Jamie Vardy and his wife Rebekah have welcomed a baby boy

Jamie and Rebekah announced her pregnancy in July, just a few weeks after they tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in Peckforton Castle – as featured exclusively in HELLO! magazine.  

Shortly before Christmas, Rebekah showed off her baby bump in a series of photographs to celebrate what she said was her final pregnancy.

The couple announced their pregnancy news in July

"I wanted to do some pictures like Demi Moore did for Vanity Fair," she explained to the Sun. "Jamie and I know this will be our last baby and it suddenly hit me that after the birth I will never be pregnant again. I found an amazing photographer, Karis Kennedy, and I went for it. I am so pleased I did.

"Pregnancy does amazing things," she added. "I'm Mediterranean and my body wants to be curvy. At one point in the first few months my bum seemed to be growing faster than my bump!

"Jamie loves the pictures and we are getting a couple of them framed to go up at home."
