The couple announced their fourth pregnancy back in October, with model Alex taking to Twitter to share their happy news. At the time, she tweeted: "We are all very excited for our new baby to arrive next year!! Number 4," alongside several baby emoticons. Speaking previously to HELLO!, Alex opened up about the possibility of having a little boy to follow in Steven's footballing footsteps. "I know Steven has said before he would like one but the chances of us having one is slim with having three girls," she confessed. "He laughs and says he can't risk it - it's going to cost him a fortune in weddings if we have another girl!"
