Aston Merrygold and his wife announced the news in such a special way.

JLS singer Aston Merrygold and his wife Sarah Lou Richards are expecting their third child together.

The couple confirmed their joyous news this morning by sharing the sweetest video.

The parents enlisted the help of their adorable sons Grayson and Macaulay for the announcement.

In the sweet clip, the parents ask their boys if they have their attention because they have to tell them something special.

The two young boys are sitting on the sofa at their family home and look beyond excited.

The mum even shared clips from her hospital visits as well as footage of her sons kissing her sonograms.
