EastEnders’ Jack Derges announces fiancée Yasmin Alamiri has given birth to second child
Former EastEnders actor Jack Derges announced the birth of his second child and revealed an interesting choice of name too.
The soap star, who played Andy Flynn on the BBC soap, shared an adorable snap of his newborn baby boy on Instagram and fans of the actor flocked to the comments to congratulate him and his partner.
The 34 year old is engaged to dance academy founder Yasmin Alamiri and the star shared the happy news and introduced baby Raffi into the world.
Jack posted a sweet photo of his newborn sleeping in a blanket with a tiny knitted hat on. The Albert Square star wrote: "Raffi Jack Derges. Freddie Gray has a little brother. Mother and baby are happy and healthy.
"Yasmin is a total star. My heart is just full of love for my beautiful family", he added.
Followers of the actor shared the love in the comments section and praised his fiancée and mum to two year old Freddie.
One user wrote: “Oh Jack WOW!!!! Many many congratulations and what a beautiful little baby Raffi is… !!! xxx gorgeous x," and another joked "Freddie has a jiu jitsu partner! Congratulations!"
Nitin Ganatra, the man behind the popular Enders' character Masood Ahmed joined in the congratulations too, as he penned: "Oh! MY. What a beauty. Congratulations Jack!"
The name Raffi is primarily a male name of Arabic origin that means to be Noble or High.
The name is also one of the names of God in Islam, stemming from the Arabic verb "rafa" meaning "to lift, to raise (something high)."
Jack made his debut as hunky builder Andy Flynn in March 2016, as he arrived in Albert Square looking for revenge.
An EastEnders source told The Sun at the time: “When Andy arrived, viewers didn’t realise he was hiding a dark secret, but over the past few weeks it has become clear his intentions towards Ronnie and her family are not what they seem.
“Andy was only ever going to be in EastEnders for this story line, but it’s fair to say there is lots more drama to come before Andy leaves Walford.”
He made the trip to Walford to avenge the death of his adoptive sister Danielle, who was also the daughter of former Queen Vic landlady Ronnie Mitchell.
The teenager was run over by Charlie Brook's character Janine Butcher, shortly after being reunited with her estranged mother.
Jack ended his stint on the Square six months later, and viewers last saw him make amends with Ronnie before leaving for good.
He went on to star in West End show The Boys In The Band, and also had a guest role in Casualty too.
