Congratulations to Gregg Wallace, who is set to be a dad for a third time!

The Masterchef judge and his wife Anna are expecting their first baby together, the couple have confirmed.

Making the announcement in OK! Magazine, they revealed they’d been trying for quite some time before conceiving naturally this summer. They’re expecting a boy.

“We were due to start IVF but then it happened naturally after two years of trying,” Gregg said.

“The doctor told us it was a miracle Anna was pregnant.

“I’ve been scared and stressed since she fell pregnant but since we had the 12-week scan recently it feels joyous.

“Seeing a scan of our baby son and the strength of his heartbeat made me cry.”

Gregg and Anna, who are due to welcome the little one in May of 2019, have a name picked out for their son already.

“We’re going to call him Sid Massimo Wallace,” Gregg said.

It’ll be a case of one and done for the pair, who don’t plan on having any more after baby Sid comes along.

“I’ve been happy with the idea of just having one child right from the start,” Anna, 32, said.

“The fact we’re having one baby is a miracle – we’re blessed enough.”

Gregg is already dad to two grown-up children, Tom and Libby, whom he had with ex-wife Denise.

He and Anna tied the knot in 2016, three years after meeting on Twitter.

He’s been married four times altogether. He and first wife Christine were wed for just six weeks in 1991. He married Denise in 1999 before their marriage ended in 2004 and went on to marry Heidi Browne in 2010.
