Nick Knowles and his pregnant wife Jessica

As they soaked up the sunshine walking around the grounds and cheered on their favourite horses at the races, Nick and Jessica exuded elegance.Earlier this year the couple revealed to HELLO! magazine that they were expecting a baby boy in the summer. Nick, who already has sons Charles, 20, and TJ, 18, and 19-year-old daughter Tuesday, opened up about becoming a father again later in life. "Earlier it did hit me, 'When he's 16, I'll be 67. Blimey!' But I'm a bit of a Peter Pan in spirit and physically I keep myself pretty fit," said Nick.

Nick Knowles and Jessica married in Rome in 2012

Jessica, who runs an antiques business and design consultancy, added that she didn't want Nick to be in the delivery room. "Giving birth is a very physical process and I don't want him to see me in that vulnerable state," she said. "I prefer a little bit of smoke and mirrors. I don't think it would be beneficial to our relationship or to me to have him there and I have always taken that view." The couple married in a beautiful ceremony in Rome in September 2012, in front of just twelve guests. At the time, Jessica told HELLO! magazine that despite the age difference, "there really [was] no sign of it in [their] day-to-day relationship.""I find it very bizarre, the suggestion that I must have some other reason for being with Nick other than the fact that I have fallen totally, completely in love with him," she added.
