Joshua and Hollie Wright welcomed their first baby, Joshua James Angelo Wright, into the world on 22 February this year.

The little boy weighed 5lb 9oz and was born a month earlier than expected. One of his middle names, Angelo, is derived from the word "angel", and it is a nod to his birth date: 22-02- 2022, a palindromic number.

"He's a special boy. It feels like it was meant to be that he arrived on that date," said Hollie in an exclusive chat with HELLO!

When quizzed on starting a family of his own by The Sun Online, Mark revealed: "We say we're going to try [for a baby] every year but something comes up with work. So it'll be Michelle filming in South Africa and then I got the job in Los Angeles – so we think, right, we'll try next year."

He continued: "With kids, I used to want three or four. But now, I'm 31, we're not having kids any time before 32. I think we could have two or three. Twins would be great because you're getting two out of the way at once!"
