The couple, who have been engaged for a year, revealed that they have previously suffered two miscarriages which is why they're calling the news a "miracle."

Brian and Danielle have been honest about their struggles to get pregnant and recently opened up about their year long IVF journey.

Danielle said: "It does [feel like a miracle] but I feel awful saying that, as I've had so many messages on Instagram."

"We’re 15 weeks along now... We’re due on 14 May. But they said normally with your first baby it can be early."

The couple have been receiving thousands of messages of well-wishes from friends, family and fans around the world.

"The IVF community is so lovely and I’ve heard real traumatic stories from people who have been trying for 10 years, people who have had eight-plus miscarriages, so I feel we got lucky on our third attempt," said Danielle.

Brian, who proposed to his PE teacher fiancée last December, already has two daughters with Kerry Katona, Molly, 19, and Lilly-Sue, 17.

The singer revealed his children were excited to hear that they would be welcoming a new family member next year.

"They’re very maternal and I can’t wait for them to be part of our family life as well," he said.

" t’s going to be good. They’re excited. They’ve been with us since the beginning of the IVF, so they’ve gone through all the highs and lows."
