‘Thank you God for giving me another miracle baby. See you in June bubba.’
Earlier this year, Michael was every inch the doting dad as he enjoyed a family holiday with Gianluca’s mother Helen Harris and their son.
The trio headed abroad for a spot of sunshine, with Helen taking to Instagram to share a slew of happy snaps from their time abroad.
The trip marks a major milestone for the family, with Michael previously breaking down in tears over Helen’s traumatic labour.
Gianluca was born with a rare defect where his intestines had developed outside his body. But nearly two years on the tot looked happy and healthy in the photos.
Helen shared sweet snaps of a shirtless Michael on the beach with their son as well as ones of their boy sitting on his lap while out for dinner and on the airplane.
In another photo, Gianluca enjoyed a paddle in a pool with his orange armbands.
Helen, who has two other children from a previous relationship, captioned the photo: ‘A beautiful week away in the warm sun to relax, reset and spend some quality time with little Gianluca before he grows up too quickly! Thank you @thegrecs.
‘It was strange knowing @lily.may_harris was in Switzerland skiing, @c.__harris was doing everything football in Spain and we were relaxing under the warm sun and blue skies, but I guess it will happen more and more as they get older…so proud of them both, their strength and independence …plus, they had an amazing time!!.’

It came after Michael reunited with the Di Marco family 25 years after appearing on the soap.
The family were main characters on the BBC show in the 90s and consisted of mother Rosa (Louise Jameson) and her sons Beppe (Michael Greco) and Gianni, (Marc Bannerman).
Younger sisters Teresa and Nicky, played by Leila Birth and Carly Hillman, also featured on the soap as grandparents Bruno and Luisa and grandson Joe, who was Beppe’s son.
They proved a success in Walford with their family-run Giuseppe’s restaurant, but by the time 2000 had arrived, then-show executive John Yorke decided to cull the family, apart from Beppe and Joe who he kept on until 2002.
