Speaking to Hello!, Roxy said: “We had a miscarriage last year and so there was a part of me that was worried to open up too soon about this baby because I was so worried something would happen again and I didn’t want to have to kind of tell the world.

“I think because we did go through that miscarriage you realise how fragile the baby is, and just how common actually a miscarriage is, and that so many women go through it – I had no idea how common it actually was. It just makes this feel extra special and you’re more grateful that everything’s fine.”

Roxy also revealed that they found out she was pregnant “the same week my nan passed away”. She said there’s a part of her that feels “like my nan knew we were trying for a baby and maybe this was her gift to us”.

The couple also shared their happy news on Instagram. Jack joked: “And I thought I wasn’t getting enough attention when the dog arrived…”
