The lovely story of the first ever baby to come out of First Dates is melting hearts

Ah now <3

LAST YEAR, AARON and Ibiba met on Channel 4′s First Dates and, like all the other couples, sat down for a semi-awkward dinner in front of a national television audience.

They got on really well and agreed that they would meet again.

Usually, nothing comes of such things and it’s never mentioned again. But this week, First Dates gave us an update on the couple… and it turns out they stayed together and three weeks ago Ibiba gave birth to their beautiful daughter.

Yesterday, First Dates shared their story from their first ever meeting and it’s just lovely

Out for the count.

They both spoke about why they went on First Dates originally and how their incredible journey brought them little Aziza

It was nice for First Dates to see a story actually have a happy ending beyond the show itself

And it couldn’t happen to a nicer couple.
