Charlie and Anna announced they were expecting again in July last year and decided to keep the sex of their baby a secret, despite finding it out at their 20-week scan.

Following the birth of his first child, Charlie revealed that tours with his band would have to take a back seat to parenting duties.

'I don't think I could miss key points in my kids' life when they're growing up,' he told The Sun.

'I love touring and it means the world to me but I think I'd have to organise it in a way where I'm not missing out on my kids' upbringing.'
