Becky and Andy found out their baby's gender during a scan and joked they were left in no doubt about expecting a son. “He was on his back with his legs wide open showing us his full package," Becky, 32, said. "I couldn’t stop laughing. It was such a funny, joyous moment."

She added that she and Andy have always "had a feeling" the couple's first child would be a boy. "We had a feeling and so did our friends and family," said Becky, who has a five-year-old daughter, Summer, with her ex-husband Harry Needs.

"I feel different this time. I’m bigger and I’ve been craving carbs and savoury things, not sweet things like I did with Summer."

Becky and Andy, 30, a facilities manager, met via dating app Bumble in January 2018 and the couple moved in together last summer. They live ten minutes away from Harry, who co-parents Summer.
