Freddie Flintoff is expecting his fourth child with wife Rachael.

The former England cricket captain and his wife are expecting their fourth child together 11 years after welcoming their youngest little one.

The pair revealed the news last week when they attended the Virgin Atlantic Attitude Awards, which celebrate the LGBTQ community in the public eye.

Freddie and Rachael, who have been married for 14 years, walked the red carpet together, with expectant mum Rachael displaying her growing baby bump in a black wrap dress.

“They’re over the moon to be expecting again,” a source told MailOnline. “It’s been exciting news for all the family.”

The Top Gear host, whose real name is Andrew, and wife Rachel are already parents to three kids, 15-year-old Holly, 13-year-old Corey and 11-year-old Rocky, and are expecting to become parents to their fourth some time in the new year.

The sportsman, who takes part in comedy talk show A League Of Their Own, alongside fellow sporting legend Jamie Redknapp, previously opened up on having more children, suggesting that he was looking forward to the next stage of parenting and wasn’t too keen on having another baby.

Speaking back in 2016, he said, “We thought about it. I originally wanted five but you have three and that felt like enough. I couldn’t go back to the nappy stage now.”

However, a few years on it seems as though the pair has changed their mind.

Just last month Freddie was involved in a concerning accident while filming car stunt show Top Gear, which he presents alongside Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris.

The presenter managed to avoid serious injury after he was involved in a crash at 124mph while he was taking part in a race for the show.

The potentially dangerous crash took place on the same track where former presenter Richard Hammond famously nearly lost his life.

At the time of the incident Freddie said: “I’m absolutely fine and have been back filming.

“I go to great lengths to make sure I do well in Top Gear drag races but, on this occasion, I went a few lengths too far.

“It will look more ridiculous than dangerous when you see it on TV.”

Big congrats to Freddie and Rachael on their exciting news.
