"Very excited to announce that Claudine is pregnant with our second child. We are all delighted," Robbie wrote on his Facebook alongside the short clip. "Couldn't resist sharing Robert's reaction when he found out his wish had finally come true."
In the touching video, Claudine and Robbie tell Robert that his mum has "a baby in my tummy". The adorable little boy initially seems bemused, but as the realisation dawns on him he starts beaming and excitedly clapping his hands, excitedly telling his parents that their happy news is "amazing". Clearly eager to meet his future baby brother or sister, Robert is also seen moving closer to his mum to feel her baby bump.
"Your wish came true!" exclaims Robbie, who is filming the family's milestone moment.

Robbie recently opened up about the increasingly popularity of the Major League Soccer competitions in America, attributing its growing success and his own decision to move across the pond to none other than footballing legend David Beckham.
"The reason why I came was David was the one that got me here," he told ESPN. "I think David, like Tiger Woods did in golf, he changed the sport, he changed people's salaries, he changed the growth where it's getting bigger and bigger."
