She added that she was surprised by the news since she was certain that she was expecting a girl, explaining: "I was so convinced I was having a little girl, perhaps I was somewhat hoping to raise a little feminist with a strong mind? But I know that this little boy will grow up so loved and supported, with great values and the upmost respect for women... and hopefully he'll make a great big brother one day!"

The pair announced that they were expecting their first child together back in July, telling HELLO!: "From the moment I found out, it felt so right... I've never been that maternal. When friends have been like: 'I want to meet someone, settle down and have children,' I never felt the same. I guess I've been a free spirit."
