Marvin Humes has revealed that his daughter Alaia is great friends with Simon Cowell's son, Eric, and is even going to his birthday party! The former JLS star opened up about his three-year-old daughter, telling the MailOnline: "Alaia's going to be going to Eric's birthday party. They're little friends and they had a play date before and they hung out at the Capital Jingle Bell Ball. They played together in the little area. He's a little bit younger. Roch was working on Xtra Factor so they would play together there. Roch is friends with Lauren. I wouldn't say I'd call Simon up and have a chat with him but I know I could call him."

The star also opened up about his wife Rochelle Humes, who is currently expecting their second child together. Talking about her pregnancy journey, he said: "She's done so well. Pregnancy is not a joke. The body needs to go through so much in the period. It's the most natural experience. This second one has gone a lot faster. You're a lot more relaxed - sometimes too relaxed. Last time we were organised five months in but we're still prepping now. She's done incredibly well and I'm so happy. It's such a whirlwind time for all pregnant women."
