The couple kept the pregnancy of their first child under wraps for months.


Aimee broke the news on Twitter on Tuesday

Just over a month ago, Oritse shared the happy news on Twitter when he posted a photo of his girlfriend, revealing her blossoming baby bump as she leaned against him. 

Aimee was quick to retweet the photo, adding, "@oritse and our lil legend!!!!! Words cant describe how I feel!!! Love u xxx".

The smitten pair spoke exclusively to HELLO! magazine last year, when Oritse said they were "having the time of our lives."
