Jordan wrote alongside a sweet picture of him kissing Naomi on her forehead: ‘Bumpdate🙌🏾❤️! Final week now, @naomiella21 over 39 weeks and handled everything this crazy month has thrown at us like a boss, so proud you bubb, can’t believe your due date is in less than a week, less than a week until we meet our little girl❤️’.

The pair announced back in January that they were expecting a second child - less than a year after they welcomed their first child Cassius, who was born in May 2018.

Congratulations to the happy family!
