The couple got engaged in July 2020 during a holiday to Mallorca. The couple made their relationship public in June 2019 following Jim’s split from ex-wife Tanya (opens in new tab) Burr.

Jim said he wanted to "shout from the rooftops" when Sarah's pregnancy test (opens in new tab) showed up positive. 

He said the news has brought them both "immeasurable joy".

‘We can't wait to proudly show our baby off to friends and family, and when we're ready, the world.' He added.

The vlogger said to his two million-plus followers, "The last 12 weeks have been such an odd mixture of hopefulness about what's to come, and worry that all may not be well."

"I may have had a part in making this little miracle, but I'm sure whoever they turn out to be, they'll be the making of me."
