Stavros Flatley star Lagi Demetriou, 25, has announced the happy news that he and fiancée Annika Crawford have welcomed their first child.
The couple first shared their baby news via Annika’s Instagram, posting a photo of Annika’s bump with the caption: “Our next chapter – Baby Demetriou.”
Now, they have confirmed the baby’s birth by shared a touching black and white photo of a tiny new born baby’s hand. The caption simply read: “Xenia Demetriou 31 03 2022”.
Lagi shot to fame on Britain’s Got Talent 13 years ago. As part of the hilarious dance act Stavros Flatley, Lagi and his father reached the 2009 finals after the judges loved their crazy dance routines. Many people will remember him as a child star, in one of the most iconic BGT auditions of all time as the pair made fun of Michael Flatley’s Irish dancing with a comical Cypriot version.
However, following their appearance on Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions in 2019, Lagi quit Stavros Flatley, saying he wanted to concentrate on his barber shop business, based in Cyrpus.

New parents Lagi and Annika received lots of supportive messages of love and congratulations, including some from fellow BGT contestants.
BGT The Champions winners Twist and Pulse commented: “The biggest congratulations to you all” and singers Molly Rainford added: “Congrats to you both.”
The 2009 Britain’s Got Talent finals were won by dance troupe Diversity, and the runner up was Susan Boyle.
All is not lost for fans of Stavros Flatley, as Lagi’s dad Demi has announced that the act will continue with his nephew Samson, 19, taking Lagi’s place.
Demi has also claimed that he and his son made a whopping £2 million following their success on the show and subsequent tours and appearances!
