But after the recent loss of their dog Ella, James has shared some happy news - that he's extending his family with the announcement of his wife's pregnancy.
And he enlisted the sweet help of their dog Mabel who can be seen stood on a wall as she pull up Alizée's white crochet jumper with her teeth to reveal her growing baby bump beneath.
James uploaded two snaps showing Alizée standing in the garden showing off her baby bump with a sweet side profile picture.
James captioned the snap, "We couldn’t be more excited … well Mable might be. It was a very difficult start to the year after losing my beloved Ella however we will end the year with the most precious little addition to our growing family."
Fans have shared their joy at the news.
One fan wrote, "Congrats James! Another beautiful blonde cousin for Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince 'the animated Prince ' Louis."
Another fan put, "Congratulations to you both. Enjoy all the planning"
And a third fan added, "Wow, so happy for the both of you CONGRATULATIONS."
James has previously spoken out about suffering from depression and he detailed how his late pooch Ella helped save his life.
At the time he shared, "Farewell to my faithful Ella, the dog who saved my life I’ve written a little tribute to Ella in The Sunday Times. I miss her a lot. “Whether you have a dog or not, all of us have a time in our lives when we struggle to make sense of a loss, and nothing can prepare you for that void. I suppose writing this has been my way of trying to process that loss, while hopefully helping others at the same time.”

James is expected to be kept busy when their baby arrives - from learning how to get a baby to sleep to foods that give energy (when you haven't slept because of your newborn).
It will be Carole and Michael Middleton's seventh grandchild. - they are already grandparents to Kate's Prince George, Charlotte and Louis plus Pippa's children Arthur, Grace and Rose.
And recently it was reported that Carole was ready to focus on being a granny, stepping back from a special role in order to do so.
