And with news that Jamie is due to become a dad again, (opens in new tab) as his Swedish model girlfriend Frida Anderssen is expecting her first child, it's bound to make Louise reflect on her past choices - especially with fans wondering who is on Strictly Come Dancing 2021? (opens in new tab) as the new contestants are revealed ahead of this year's contest.
In an unearthed interview from when Louise Redknapp was a contestant on BBC Strictly Come Dancing, she spoke of her Strictly dance partner Kevin Clifton and how she hoped he'd bring her luck with having a daughter with Jamie.
At the time she said, "Two of [Kevin's] previous partners have got pregnant after the show. Bring that one on. Maybe he's the good luck charm I need to get that girl I really want. Jamie would love another baby, I'm not getting any younger so we'll see what happens. But I'm in Strictly shape now so we'll see."
Jamie Redknapp and Louise Redknapp divorced in 2017 after almost two decades together. They have two sons, Charley (opens in new tab), 16, and Beau, 12, together and Louise revealed that her sons secretly hoped they would reunite (opens in new tab) one day but chances of that happening are looking slim after Jamie's latest happy news.
It is also reported that Jamie’s father Harry Redknapp and his mother Sandra are both very happy about the news that they are going to be grandparents again when the baby is born in November.
Jamie and Louise were married for 19 years and Louise has previously opened up about her heartache (opens in new tab) and admitted she felt everyone took Jamie’s side (opens in new tab) in their split. Speaking about it in her autobiography ‘You Got This’.
Earlier this week, OK! revealed how Louise had been "knocked sideways" by Jamie and Frida's baby news after being informed of the pregnancy by family members.
A source said, "Louise was knocked sideways by the news. Jamie didn't tell her directly, she found out through family. She's happy for them both and says life goes on but at the same time, she's shocked by how quickly he's moved on and that he'll be a new dad again at nearly 50."
