Alfonso Ribeiro AKA ‘Carlton’ Admits To Missing his baby on I’m A Celeb Get Me Out Of Here

Jungle life is taking it’s toll on Alfonso Ribeiro in I’m A Celeb Get Me Out Of Here as he admits to missing his newborn

While tensions are hotting up in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, Alfonso Ribeiro, AKA Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, is feeling a little blue. Last night, he revealed he’s missing his newborn baby and is desperate to go back home.

‘I feel like this show has taken my spark away, it’s been hardest thing I’ve ever had to do in my life,’ the star admitted on last night's show. 

Alfonso revealed he had to leave his baby with partner Angela Unkrich for the show because they needed the money.

‘My wife was very nervous about me leaving and doing anything while she was in her last trimester. So for three months I’ve turned down jobs,’ said the actor.

‘The minute the baby came I was then having to go back to work. It [I’m A Celeb…] was an opportunity to make up for the money lost.’

Leaving a young baby who’s three weeks old to join the camp can’t have been easy for the star.
