He was swiftly congratulated by celebrity friends including Jamie Redknapp and Becky Vardy.
James later shared a sweet video cuddling his son captioned ‘best feeling in the world’ and a family snap with Kennedy and the pair’s dog.
Last month, the sports star got very friendly with a bevy of beauties in Ibiza, Spain on Thursday, during an afternoon of partying with girls at Blue Marlin beach club, after missing out on being selected for the England Euro 2020 squad.
He showed off his heavily inked torso as he went shirtless at the day party on July 4 while getting cosy with different women who joined him.

The tattooed sports star – who previously dated Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague – spent the day in a pair of black swim shorts, and a pair of low-top trainers.
At one point he enjoyed a drink on his daybed with a raven-haired beauty, and later, as day turned to night, wrapped his arms around another stunning lady.
While James soaked up the sun in Ibiza, British-born beauty Kennedy took to Instagram to tell her followers that she had ‘absolutely nothing’ to do.
The next day, the heavily pregnant model lamented the rain in the UK.
On April 27, James shared a photograph of Kennedy’s baby scan with a Leicester City football shirt brandishing the word: ‘daddy.’

It’s not clear how long the couple have been together, but they began posting photographs of each other on social media at the end of 2020.
MailOnline contacted James Maddison’s representatives for comment.
James has emerged as an exciting talent in English football after signing for Leicester City in June 2018.
Daddy-to-be! On April 27th, James took to Instagram to share his baby news with fans
The Coventry-born midfielder made his senior international debut from the bench in England’s 7-0 win over Montenegro at Wembley Stadium, in November 2019.
As one one of the best Premier League players this season, James looked certain to make into the England team for the Euro 2020 campaign.
But his place dramatically went out of the window after he reportedly hid from his Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers when they broke the Covid rules at a party back in April.
James and teammates Harvey Barnes and Hamza Choudhury were all flouting Covid-19 lockdown rules by attending a house party at their teammate Ayoze Perez’s £1.3 million home with around 18 other guests.
Brendan Rodgers is said to have urged them to leave the party – but the four players decided to tell the partygoers to ‘hide’ before turning off the lights to make it appear like no one was home, reported The Sun.

Police had attended Perez’s home in Leicester at around 12.20am last Sunday but took no action after the property was found in darkness.
But afterwards, half of the guests decided to catch taxis to Choudhury’s home in Nottingham, which is 30 miles away, at 1am to continue their lockdown-flouting party.
Their ‘bitterly disappointed’ manager, Brendan, said the trio had a lack of respect for Brits during the national lockdown.
