The couple, who tied the knot in 2016, announced that they were expecting a baby boy last year after having fertility treatment. Speaking to Sunday Mirror in July, Gregg revealed that the pair were seeking professional help to fulfil their dream of having a baby. "Medically, we are going to step it up and look at fertility treatment," he explained. "I would love to be a dad again. We are desperate for a baby and we have been consulting with the doctor. I know Anna can't wait to be a mum and she will be the most amazing mother."

Gregg, 54, is already a father to two teenage children from his second marriage to Denise Wallace. In August, Gregg and Anne-Marie celebrated their two-year wedding anniversary. The couple tied the knot in August 2016, in a romantic ceremony exclusively covered by HELLO!. "Meeting Anna has brought me what I think I've always been searching for - that big, warm family dynamic and there's real strength in that," he told HELLO! at the time. "I'm very conscious of people thinking I just do this willy-nilly. But we haven't rushed into this - we've been together for three years and I truly have never met anyone like Anna."
