The couple is expecting a baby girl in March 

The couple announced their pregnancy in an exclusive interview with HELLO! back in September. The happy news followed a long struggle to conceive, which included fertility treatment. Ola shared that she was overwhelmed to find out that she had fallen pregnant on the first round of IVF in June, despite doctors only giving them a 50 per cent chance of success on their initial attempt. "I don't think it's properly sunk in, I still can't quite believe it," the 37-year-old said.

This is probably the most special and exciting thing that has ever happened to us."
