Toned and taut tum … pole dancing teacher Nicole gave birth to love child around six months ago

Joshua revealed his son to his 600,000 Twitter followers after posting this picture of the six-month old

According to The Sun, Miss Osbourne, who stars in YouTube pole-dancing videos, teaches at the Femme Fitness gym in Watford and lives in a £500,000 flat in Finchley, London, with Joseph. Joshua, 26, waited six months to reveal he had a child via Twitter yesterday to his 600,000 followers, sharing a photo of his ‘lil champ’ in a car seat.
Joshua, from Watford, Hertfordshire, captioned the adorable image with: ‘Achieved one of my goals as a professional boxer! Now the dust has settled it’s time to relax with my lil champ JJ’.
The couple, who met at Kings Langley School in Watford, are said to be sharing responsibility for looking after Joseph with their wider families, but a friend a of Miss Osbourne’s told The Sun she wanted the family to unite under the same roof.
The friend said: ‘As a new mum in love with her baby’s father and living in a smart London home, she should be on cloud nine but it’s hard at times being left to bring up a baby alone.
‘It’s sad Anthony won’t move in for keeps. She has a bubbly personality. She’s beautiful inside and out.’

The London 2012 gold medallist is also said to still live with his mother in a former council flat in north London.
Miss Osbourne is also said to be worried about the attention given to Joshua since his boxing career took off and his romantic links to model Cara Delevingne, 23, and X Factor judge Rita Ora, 25.
Joshua, who has 16 knockout wins from 16 fights and trained at Finchley Boxing Club, became IBF World Champion last weekend against US fighter Charles Martin within just two rounds. His son has made the new IBF Heavyweight Champion a ‘softie’ according to friends, who say he and Miss Osbourne make a ‘perfect couple.
Just one year before winning Olympic gold for Britain in 2012, Joshua, then 22, was at rock-bottom, pleading guilty to drug dealing after he was arrested for possessing cannabis and intent to supply the drug.

Dedicated mum … Nicole pushes baby Joseph on outing.
“She attracts attention everywhere she goes and it’s been difficult for her watching Anthony grow to be famous and attract so much wealth and attention from hordes of women.”
“He is away training overseas for long periods and has to switch off for months ahead of big title fights.”

He was spared jail but suspended from Britain’s boxing squad and sentenced to a 12-month community order and 100 hours’ unpaid work. At the time, Joshua, who worked as a brick-layer after he left school, said the arrest was a wake up call.
He said: ‘The arrest changed me a lot. It forced me to grow up and to respect my responsibilities.
‘I’m not happy that I did what I did and there’s no way that kind of thing will ever happen again, but in a way I’m glad it did because it woke me up.’
Now Joshua, who is only 16 fights and a mere 34 rounds experienced, is already smashing records at a monstrous gallop.
