host just welcomed his sixth child to the world with his wife, Victoria, 40.

Iris Rose Victoria Kyle - the couple's second baby together - arrived last Friday (26 January).

Jeremy and Victoria welcomed their son Oliver, back in 2020 but Jeremy is also a father to daughters Harriet, 33, Alice, 20, Ava, 18, and son Henry, 13, who he shares with his ex-wife, Carla Germaine.

Since then, the British presenter has opened up about fatherhood, with there being three decades now between his newborn and his eldest Harriet, who he had when he was 24.

Jeremy Kyle has hit back at claims he’s ‘too old’ to be a dad after welcoming his sixth child at 58.

"The world has definitely changed since I first became a dad," Jeremy told The Sun, joking: "One thing never changes - no sleep, no money, no sex!"

Hitting back at claims he was 'too old' to have another baby, the ITV talk show host added: "It's no one else's business."

With that said, however, Jeremy has also ruled out trying for baby number seven: "I've thought about the answer to this and it's pretty simple. Six is three on each side to carry my coffin, so I think I'm done.

"Six is a great number."

He continued: "Of course people say 'oh come on you're 58' but you're as young as the people around you.

"I've got a young wife and I've got so many children now, I've probably got more than Boris Johnson.

"But every weekend is spent running around taking them to hockey classes and swimming lessons or whatever and it keeps me young.

"I'm 58 and have never had more than four hours sleep a night. That's why I do the Breakfast Show."

Jeremy shared the exciting news of Iris' birth with his 145k followers on Instagram, captioning a post: "She’s finally here… Iris Rose Victoria Kyle arrived today at 12.31pm weighing 7lb 6oz..

"Mummy was absolutely incredible and we are just so blessed to have our beautiful new daughter."

Jeremy said he and Victoria, who he tied the knot with back in 2021, were 'over the moon' to be welcoming another child to start off 2024, adding his family would be 'complete'.

Speaking about Victoria, Jeremy explained: "Vic always wanted kids.

"She saved me and it was right to have a family with her."

He pointed out: "There's 18 years' difference between us, so it's the family she's always wanted.

"Vicky dragged me from a very difficult place seven years ago and I owe her more than I could possibly give her back."
