"It's fantastic, we feel so lucky and grateful," Simon said at the time. "Whenever I touch Ayshen's tummy, the baby moves, as if it knows it's me. I whisper: 'You're going to be loved so much and I can't wait to meet you.'"

"We're more than ready to become parents and I couldn't be happier," added Ayshen. "Having a child is all I've ever wanted. Really soon, we'll experience that moment and I'll treasure forever the first time Simon and I gaze down at our baby."

The new arrival is bittersweet as the couple revealed that their pregnancy journey hasn't been an easy one. Ayshen fell pregnant six months after their August 2018 wedding, which was featured exclusively in HELLO!. But they suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage soon afterwards.

"We were devastated as we said our goodbyes," Simon revealed. "Nobody talks much about miscarriage and the physical and emotional effects it has. When it happened for the second time a year later, we went through the pain again."

To remove the stress from their lives, the couple decided to stop trying to get pregnant and relaxed into a more natural routine. "That's when it happened," added Simon. "Ayshen fell pregnant immediately. So our baby was made out of love with no pressure."
