Various media outlets reported the news hours before the official statement, claiming that Michael and his Buenos Aires-born wife Luisana were going to make an announcement.

The couple welcomed little Noah in August 2013. Their second son Elias was born in January of this year.

Michael has previously spoken about his regret at not having children earlier. He said on Loose Women: "The only regret that I have in my life is that I took this long to have kids, because I had no idea the perspective it would give me. I had no idea how much I would love being a dad. That's it, that's all I care about... I love them too much probably, if there was such a thing.

"It's made everything else so insignificant, moments that I was afraid of and moments that would overwhelm me have now become a joy because I've realised how not serious they are compared to what is really important, which is Noah and Eli and that's it."
