Ayda and Robbie had not revealed that they were expecting a fourth child, but when asked about the possibility of expanding their family, they hadn't ruled it out, either. In an appearance on Loose Women in October, the American shared that the couple was considering having more children at some point. Ayda said: "We would like to. You never know what's going to happen in the world, will it work, will it not work? But I would like to have one more." She and Robbie married in Los Angeles in 2010 after dating for four years and share another son, five-year-old Charlie, as well as daughters Teddy, seven, and Coco, one.
