Mum Sarra also posted a message on her Twitter page. She said: “We owe a huge debt of thanks to our local hospital & amazing staff, who gave me the most incredible care, while our family of 3 became 4.” The famous couple had a tough time when their first baby Callum was born 11 weeks early and weighing just 2lbs 2oz in 2014.

At the time, Sarra told TV’s Lorraine: "Hopefully it's something that other people can take comfort from. I would never have thought I would have ventured down that road again but actually time is a great healer and we're so excited about it." Asked whether she felt more anxious this time around, Sarra replied: "Maybe. The point is, prematurity or having a sick baby, it's unexpected for most people. So that's the shock of it. It might not happen again, but we'll see."
