The 38-year-old is already a doting father to daughters Geneva, eight, and Olivia, four, as well as having daughter Sancha, 14, from a previous relationship.

Earlier this year, the dad-of-four was confirmed as one of the new hosts on The One Show. He presents the BBC series alongside Alex Jones - who has been a permanent member of the team since 2010 - from Mondays to Wednesdays, while Ronan takes the helm on Thursdays and Fridays.

After sharing Jermaine's happy news, Ronan turned to his co-host Sam Quek who had some happy news of her own. "Staying on the baby front, I am 17 weeks pregnant!" she said. "Exciting times. Going to be a busy Mumma in the next few weeks."

The gold medal-winning Olympian welcomed her first baby, Molly, with husband Tom Mairs in March this year. The couple married at Chester Racecourse in 2018 after getting engaged in June 2017 when Tom proposed during a holiday in Tenerife.

Before she found fame as a presenter, Sam was an English former field hockey player. She also won gold as part of the British team at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
