Jodie's pregnancy was confirmed in December 2019, following their secret wedding ceremony.

In an interview on The Graham Norton Show, Joshua said they had waited to be together before finding out whether or not she was pregnant.

Jodie had been out of town for work, but he revealed they had "an inkling" that she was pregnant.

He said, "We kind of had an inkling. Cycles change. This was literally the most joyous moment of my life.

"She was working out of town and I asked her to hold off a couple days before taking a test so we could do it together."

Jodie confirmed the sex of her baby in an Instagram Stories video, where she was heard saying, "Can you see her dancing in there? Every time I try to record she stops."

Huge congratulations to the new parents!
