Gogglebox: Jad reveals the 'surreal' moment meeting baby Malik

Jad may no longer be a third wheel at the Fahd household, as he describes he's already feeling like best friends with the newest member of Gogglebox.

Gogglebox history was made last week when Sarah Marie and Matty Fahd welcomed their little boy into the world, with Jad completing the union on Friday when he met the newest Goggleboxer baby. 

"Meeting Malik for the first time was pretty surreal," he says to LifeStyle."I felt like I knew him already because of always being around Sarah and us always talking about him."

While in the past, Jad has been dubbed as the third wheel of the house, those days are over as the business owner reveals that he and Malik already share a unique bond. "I had an image of him in my mind, so when I actually met him I felt an instant connection," he says. "I also guessed his name first go, so it was meant to be!"

Uncle Jad reveals there's only love for his new couch-buddy. "He's an angel," Jad says. "He's really calm, but you can tell he's going to have a big personality as he's also really aware. He's super cute - definitely getting the looks from Sarah and the hair from Matty!"

Through all the excitement on bringing a new Goggleboxer to the room, Jad revealed a touching moment when he felt the dynamics in the trio change. "When I was in the hospital room, Matty had a little makeshift couch with me, him and Malik sitting on it and Sarah lying on the bed next to us.

"It was funny because it was like being back at the house on Gogglebox, but also weird because there was someone new there. It was like, 'Ok, this is what it's going to be like in life from now on'.'"

But it's only good feelings from Jad, who says he is genuinely so happy to see his friends so loved-up. "There's no better feeling than to see your friends so genuinely happy and excited. They're going to be amazing parents. They've got big hearts and so much love to give."

Now that there's an even playing field in the Fahd house, Jad reveals that he's already sided with Malik and doesn't mind putting in the hard yards to keep their relationship in tact. "I can definitely feel a moment coming along when I'm holding Malik while we're watching TV,  and he has a moment when he burps or poos and Matty's like, 'Go and change him!' I can see something like that going on," he laughs.
