Gavin and Stacy’s Baby Neil is now ten years old and his mum shared photos of what he looks like now

A boy who was a baby ten years ago now looks like a ten year old boy.

The episode of Gavin and Stacy where Nessa family gives birth to baby Neil (Series 2, episode 7) aired all the way back on April 20th 2008 – yes, that was ten years ago. That's how time works.

Anyway, Baby Neil was played by a genuine baby, because presumably him being played by an adult wearing a nappy would have been weird and disorientating. And if you have even the most basic understanding of human biology, you will of course know that babies age and grow into ‘children’. That’s how these things work.

Emily Merchant, the mum of the acting baby that played Neil, recently shared a photo of what he looks now.


He looks like a lovely kid, to be honest. Why not return in another ten years to see what he looks like as a 20 year old?
