THE Repair Shop’s Will Kirk has announced the happy news that he’s going to be a father.
The BBC One star announced he and wife Polly Snowdon are expecting a baby this summer.
Will, who is best known for being part of the restoration program, posed with a blue mug that had the word “Dad” written on the front.
The proud dad-to-be looked radiant as he told fans they were “excited” for the new arrival.
Wearing a cream knit jumper and grinning from ear to ear, Will wrote: “A new mug to add to my collection this summer.
“We are so excited for our little new arrival and for expanding our family ♥️.”
Will’s fans rushed to congratulate the star on the wonderful news.
One wrote: “Oh nice news ❤️❤️.”
Another wrote: “So cute!! Very happy for you, congratulations 🥳.”
Will and Polly wed in a beautiful ceremony in August 2021 and he usually keeps his personal life private, apart from a rare glimpse of the couple on their wedding day.
Polly, who is a doctor, looked sensational in a flowy wedding dress with lace sleeves.
While sharing his experience of lockdown, he said: “I’ve put up a lot of shelves, the beautiful fiancé has kept me very busy!
“We were supposed to get married in August and unfortunately that didn’t happen, so we’re going to get married next year. Yes, I’ve been busy!’
Will rose to fame on the BBC restoration show where experts restore old items to give them a second life for their owners.
He is one of the show’s most frequently consulted experts, as they change each episode based on the nature of the item in question.
Will works in the carpentry shop and is a carpenter. Anything related to woodwork means he will get a call to help restore the item.
He got into his job after seeing his grandfather working in his workshop, so carpentry has been in the family for a while.
As an undergraduate, he studied graphic design at the prestigious University of the Arts and went on to pursue a further degree in restoration and conservation of antique furniture.
After that he worked in Italy for a while but returned to London and finally set up his own workshop in 2012 with a team of craftsmen.
