And while the BBC star sadly revealed that he does not have time to fashion a piece of furniture for his baby, he does have other plans in motion. As he said: "As much as I would love to do something quite big I don't have the time. However, I have been whittling some wooden toys."

"I have started making an elephant," he added as an image of a wooden elephant Will had carved popped up on the screen.

He explained that he had made the hand-sized sculpture not in his television workshop but on a yoga mat on his living room floor in his spare time.

The 36-year-old woodwork expert shared with his followers the exciting news of his incoming arrival earlier month by posting a photo of himself holding a personalised mug with the words 'Papa' engraved on the front.

The good news comes just seven months after Will and Polly tied the knot in August last year. The couple were forced to postpone their wedding, which was due to be held in 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While Will prefers to keep any information about his wife under wraps, we do know that she works as a doctor and that the couple live in a beautiful property in Wandsworth, London.
