Brian Dowling shares adorable video as baby Blake says her first word


Baby Blake has reached a major milestone!

Brian Dowling has shared his delight as daughter Blake has said her first word. The tiny tot is currently in France with her papa Arthur Gourounlian, where she strung together her very first word.

For the first time ever Blake said: “Daddy” much to Brian’s delight as that is the title he goes by, while Arthur uses papa.

Sharing a video of baby Blake speaking for the first time on Instagram, the TV presenter wrote: “And Just Like That, our baby girl has said her FIRST WORD!”

Saying: “And YES, IT WAS DADDY”

Poking for at the situation, Brian offered his commiserations to Arthur. “You can clearly hear daddy, right? Sorry Papa, maybe that will be next,” he joked.

The DWTS judge conceded that Blake had said Brian’s title first. Writing: “OK, OK, OK, I’ll give you that one, I heard it nice and clear.”

Their banter aside, the parents are obviously thrilled to see their little girl reaching such an important milestone.


But speaking isn’t Blake’s only first recently, as the baby just flew on a plane for the first time as well.

The family flew to Marseille, France visiting Arthur’s family, with Blake loving her first time jetted off on holiday.

As the proud papa explained: “She wasn’t crying or unsettled. She started smiling at everybody. We all know our daughter is very nosy, she loves staring and smiling at people. So, she was full of beans and full of life!”
