X Factor’s Eoghan Quigg is unrecognisable as he becomes dad 13 years after show

Northern Irish singer Eoghan Quigg is unrecognisable as he becomes a dad 13 years after first appearing on the X Factor.

Eoghan was just 16 years old when he appeared on X Factor back in 2008 but has now welcomed his first child at 29 years old.

He left X Factor in the semi finals which he swapped for a quieter life which he shares on his social media pages.

The star welcomed his first child into the world, Emmy Belle, with girlfriend Amy Campbell in April and regularly shares snaps with the little one.

The couple first got together in 2015 and got their first house together in 2019 where they live with Amy's two children from a previous relationship.

Speaking about becoming a father before his little girl arrived, Eoghan told The Belfast Telegraph last year that he was 'over the moon' about impending fatherhood.

He said: "We are both delighted, absolutely over the moon.

"In a very strange and tough year, it’s fantastic news and has definitely turned 2020 into a very memorable year for us – in a good way."

After X Factor ended, Eoghan went to university and used his skills to become a presenter at Northern Ireland’s Q Radio.

Eoghan is now covered in tattoos which he has showed off on his Instagram page as well as appearing on This Morning back in 2016 where he said he was back gigging.

Eoghan was an instant hit on the singing show as he performed ABBA's Does Your Mother Know? and Take That's hit Never Forget.

Fellow Irishman Louis Walsh said at the time that he had 'star quality' and Simon Cowell said 'Whatever it is, you've got it.'

He was due to be signed by Simon Cowell but was instead signed to record label RCA who he released an album with in 2009 and competed in the Irish national selection for the chance to represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2014.

However he came second and turned to football and joined Coagh United FC in 2015 before moving to Portstewart FC.

During his time on the X Factor he also famously had a romance with fellow contestant Diana Vickers.
