Meanwhile, Cat took to pregnancy very naturally. "I'm actually fine. I'm not too bad at all. I'm looking forward though to this week being over so I don't have to wear high heels for a long time. There's been a lots of heels this week," the 38-year-old told E! News when asked about her pregnancy cravings.

"I managed to squeeze myself into this Monique Lhuillier gown. We had to let the back out a little bit but everything else is pretty okay. I'm hanging in there."

The pair secretly wed in Rome in 2012

The happy couple first met when they presented talent show Fame Academy together in 2002. The pair stepped out as a couple a decade later in March 2012 and married at St Isidore's College Church in Rome in September of the same year.

"People wait [to get married] because they need to get to know each other first," he explained. "Cat and I were friends for such a long time, a good ten years, so we already knew each other very well."
