Ben Foden and his wife Jackie are 'expecting their first child together'

Ben Foden and his wife Jackie are reportedly expecting their first child together.

The couple's happy news comes a little more than six months after they revealed they had tied the knot.

An insider confirmed the news to MailOnline, adding that Ben and Jackie are "over the moon".

'They're so excited to become parents together for the first time and are looking forward to starting their new lives as a family," the source explained. "The plan is to move from America back to the UK and raise the baby here – there's lots to organise but they can't wait for their new arrival."

Ben shares 7-year-old daughter Aoife and 5-year-old son Tadhg with his ex-wife, Una Healy, whom he split from in 2018.

Neither Ben or Jackie have publicly confirmed the news.

Earlier this week, the entrepreneur shared a throwback photo of the two of them from over the holidays with what fans thought was a baby bump in view.

"America the beautiful," she wrote alongside the photo. "Missing my Benny while he’s in Vegas and reminiscing about what a beautiful Christmas we had."

In August 2019, Ben revealed that he and Jackie had tied the knot - as he shared a tribute to his wife, whom he called the "greatest human being I’ve ever come across".

"This last year has been by far my toughest and most turbulent for a number of reasons that many of you I’m sure are aware of, in some way or another.The world has a funny way of working things out, many people think I’m a bad person - as I’m sure they’ll be many nasty comments left under this post by keyboard warriors a plenty," he wrote alongside a series of photos from their big day.

"But I met a girl who seriously swept me off my feet and in a time of hardship showed me love, a deep devoted love. People will say we are mad or crazy or even fools, as @snackyjax and I had only been dating seriously for a little over 2 weeks before deciding to get married.

"But when someone like her comes in to your life, why would I wait?"
